Miss May I Puts On A Full-Scale Show At The Nile Theater
Miss May I, the metalcore band hailing from Troy, Ohio recently made a stop in Mesa, AZ at The Nile Theater for their Curse of Existence Tour. The jam-packed show rocked the walls of the theater as the band tours the states in celebration of their seventh album release ‘Curse of Existence’.
Miss May I‘s Levi Benton (vocals), B.J. Stead (lead guitar), Justin Aufdemkampe (guitar), Ryan Neff (bass/vocals), and Jerod Boyd (drums) were greeted by a full house of fans ready to bring the house down. The band feeds into the sound that echoed throughout the evening as Miss May I continues to be one of the few unique talents that manage to connect with the crowd during their shows.
Benton talks about Curse of Existence‘s message within the music, saying:
“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!”
Talking about the single ‘Free Fall‘, Benton added:
“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 is your anthem.”
The album was produced by Will Putney and brings together the sound of the five band members in what is described as “the sound of five people prying victory from the jaws of defeat. Unbroken by isolation, fearless in the face of fear, MISS MAY I wrestle with demons real and imagined all over the album.” Their single ‘Free Fall‘ is available now and you can check it out here.
