As I May - Traitor


What's New:

Finland's As I May​ are revealing another killer tune with a video clip a few days before their European tour with the Brazilians of Semblant (dates listed below).
Hard-hitting guitar riffs and pop-hit vocal melody grace "Traitor" is a song with a hook so big that it will haunt you for days. "Traitor" is an evolutionary track for As I May. The soundscape is different than their previous songs, as it emphasizes more on vocal power and synths. The guitars have a different place than before and are paired well with bass and drums. This song carves As I May's new sound to come on future releases.
Directed by Kimmo Pulliainen, the music video for "Traitor" was shot at As I May's rehearsal place, which is an old military bomb shelter. The band's concept was to have cyberpunk feeling to compliment the use of synth on the single. Starring in the video as the character of "Milana" is band friend Leevis along with all the light work and atmosphere planned by the band's own light engineer Mikko Harju.

​AS I MAY is creating fresh melodic metalcore that stands out from the scene with creativity, authenticity, and first of all emotionality. The band was formed in 2016 in Mikkeli, Finland. Their first album My Own Creations was released in 2019 (Rockshots Records, Spiritual Beast "Japan"). The album has been streamed well over a million times. European Tour and Big Festivals were booked after the album. When Covid came, the band used the time well to write their sophomore album "Karu'' released on Target Music Group'. The band's new 2022 single "Traitor" was produced, mixed, and mastered by Rami Nykänen. It's a preview to their third album with him to be released in 2023. Last year, AS I MAY performed at one of the biggest festivals in Finland, "Kuopio-Rock". For July 2022, As I May will join SEMBLANT's first European tour along with festivals in Europe.
