Modern metal frontrunners MISS MAY I will release their ground-breaking new full-length album, Rise Of The Lion, in North America on April 29, 2014 via Rise Records (April 28 in the UK, April 25 in Australia). In advance of its release, the band have just released an exclusive track by track guide to the record, featuring snippets of each song and frontman Levi Benton and bassist/backing vocalist Ryan Neff talking through each track. This can be viewed at www.MMIRiseOfTheLion.com now! Stay tuned for more exclusive material coming soon.
Rise Of The Lion is MISS MAY I’s fourth album and the first to be produced by the legendary Terry Date (Pantera, Deftones, White Zombie, Bring Me The Horizon). The countless fan letters the band has received over the years are the inspiration for the tracks on Rise Of The Lion, and each track is written from the perspective of those fans or responses to them.

You can also pre-order Rise Of The Lion in digital, physical CD, and vinyl versions, as well as special pre-order packages including exclusive Rise Of The Lion shirts, necklaces, posters, and more!
