Upcoming “Up Close And Personal” Headline Tour Hits the U.S. East Coast in April/May 2014 with For The Fallen Dreams – Ticket Price Includes a Hard Copy CD!

MISS MAY I’s blistering new offering, Rise Of The Lion, is set to hit stores in North America on April 29, 2014 via Rise Records (April 28 in the UK, April 25 in Australia). This is MISS MAY I’s fourth album and the first to be produced by the legendary Terry Date (Pantera, Deftones, White Zombie, Bring Me The Horizon). The countless fan letters the band has received over the years are the inspiration for the tracks on Rise Of The Lion, and each track is written from the perspective of those fans or responses to them.

Today, the band slams out of the gate with a double dose of metal, offering up their brand new single ‘Gone’ along with its accompanying music video via the official Rise Of The Lion launch site, Take a listen now and while visiting the site, check out the band’s three studio updates, as well as tour date information. Beginning today at the site, you can pre-order the album in digital, physical CD, and vinyl versions, as well as special pre-order packages including exclusive Rise Of The Lion shirts, necklaces, posters, and more!

“We wanted to release a video that showed the true bare bones of our band,” states frontman Levi Benton. “We really found ourselves on this new record and we felt we needed a video that had no bells and whistles and was just five guys jamming and thrashing. It also shows the creation of the album artwork, which is a real statement about MISS MAY I. The lion logo that is being tattooed represents our band as a whole.”


Levi adds, “‘Gone’ is about heartbreak and feeling like you are lost within that heartbreak. We know everyone has felt this, so as this record being letters back to our fans we wanted to address this. One too many times I have read a letter about someone feeling so broken they felt they felt like they couldn’t make it and that our music helped them find a way. This song is for them!”


The worldwide release of Rise Of The Lion will be supported by a brief headline tour of the United States this April and May, with support from For The Fallen Dreams. MISS MAY I’s “Up Close and Personal” Tour will stop in eight cities, including a closer in their home state of Ohio at Rock On The Range. Get this – each ticket price includes a copy of Rise Of The Lion hard copy CD!

After the resounding underground success of their debut full-length release Monument, MISS MAY I took a step beyond the metalcore world they had grown up in with the release of their album At Heart in 2012. The record, produced by renowned record producer Machine (Lamb Of God), proved to be one of the strongest and most surprising metal records of the last few years, spawning huge singles in the songs ‘Hey Mister’ and ‘Day By Day’. Entering the Billboard Top 200 charts in its first week at #32, At Heart saw the band embrace a more mainstream metal approach to their music. During their 2012 Vans Warped Tour main stage onslaught, the At Heart campaign made massive leaps, seeing MISS MAY I nominated for ‘Best New Talent’ award at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards, as well as headlining the Alternative Press 2012 Tour, and picking up support at Active Rock Radio for the first time. On the live side, the band was hand-picked for tours with the likes of Five Finger Death Punch, Killswitch Engage and Bullet For My Valentine.

Baltimore, MD Heavy Hitters SKY CAME BURNING Unleash Brand New Lyric Video for Thought-Provoking Title Track ‘Vertigo’

New EP “Vertigo” Coming Early 2014

Fast-advancing Baltimore, MD metalcore band SKY CAME BURNING are releasing another exclusive for their diehard fans, this time in the form of a new lyric video for the title track off of their new EP, ‘Vertigo’. The track puts a back and forth conversation between a parent and child to music. The song was again recorded with Drewsif Stalin and the lyric video was created by Josiah Moore (Sirens and Sailors, You and Die). Check out the lyric video here:

“This song is obviously on the heavier side of our EP, but we hope people can get through the anger and on to the message,” states drummer Randall James. “‘Vertigo’ is about any kid whose ever been told to make the decision to quit something they’re passionate about. We’re told our entire life to “dream big” and “go for the gold”, but whenever we stray from the beaten path and go for something with an identity (being in a band) it’s shut down or frowned upon.”

Randall adds, “In the song, the parents are pretty much asking the kid to choose between their dream or their parents. Make a decision or get the hell out basically, we’re not going to support you any longer. The song really hits home for a lot of us, being a DIY band of semi-older ages and all. We’re not “slumming” it by any means of the word and have had a lot of support, but just the negative comments here and there, that awkward moment when people find out you’re still living at home at 26 when they’ve graduated, got married, and most times had kids. Really, the song can be interpreted however the listener likes.”




Late last month, SKY CAME BURNING released their new music video for the track ‘Remora’. The video is directed by Drewsif Stalin and is available for viewing at the band’s official YouTube page at this link:


‘Remora’ and ‘Vertigo’ are cut from the band’s upcoming EP Vertigo, set for release early next year.


SKY CAME BURNING have been performing up and down Eastern portion of the U.S. for the last few years, grabbing a substantial following and turning heads as they go. The band has shared the stage with numerous headliners like All That Remains, Sevendust, Periphery, and Born of Osiris, and won the battle of the bands for both Warped Tour and Uproar Festival this past year.


Although SKY CAME BURNING’s main focus right now is to focus on finalizing their new EP, they will perform at Empire in Springfield, VA with The Ghost Inside, Volumes and Texas and July on December 13th, and tickets are just $14. The band plans to tour in early 2014 in support of their new EP.

NEUROTIC NOVEMBER have announced several pre-order packages for their upcoming debut album,Anunnaki, which will be available on October 29th. Barely out of high school, the outlandish five-piece have blown away their local music scene in Miami, FL and now have their sights set on world domination. Their untamed attitude and astonishing live performances make NEUROTIC NOVEMBER one of the most exciting up-and-coming metalcore acts around.

Of the title, vocalist Dee Dee explains, “The word ‘Anunnaki’ is from ancient Sumerian mythology and it loosely means ‘came from the stars’. There is no better way to explain our sound than to tell you that it is out of this world. We are aliens and revel in what makes us different.”

From another dimension NEUROTIC NOVEMBER have come to open your mind about the metalcore scene. Pre-order the Anunnaki package, complete with brand new t-shirts, gym shorts, sweatpants and more today; international shipping is available.
