Miss May I Premiere New Song “Free Fall”

Miss May I have premiered a new song titled “Free Fall.” This track is from the band’s new album “Curse Of Existence,” which will be released on September 2. Levi Benton commented:

“This song ‘Free Fall’ is our open invitation to anyone who wants to take that leap they never had the courage to take. When you reach the edge of a journey you have struggled to travel through and you back out before the final step, this is your chance to take that leap off the edge and see where the journey takes you. I know the popular term for this is ‘imposter syndrome’ and for anyone who has felt the relief of pushing through, this song is your anthem.”

Miss May I Premiere New Song “Earth Shaker”

Miss May I have premiered a new song titled “Earth Shaker.” This track is from the band’s new album “Curse Of Existence,” which will be released on September 2. Frontman Levi Benton commented:

“‘Earth Shaker‘ is our self description on the ones who are motivated to get themselves out of the ‘mayhem’ they are experiencing. Everyone out there has reached the breaking point where enough is enough and the time comes to make a change. Sometimes that change can make ripples in your life and redirect you to a new path, but its still forward and that’s what matters. Even when it feels like there is no where to go you can become an ‘Earth Shaker‘ and make your own quake in your life.”

Miss May I Premiere “Bleed Together” Video

Miss May I have premiered a new video for their new song “Bleed Together.” This track is from the band’s new album “Curse Of Existence,” which will be released on September 2.

Levi Benton said the following about the song:

“‘Bleed Together’ describes the connection a parent has with their child and the lengths they are willing to go to be there for them. It is a natural instinct for a parent to want to guard their child and for some that still seems to be something that was missing in their life. This song is from my perspective and an emotional follow up to our song ‘Hey Mister’ which describes the lack of a father figure around in one’s life.”

He also added the following about the album:

“‘Curse Of Existence’ is exactly what it reads, the curse we have in our existence. This doesn’t mean anything strictly negative, but it covers all existence that is the good and the bad, the highs and the lows, the sorrow and the joy. Everything that comes with life comes with a lesson and a price and that is what we have put into this new album. It tells our lessons over our lives that have shaped us and have brought us to the very bottom of our lowest low and the tallest point to our highest high. We know the reflection we all went through during the world coming to a halt and that experience brought a lot of these sheltered emotions to light!”
