Miss May I Premiere “Lost In The Grey” Music Video

Miss May I have premiered a new video for their new song “Lost In The Grey,” via Loudwire. This song is from the band’s new album “Shadows Inside,” which will be released on June 2.

Levi Benton commented:

“Our new video for ‘Lost In The Grey‘ was by far the most extreme video we have ever done! The shoot involved an entire forest landscape set, live action volatile weather elements and rodents in mouths. We have never had a video like this before. The vibe for the song is really captured well and sets a great image not only for the song, but the record as a whole. Shadows Inside is the most honest record we have ever created and a big part of that was just having the freedom and time to put everything we had into it.

This is a great first track to release to the mass 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.”

Miss May I’s Bj Stead Loses Personal Items Including Music Files & Equipment In Robbery

Miss May I guitarist Bj Stead’s home was broken into, while on tour, and thieves stole many of his personal items, including computer equipment, hard drives containing his music projects, video game consoles, etc. If you want to help him out, you can donate to his Gofundme campaign.

Stead said the following:

“Hello everyone, I hope this post finds you well. My name is Bj Stead, and I am the lead guitar player of the Ohio metal band Miss May I. Recently, on April 27th 2016, I was robbed of thousands of dollars worth of my personal belongings, all of which are necessary to make what I do for a living possible.

The most important thing lost, aside from personal belongings such as video game consoles, toiletries and necessities, was my MacBook Pro, as well as all of my recording equipment, and multiple external hard drives with projects I have been working on for months, as we will be going back to the studio to start the writing process for a new album in the next few months.

As we all know, the music industry is an extremely unforgiving business, especially for artists, but at the same time I very much love what I do, writing and recording music, being on the road, and playing for fans all over the world.

The money earned will be used for replacing my stolen MacBook Pro, my recording equipment, as well as all of the lost hardware and software that went along with it, so I can get back to doing what I’ve been doing for years, which is creating music for the greatest family in metal music, which is my Miss May I family.

Any donation helps, wether it’s a penny, or a dollar! I can’t express how grateful I am for doing what I do, and having some of the best, most supportive fans in the world, and I won’t let one selfish theif ever take that from me. Thank you all so much for your time, and as always, stay metal!

Bj Stead“

Levi Benton also commented on the situation, and said that the recording rig with all the band’s songs on it was also stolen:

Miss May I Involved In A Second Crash On Their Current Tour

Miss May I were involved in another van crash, while on their current tour with Blessthefall. The band members are all okay, but they will be missing their Albuquerque, NM show.

The band posted the following statement:

“Hey everyone, some of you may have heard that, for the second time on this tour, we were involved in a crash on the freeway. The good news is that save for a few scrapes and bruises, everyone is OK and we even managed to make it to last night’s show. However, we will be spending today waiting for our van to be fixed up, so we will not be able to make the show this evening in Albuquerque, NM. We will still make our show in St Louis, MO tomorrow however. Albuquerque, we will be back on May 7th with our friends in Memphis May Fire, We Came As Romans and For Today. We’re sorry to everyone that was coming out tonight, hopefully we can see you then! Stay Metal and stay safe!”
