Now we got something for all fans of American metalcore. Miss May I just released the date for their upcoming album alongside a new music video. As Levi Benton, singer of Miss May I, states, the video was the most extreme the band has ever done. Hence it’s no wonder why the video looks as good as it does. Besides being partly a performance video, it also shows a story board and mood-matching landscape views. It seems like the video was definitely worth the effort, but judge for yourself!
With “Lost In The Grey”, we get a typical song from a band like Miss May I. It has been composed to be easily accessible and catchy. The chorus delivers a modern metal attitude, which establishes itself directly from the beginning of the song. Outside of the chorus, you will certainly find some heavy elements! So, if you are into the band’s previous work or catchy metalcore (e.g. As I Lay Dying) in any way, you will certainly dig this. As Benton states on Loudwire:
“This is a great first track to release to the masses as it represents the effort it takes to get out of the complacent and stale life people live. The song is about finding that hope and drive to push you to a new and better life. The lion has always represented hope and ambition and now with this video it’s physical and represented as a mask that one needs to show them there is a better life for everyone, if you push for it.”
The new record, Shadows Inside, will be released on June 2nd via SharpTone Records. The band is going to tour Europe the next week, followed by an American run. Make sure to follow them on Facebook to check out their tour dates! Also, you can pre-order Shadows Inside over here!
