Great News! Yesterday Metalcore Trash Icons Miss May I were announced as one of the international headliners for September 2018’s Krank’d Up Festival (which is going down at Sundowners in Alberton, Gauteng).
This Ohio-based band are certified veterans. They’ve been in the game for ten years and they are stronger than ever. As a band of close friends since high school who took all the great advantages of the MySpace days, they’ve been able to grow into an explosive metal band that always pushes their own boundaries and are hell-bent on challenging the metal status quo.
Now signed to Sharptone Records, the band’s latest album, Shadows Inside is a boundary-crushing tour de force combining modern metalcore with melodic death and thrash elements. Metal Hammer calls it “An epic declaration of rising from the flames and striding headfirst into a new era.”
If you’re not familiar with Miss May I‘s music, crank up their song “Shadows Inside” below:
