More on Miss May I

Last week, August Burns Red announced the majority of the lineup for their first-ever holiday festival featuring Miss May ICurrents and more.

Last week, the band announced that the festival was taking place in Lancaster, PA on December 21.

The band will be celebrating the 10-year anniversary of Constellations one more time at the Christmas Burns Red.

Now, they’ve announced most of the lineup with a very special guest still yet to be announced. Along with August Burns Red, Miss May I, Like Moths To Flames, Currents, Hawk and Wither Away will perform at the show.

“ABR’s hometown Christmas show has been an annual tradition since 2006 and it’s one that we look forward to every year,” the band said in a statement. “This year we decided to take it to a bigger stage and invite a bunch of our friends to join us. With the help of CI Productions, we look forward to making the Christmas Burns Red festival our new tradition. We can’t wait to play the full Constellations set in our hometown one last time and are excited to dig deep into our collection of holiday tunes.”

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
