"The Up Close and Personal Tour was a great opportunity for us to meet all of our fans and really connect with the crowd," states vocalist Levi Benton. "On top of that we got to play our biggest show yet in our hometown state Ohio at Rock On The Range in front of thousands. Right now we are getting our summer shirts on and cutting off the sleeves for a hot and sweaty Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival!"

After the resounding underground success of their debut full-length release Monument, MISS MAY I took a step beyond the metalcore world they had grown up in with the release of their album At Heart 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 'Hey Mister' and 'Day By Day'. Entering the Billboard Top 200 charts in its first week at #32, At Heart saw the band embrace a more mainstream metal approach to their music. During their 2012 Vans Warped Tour main stage onslaught, the At Heart campaign made massive leaps, seeing MISS MAY I nominated for 'Best New Talent' 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 of Five Finger Death Punch, Killswitch Engage and Bullet For My Valentine.
