In a recent interview with Alternative Press, Miss May I vocalist Levi Benton (at left) tells a horrific tale of losing his home because of some bad moves by the former business manager for the band.
“I was the first person in my family to really buy a house. I was really excited. Miss May I’s former business manager made some paperwork mistakes, so the bank sold the house out from under us. It was a nightmare. I lost everything, including three years of savings. I bought the house in 2012 and it turned out the bank was missing a form from 2010. On paper, it looked like Miss May I didn’t exist. We were in the studio making Rise Of The Lion and I was calling lawyers trying to fix it. I tried to at least get my money back and that fell through. All of my money was gone. It was like being in high school again.”
Rise of the Lion came out in early 2014, to this happened sometime in 2013. That business manager has since been fired and replaced, and in the years since Miss May I has played the 2014 Mayhem Festival, played this year’s Warped Tour, and released another studio album, Deathless earlier this month on Rise Records. The band releases a music video for the title track back in July.
