Miss May I has yet again made Fridays super heavy by releasing a new song and music video into the world. Titled “Shadows Inside”, the track is off the band’s upcoming album of the same name.

The video begins with a close-up of a mask – the same one that’s pictured as part of the album art on Shadows Inside. Quickly after, the song goes into a frenzy of jump cuts and rabid transitions. Lead singer Levi Benton is seen and heard screaming his lungs directly into camera against a darkened background. The video goes from color to black and white on several occasions, which adds to the fast-paced nature of the song. Close-ups are the favored choice of the director.

Lead vocalist Levi Benton had this to say about the new track: Not only does this song open up our new record, it also sets the tone for the record. This album is all about changes throughout life, good and bad. It’s about the past that lives within everyone; their ‘Shadows Inside.’ The lyrics talk about how great new things can give light to your past and put you in a better place.

Furthermore, Benton explains the look and feel for the new music video for “Shadows Inside”: We have quite a few videos and we’re always trying to change things up. With this video for ‘Shadows Inside’ we not only wanted to recreate the cover of the record in real life, but we also wanted the performance to be abstract. We had black lights and used old lens effects from the ’90s to achieve a very classic look and something totally different for us.

Shadows Inside marks the group’s sixth full-length album. The album comes out June 2nd via SharpTone Records. To pre-order the album, click here!
