With the release of their sixth full-length studio album, 'Shadows Inside', less than a month away, we have a new video from Metalcore heavy hitters Miss May I premiering today here on MetalTalk.

'Shadows Inside' will be released on June 2nd via SharpTone. The band were asked to recommend a book, movie, album and place to visit to their fans and this is what they came up with.

The new album is the follow-up to Miss May I's critically acclaimed efforts 'Deathless' and 'Rise Of The Lion', which debuted at #5 & #6 on the Billboard Rock Charts, respectively.

The band recently unleashed the video for the album's title track which you can see here.

Speaking about the title track for 'Shadows Inside', Miss May I lead vocalist Levi Benton told us:

"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.

"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 90's to achieve a very classic look and something totally different for us."

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
