The official video for "Shadows Inside", the title track of the new album from MISS MAY I, can be seen below. Due on June 2 via SharpTone Records, the disc was co-produced by Drew Fulk (MOTIONLESS IN WHITE, EMMURE, CROWN THE EMPIRE) and Nick Sampson (ASKING ALEXANDRIA, BORN OF OSIRIS). Andrew Wade (A DAY TO REMEMBER, THE WORD ALIVE, NECK DEEP) handled all mixing duties.
MISS MAY I vocalist Levi Benton stated: "Not only does this song open up our new record, it also sets the tone for the record.
"This album is all about changes throughout life, good and bad. It's about the past that lives within everyone; their 'Shadows Inside'. The lyrics talk about how great new things can give light to your past and put you in a better place."
Sharing some details about the creation of the music video for "Shadows Inside", Levi added: "We have quite a few videos and we're always trying to change things up. With this video for 'Shadows Inside', we not only wanted to recreate the cover of the record in real life, but we also wanted the performance to be abstract. We had black lights and used old lens effects from the '90s to achieve a very classic look and something totally different for us."
According to a press release, "Shadows Inside" "doubles as monster riff-fest and forcefully vocal driven statement shaped by changes both within and without. Make no mistake, this isn't an about-face album full of contrived sentiment or glossy emptiness. It's a record where the band challenged each other to work from outside of their comfort zone, to really hone in on what makes MISS MAY I vital, and deliver something fully authentic and raw."
MISS MAY I has begun a six-week North American headlining tour. The Canadian dates will feature support from OBEY THE BRAVE and AURAS, with UPON A BURNING BODY, KUBLAI KHAN and CURRENTS joining them in the U.S.
