New Miss May I Video Out Today


Rise Records have been offering some beasts recently, only a little while back we were treated to a re-issue of Of Mice & Men’s ‘The Flood’ with the addition of some intense new tracks. Now it’s Ohio’s melodic metal band, Miss May I‘s time to shine.

Today they unveil their latest video for ‘Balled Of A Broken Man‘, which hosts ferocious drumming and some sick riffs. The track is taken from the stunning new album ‘At Heart’ which charted at #32 in the US Billboard charts. The record was produced by famed record producer Machine (Lamb of God, Every Time I Die, Suicide Silence) this past winter at Machine Shop in Belleville, New Jersey. You can catch the vid at the bottom of the page.

Miss May I return to the UK later this year for a string of dates with the epic Texas In July and homegrown new comers Heart In Hand. The dates are as follows:

NOVEMBER
30th Club Academy, Manchester
DECEMBER
1st Classic Grand, Glasgow
2nd O2 Academy 2, Birmingham
3rd Wedgewood Rooms, Portsmouth
4th The Cockpit, Leeds
5th Rescue Rooms, Nottingham
6th Relentless Garage, London
7th Great Hall 2, Cardiff

Tickets are on sale now and are priced from £10.00.

Back in Port Lympne in Kent, at the Wild Animal Park, Saturday night will be co-headlined by The Dillinger Escape Plan and Architects. Dillinger aren’t even doing any other European festivals this summer. NONE! The rest of the line-up is looking like this so far:

The Dillinger Escape Plan (European Festival Exclusive), Architects (co-headline), Bouncing Souls, We Are The Ocean, Zebrahead, Capdown, Ceremony (UK Festival Exclusive), Polar Bear Club, Your Demise, Rise To Remain, Touche Amore (UK Festival Exclusive), La Dispute (UK Festival Exclusive), November Coming Fire, Awaken Demons (UK Festival Exclusive), Man Overboard, Lemuria, Brutality Will Prevail, Spycatcher, Death Is Not Glamorous, Rot In Hell, Polar, Cheap Girls, Heart In Hand, Hang The Bastard and Hildamay.
