Miss May I

Miss May I is a melodic hardcore band from Troy, Ohio. After just beginning their tour with Carnifex, Impending Doom and Conducting From the Grave, Miss May I’s then bassist, Josh Gillispie, made the decision to leave the band. According to Gillispie touring just wasn’t for him, and he knew that with the debut album being put out touring was going to be an essential. Ryan Neff rejoined the band after his short lived position in Rose Funeral. According to Ryan, touring with Rose Funeral made him “not want to play music anymore,” and was more than thrilled to return to Miss May I. Gillispie has since joined another band called The Paramedic.

The bands’ debut album “Apologies Are for the Weak”, reached #29 on Billboard’s Top Heatseekers, and #66 on Top Independent Albums. On December 6, 2008, the band announced that they had been signed to Rise Records. They recently got off of the Shred ’til Your Dead tour with Attack Attack!, I Set My Friends on Fire, Our Last Night, and The Color Morale. Their song, “Forgive and Forget”, is featured on the Saw VI Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. The music video for the song premiered on Headbangers Ball on November 21, 2009.
