Miss May I salute our troops

Posted by on January 20, 2015

There’s been a lot of talk about the armed forces this past weekend, as Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper set records for a movie opening in January, and Michael Moore and Seth Rogen were criticized for tweets about the film. It might have been a coincidence, but today Billboard premiered the video for Miss May I’s “Hero With No Name.” The song, taken from the band’s Rise of the Lion album, is a tribute to America’s armed forces. The video features military members that were at the Rockstar Energy Drink mayhem Festival last Summer while the  band was on tour. The band’s Levi Benton told Billboard about the song:

We have met many soldiers, even overseas at our shows, that have told us amazing heroic stories of them on patrol. All of them have told us they listen to us every day on patrol and it helps the days go by faster and get them pumped up for any action. For someone to tell us that it takes our breath away, because we are sitting in green rooms and fancy buses while they are out risking their lives! The least we could do was give them an anthem and pay our respects.
