After the resounding underground success of their debut full-length releaseÂ Monument,Â MISS MAY IÂ took a step beyond the metalcore world they had grown up in with the release of their albumÂ At HeartÂ in 2012. The record, produced by renowned record producer Machine (Lamb Of God), proved to be one of the strongest and most surprising metal records of the last few years, spawning huge singles in the songs â€˜Hey Misterâ€™ and â€˜Day By Dayâ€™.
Entering the Billboard Top 200 charts in its first week at #32,Â At HeartÂ saw the band embrace a more mainstream metal approach to their music. During their 2012 Vans Warped Tour main stage onslaught, theÂ At HeartÂ campaign made massive leaps, seeingÂ MISS MAY IÂ nominated for â€˜Best New Talentâ€™ award at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards, as well as headlining the Alternative Press 2012 Tour, and picking up support at Active Rock Radio for the first time. On the live side, the band was hand-picked for tours with the likes ofÂ Five Finger Death Punch,Â Killswitch EngageÂ andÂ Bullet For My Valentine.
