A year after breaking out into the scene, Miss May I have returned with their sophomore effort "Monument". Delving deeper into the source of anguish that fueled "Apologies Are For the Weak" (selling well over 25,000 records in 1 year), Miss May I present an even more eclectic side to the organized chaos they have earned a reputation for. Borrowing from a wider range of genres, the new album touches upon parts of thrash merged with melody and metalcore goodness. The intensity on Monument is unmatched by any metal release this year and all that emotion was unhinged live this summer on the "Back To Your Roots Tour" as the band direct supports for The Devil Wears Prada on their full US tour doing sold out days in most major markets. Signed to Rise Records, these young guns are quickly becoming the next big thing in metal, also having performed on the Vans Warped Tour 2011.
