Miss May I is an American metalcore band from Troy, Ohio. Formed in 2006, they signed to Rise Records in 2008 and released their debut album, Apologies Are for the Weak through the label while the members were still attending high school. The album reached 76 on the Billboard 200, No. 29 on Billboard‘s Top Heatseekers, and No. 66 on Top Independent Albums. The band has also had some of their material featured in big name productions; the song “Forgive and Forget” is featured on the Saw VI Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, and their song “Apologies Are for the Weak” is included in the video game Saints Row: The Third.
After finishing up touring for 2011, Miss May I entered the studio throughout the beginning of 2012 to work on a new album set for release sometime during the summer. On March 8th, 2012, the band announced that they had completed work on their new album titled At Heart and were set to release the album on May 29th 2012.
To make last minute changes (as said in an interview by Levi Benton), the band bumped back the release, to June 12th, 2012.
The band soon set out on tour with Whitechapel, After the Burial, The Plot in You, and Structures throughout March 2012, followed by a European tour with Parkway Drive, The Ghost Inside and Confession through April. The band also set out to tour with Whitechapel, The Ghost Inside, Within the Ruins and The Plot in You in the US during May 2012. Miss May I released (Hey Mister) on May 3rd on Rise Record’s YouTube page. The band played on Warped Tour in the summer of 2012, and headlined the AP Tour in the fall. The band supported Bullet For My Valentine on their March 2013 UK tour alongside Halestorm.
