Finnish modern-melodic-metallers AS I MAY have signed with the new German label Uprising Records, for a release of their 3rd album “Karu“, which is set to be released in November 2021.
Uprising Records is a sub-division of the Danish label Target, which also houses sub-labels, such as Emanzipation, From The Vaults and Mighty Music.
Since 2019’s critically acclaimed album “My Own Creations“, AS I MAY have been composing a somewhat more modern, and basic album. Hard hitting, with loads of nerve and punch, but with an emphasis on the grand choruses.
AS I MAY have been long-time confirmed as support act of Semblant, for a European tour that has been postponed a few times, due to the Covid-19 virus and lock-down. The tour is now set for the following dates:

Hailing from the land of the thousand lakes, AS I MAY are taking their inspiration in modern metal, but keeping the eye on good melodies, great choruses and at the same time incorporating both clean and screaming vocals, they presented an amazingly well-written bunch of songs on their last album “My Own Creations” – a recipe, they intend to keep, coz who’d change a winning team?
