March 10 — Metalcore band Miss May I debuted its new single, ‘Unconquered’ and its video Wednesday.
The single and its video are the first from the band in five years. The song’s musical arrangement is pure metalcore and will appeal to the band’s established fan base, as well as that of Wage War, and Miss May I’s label mate, We Came As Romans.
The song’s lyrical theme addresses the emotional and mental struggles that everyone battled because of the pandemic, said front man Levi Benton.
“We as well as everyone else went through the ringer the last couple of years,” said Benton. “Some of us worse than others and even more of us finding ourselves in the darkest places we never thought we’d end up. After that experience and making it out – it felt as if a battle had been won. That’s what ‘Unconquered’ is all about.”
The video for ‘Unconquered’ finds the band performing its new single on what looks like another world, perhaps another planet. The visualization is meant to help illustrate the sense of being in another world throughout the course of the pandemic. Meanwhile an unidentified man battles what seems like addiction to pills, alcohol and smoking. The song plays over the video as it progresses.
In other news, Miss May I is serving as support for All That Remains’ new headlining tour, which launched Saturday.
