Miss May I Enter The Studio, Announce US Tour With Five Finger Death Punch

A bit of stateside metal news to begin the week this week; Ohio metal outfit Miss May I, who recently finished a tour with Killswitch Engage have announced that next week they will head into the recording studio to begin work on their fourth album. The legendary Colin Richardson, who has mixed and mastered numerous legendary metal albums is taking on Miss May I's new album as his latest project and will once again be behind the mixing desk. The album is scheduled tentatively for a Spring 2014 release through Rise Records.

Miss May I bassist Ryan Naff had this to say about heading back into the studio for their next album:

“Miss May I has been a wild ride for all of us since the beginning. From starting out in a basement in a small Ohio town, listening to our favorite bands, and just trying to play shows, all the way up to now, about to record our fourth full length album. As a long time fan, I am ecstatic to announce that we will be working with Terry Date on our next record. Growing up jamming Deftones, White Zombie, and Pantera, it's a dream come true to be working with the man who helped capture some of their greatest work. As if that wasn't amazing enough, we have Colin Richardson in to mix the record who is also a legend in the metal world. So you can all expect some heavy riffage coming your way next year!”

Miss May I will be taking a break from that time in the studio to embark on another huge US tour as main support for Five Finger Death Punch on their "Wrong Side Of Heaven" tour, the dates of which can be found below:

Nik works in music PR, he wanted to be famous but genetics determined a managerial route instead. He put his energy into working out how to design stuff, build web stuff and string a decent series of words together. He is a big fan of original and unique sounding bands, loving a good melody and anthem - although he has been known to listen to 90s glam rock in private.
