MUSIC VIDEO: Miss May I – “You Want Me”

About two weeks ago Miss May I unleashed a lyric video for their single “You Want Me.” The video had plenty of elements that would almost qualify it to be a music video, and now we know why. If you can recall, the lyric video contained shots of two boxers dueling it out. The music video released today is that video, except it has more action and is in black and white. They premiered the video through Affliction Clothing, and you can also watch it below.

Miss May I Confirm A Fan Passed Away At Their Show This Weekend

When you go to a metal concert there is always the possibility of someone getting hurt. Moshing, crowdsurfing, stage diving: all of those things are dangerous. When you get a whole bunch of energized fans doing all of these things it can create a potentially dangerous situation. We hate to hear of anyone getting injured, and even worse, dying at a show. Unfortunately for one young man’s family, the latter has just become a reality.

Alterto Scott, an attendee to Miss May I‘s show in New York this past Saturday, lost his life after an unknown injury took place. …
