Hero With No Name

Album: Rise of the Lion (2014)
  • This song finds Miss May I paying tribute to the American military. Frontman Levi Benton told Billboard magazine: "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 that 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."
