CLEVELAND, OH – Morning in May forms new line up and drops new single “Orpheus in Retrospect” with Craig Mabbitt guest feature.

Morning In May find themselves at the forefront of reinventing 2007’s emo.
Known for descriptive lyrics that bring their songs to life in a cinematic way, the band puts on theatrically driven performances. With tours including Warped Tour 18’ and others alongside names such as Hawthorne Heights, Underoath and August Burns Red. With consistent tour being prominent in the band’s career, they’ve managed to use their social media platforms as a way of staying connected with their fan base throughout the Covid-19 outbreak.
Early in 2020 Morning In May released a music video for “Everybody’s Innocent Here, Don’t You Know That?,” the leading single off of the band’s 6-track EP, Somewhere In Slumber. The song’s title refers to the movie, The Shawshank Redemption, as big fans the band shot their video at The Ohio State Reformatory, where the film had been made.
Without being able to tour in support of the EP since release on Feb. 21, MIM have channeled their creative energy elsewhere. The band released their teeth-gritty, breathy cover of Halsey’s “Without Me,” sitting up at over 19,000 streams on Spotify.
Morning In May continue to navigate their way through an unconventional year in music. With a line-up change, now including guitarist, Mike Dulay and bassist, Zack Orr (former Alteras.) Fans can expect to see and hear more from the trio as the year continues on.
