Troy, Ohio melodic metal band MISS MAY I are set to kick off their upcoming tour with Whitechapel, After The Bruial, The Plot In You, and Structures on March 10th in Memphis, TN. The tour will travel through the United States until March 30th, taking a month long break while MISS MAY I heads to Europe to tour with Parkway Drive, The Ghost Inside, and Confession, and kicks back up again on May 3rd in Louisville, KY. The tour closes with two east coast shows, including the 2012 Bamboozle Festival in Asbury Park, NJ.

The band is preparing to announce new information about their upcoming album very soon. Stay tuned for new details coming within the next few weeks.

MISS MAY I was discovered by Rise Records through the direction of former manager Chris Rubey of The Devil Wears Prada in 2008. The band’s first album, Apologies Are for the Weak, reached #29 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. Their 2010 sophomore release, Monument, charted on the Billboard Top 200 and hit #10 on the U.S. Hard Rock chart. Churning out over 450 performances since 2009, the band is regarded as one of the hardest working young bands in the metal genre.

Update: MISS MAY I are pleased to announce the name and release date of their brand new full-length album. The new album, entitled At Heart, is being released with Rise Records and will hit stores on May 29th, 2012. At Heart was produced by famed record producer Machine (Lamb of God, Every Time I Die, Suicide Silence) this past winter at Machine Shop in Belleville, New Jersey.

Fans can view a special video announcement featuring MISS MAY I vocalist Levi Benton at the band’s official YouTube page now. “We are so stoked for everyone to hear this new record. It is the best thing we’ve ever recorded from beginning to end,” states Levi. “We decided to name the album At Heart because this is the first thing we have ever created from the heart. Everything is exactly what we have always wanted to say and we didn’t hold back. No gimmicks or computers. Just five guys thrashing their hearts out.”

“The individual member’s performances on this record are fantastic!  This is why I say, MISS MAY I has arrived as a BAND.  A real fucking band,” adds At Heart producer Machine. “We have created an unstoppable, pure, metal, freight train of a record. My instincts tell me that when people hear it, it will be infectiously unstoppable. There’s more feel and power musically, lyrically, than I have heard from the band before. It is a pleasure for me to work with such a young band who knows who they are and are not afraid to focus on the big picture.”
