Miss May I’s Justin Aufdemkampe Finds Best Fit in Charvel

Justin Aufdemkampe Signature Pro-Mod SD24D

Miss May I stands at the summit of modern U.S. metalcore, and Charvel® is proud to honor the formidably fast, aggressive, and melodic fret work of Justin Aufdemkampe with a killer, all-new model bearing his name.

“I am very excited to have a signature model guitar that was developed with the guitar player in mind,” said Aufdemkampe. “To me, being a musician, it doesn’t get much better than that.”

“Originally, I had been switching around to other guitar companies, trying to find the best fit for myself,” he continued. “A buddy of mine convinced me to play a pair of Charvel guitars on Warped Tour a while back, and I was hooked.”

The Limited Edition Justin Aufdemkampe Signature Pro-Mod SD24 model features a classic San Dimas body fashioned from mahogany that is finished in a slick Trans Red with chrome hardware. The two-piece bolt-on caramelized maple “speed” neck has graphite reinforcement and silky-smooth hand-rubbed urethane finish. Its 12”-16” compound radius caramelized maple fingerboard features comfortable rolled edges, 24 jumbo frets and pearloid dot inlays, allowing you to slide around and scream out solos with optimum ease.

Ferocious tone bites from a special HS pickup configuration combining a Fender® Texas Special single-coil neck pickup with a Seymour Duncan® Distortion SH-6 bridge pickup.

Other premium modern features include a three-way rotary pickup switch, domed volume and tone control knobs, momentary kill switch, Charvel HT6 string-through-body hardtail bridge, and locking tuners.

“Charvel has the looks and the playability that make them great guitars, as well as the team that backs it,” summed up Aufdemkampe. “For me it was a no brainer, and I haven’t looked back since.”

Miss May I Releases Relentless Video for ‘Deathless’

Miss May I
Miss May I’s latest video for “Deathless” takes the band back to school.

The Ohio metallers perform the crushing track in a run-down classroom while several kids are chained to their desks by a strict teacher with only dreams of escape to keep them going.

The song comes off Miss May I’s recently released album of the same name, and its corresponding clip will definitely stay ingrained in your memory banks.

Check it out after the jump.  (more…)

Miss May I Drops Video for ‘I.H.E.’

Miss May I I.H.E.

Ohio metallers Miss May I went super heavy in both theme and music for their new video for the track “I.H.E.”

The clip focuses on a teenaged boy who is building a coffin with a harsh authority figure. As they drag it into the woods, the teen can’t take it anymore and turns on his abuser, tackling him and depositing the body in the previously empty coffin.

The intense visual is also complimented by Miss May I’s trademark brutal sound and skittish camera angles.

Currently on the Vans Warped Tour, Miss May I has an album entitled Deathless coming out Aug. 7, but in the meantime, check out the “I.H.E.” video after the jump. (more…)
