MISS MAY I and VANS WARPED TOUR Team Up to Release a New Track, ‘Day By Day’ – ‘At Heart’ Hits Stores NEXT TUESDAY, June 12th, with Rise Records
VANS WARPED TOUR Charity and Alternative Press Magazine Signings, BANDHAPPY Lessons, and More Announced!
MISS MAY I and the VANS WARPED TOUR have teamed up to bring you the new, exclusive track, ‘Day By Day’, cut from the band’s upcoming release, At Heart. Fans can listen to the track at the VANS WARPED TOUR official website. At Heart hits stores next Tuesday, June 12th with Rise Records!
The band is thrilled to meet their fans at several signings during their main stage run at VANS WARPED TOUR this year, including appearances at the Project143 booth, Alternative Press Magazine booth, and the MISS MAY I merch stand! When arriving at the festival, attendees will be given specific times for each individual signing as well as the band’s performance times (they are scheduled to change per date).
Additionally, MISS MAY I drummer Jerod Boyd and bassist Ryan Neff will be giving one-on-one daily music lessons at the official BANDHAPPY Music Lesson Tent. This is a great opportunity for fans to learn directly from the band members themselves! For more information on the tent, visit www.bandhappy.com/warpedtour.
At Heart, a pummelling album that Revolver Magazine describes as having “plenty of monster tracks, propulsive riffs, and searing breakdowns” (album review: May/June 2012), will hit stores on June 12, 2012, and was produced by famed record producer Machine (Lamb of God, Every Time I Die, Suicide Silence). 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.
MerchNOW is offering several MISS MAY I merchandise bundles. The first 1,000 fans to purchase a bundle that includes the At Heart CD O Card or pre-order the At Heart CD O Card non-bundle will receive an autographed copy of the At Heart CD O Card.
