In 2009, a massive surge of energy was felt around the world. That surge was Miss May I’s debut album “Apologies Are For The Weak”. Since then, that energy has been ever-present. Miss May I are a household name in the metal world; a band that has always been relentless in terms of touring and putting out new and exciting material. It turns out that the only thing that could have slowed them down was a pandemic.
It should come as no surprise then, that as soon as lockdowns were lifted, the group jumped straight back into touring with two years worth of energy ready to be let out. Currently on a huge US tour supporting the legendary All That Remains, the band has given everyone an aggressive reminder of why they’re also one of the juggernauts of metalcore.
US fans may be lucky right now to get a tour, but the rest of the world hasn’t been deprived of Miss May I, either. Their first song in 5 years, “Unconquered” was dropped recently, and it’s an energetic and beautiful return to form that so many listeners have missed. It’s a fitting anthem for the world as we crawl out of lockdowns and everything else.
After about a week of broken down buses, weak reception and navigating time zone differences, Sonic Perspectives writer Josh Muncke and Miss May I vocalist Levi Benton seized the perfect moment to sit down and chat about everything including being back on the road touring, nebulizers, Australian animals, The Weeknd, and of course the new album that is ever so slightly visible on the horizon.
