about

Self proclaimed "High-Fashion Nightmare" May May Graves brings her world of horror to life through her debut EP "Monsters". Combined with the industrial strength of Angelspit's Zoog Von Rock, "Monsters" is the first peek under the bed into a world of punk-rock slashers, murderous sirens, and seductive spirits.

​Billed as the "genderfuck of your nightmares", May May quit her job as a Church of Christ preacher in 2011 to be in a punk band... It all goes downhill from there. Her dark, macabre, and campy fetish themed performances have captivated and terrorized audiences across the country.


bleed your ears with 6 tracks injected with harsh stomping beats, grinding bass and lyrical terror! (plus 4 TERRIFYING remixes!)

"Lights out baby, the night is ours!"

Track Name: Die Like It's the 80's
Die Like it’s the 80’s
[EXPLICIT LYRICS]
T = 148.738BPM

“We Belong Dead!”

Run, Run, Run
as fast as you can
there’s a party on the 13th
cancel your plans
1 for the riot grrls
2 for the tramps
3 for the bitches at
SLEEPAWAY CAMP

(We belong, we belong, we belong, dead! dead! dead!)

Punk Rock!
Survive the Night
Had to steal your mom’s best
kitchen knife
corn maze party for the
filthy teens
gutting dirty pumpkins for
HALLOWEEN

(We belong, we belong, we belong, dead! dead! dead!)

Get Bent!
Get Bent!
Let’s feed the monster BABY!
Get Bent!
Get Bent!
Let’s Die like it’s the 80’s!
x2

(FUCK!)
I look good tonight!
The boogieman’s TRASHED
Looking for a FIGHT!
Slumber party pillow fights
blackened eyes
you can see him hiding if you
pause it just right!

(We belong, we belong, we belong, dead! dead! dead!)

Let’s have a bonfire
central casting models
strung up high!
it’s just like my senior prom
what a perfect night for some
RED RUM

(We belong, we belong, we belong, dead! dead! dead!)

Get Bent!
Get Bent!

Get Bent!
Get Bent!
Let’s feed the monster BABY!
Get Bent!
Get Bent!
Let’s Die like it’s the 80’s!

The blind leading the beautiful
the after party’s gonna be a funeral!
x4

Get Bent!
Get Bent!

Get Bent!
Get Bent!
Let’s feed the monster BABY!
Get Bent!
Get Bent!
Let’s Die like its the 80’s!

“I always come back, but dying is such a BITCH!”

Monsters
[EXPLICIT LYRICS]
T= 136 BPM

The city is alive
but I’m dead!
There’s a Monster under my bed, he’s screaming
aaaaaah!

T-R-I-C-K-O-R-T-R-E-A-T
Trick or Treat

Spooky clown trash like a
candy corn fashion whore
fucks like an old cadaver
just because she’s bored
fishnets trauma porn
murder, boys, sex, gore
call up the babysitter
meet her at the door

Calling all creeps for the dead revolution
lights out baby cause the night is ours
Calling all creeps for the dead revolution
Lights out! Lights out!

The city is alive
but I’m dead
There’s a Monster under my bed, he’s screaming
aaaaah!
But I’m dead
But I’m dead
But I’m-

T-R-I-C-K-O-R-T-R-E-A-T
Trick or Treat

Costume shoppe glamour for the
midnight debauchery
bats run the party cause they
keep it so lit
killer queens! slasher kings!
punk fucking Halloween
popcorn horror on that
chainsaw shit

Calling all creeps for the dead revolution
lights out baby cause the night is ours
Calling all creeps for the dead revolution
Lights out! Lights out!

The city is alive
but I’m dead
There’s a Monster under my bed, he’s screaming
aaaaah!
But I’m dead
But I’m dead
But I’m-

Video massacre Saturday night!
Be kind rewind!
Dead girls do it better Saturday night!
Be kind rewind!
Video massacre Saturday night!
Be kind rewind!
Dead girls do it better Saturday night!
Be kind rewind!

Ahhhhhhh!

Lights out!
Lights out!

The city is alive! alive! alive!
but I’m dead
There’s a Monster under my bed, I’m SCREAMING!
aaaaaaaaaaah!!
But I’m dead!
But I’m dead!
But I’m-

Track Name: Ghost
Ghosts
[NON EXPLICIT LYRICS]
T= 100.623 BPM

“Call My Name!”

We pledge allegiance
to voodoo
Kawaii whispers
and head wounds

the Ghost is coming
with her friends
with wire hangers
I’m seeing red

Call my name!

I am the Ghost,
You are the shell
just one final kiss
before we go to hell

Black Mass and chocolate cake
Dance Naked
Cherry blade, kiss my face
get wicked

This place is haunted
turn me on
the walls are talking
my Ju-On

I think I’ve lost it
Am I dead?
Your neck is pretty
Let’s go to bed

Dolls in a pentagram
Call my name!

I am the Ghost,
You are the shell
just one final kiss
before we go to hell
x2

Track Name: My Villain
My Villain
[EXPLICIT LYRICS]
T= 125 BPM

Hey, would you like to go out
In Style?
I notice you haven’t been out
for a while
The crowd is much different than you
remember
let’s try not to fuck it all up
like last september

I’m born in blood
(my villain)
I’m hiding my heart under the floorboard
I’m dead by morning
(my villain)
I’ve murdered you and me

I once fell in love, fell too hard
that I died
He fooled me just wanted to see
my insides
I woke up to find it was all
a nightmare
I brought you this knife and I figured
we could share.

I’m born in blood
(my villain)
I’m hiding my heart under the floorboard
I’m dead by morning
(my villain)
I’ve murdered you and me
x2

you’re bad at apologies, “this wouldn’t hurt”
you look so pathetic with blood on your shirt
the body-count rises, I don’t know how
to stop or to slow down now

I’m born in blood
(my villain)
I’m hiding my heart under the floorboard
I’m dead by morning
(my villain)
I’ve murdered you and me
x2

I once fell in love, fell too hard, that I died.
I once fell in love, fell too hard, that I died.
I once fell in love, fell too hard, that I died.

Track Name: Mermaids
Mermaids
[NON EXPLICIT LYRICS]
T= 125.82 BPM

“Come with us”

Black butterfly
Give me a dying wish
Teach me how to kill
Dancing fire
Blood on the broken glass
Take me to your hell

Black butterfly
Help me tie the noose
Keep the beast at bay
Tempest traps
Descend into the black
And meet me in the gray

It hurts, it hurts
I am the manta ray
I watch you wash away

Dusk to Dawn
The ocean calls
Moonlight shines on a fine cadaver
My friends taste better
When they’re afraid
Now they’re gone and it’s just
Me and the mermaids
Me and the mermaids

Now she’s growing weak
Follow the voices and
You’ll find her in the deep
Blue toy boats a-rock me
Hold her down
Where she is free

I step off and fall
From the mainsail
when the moon is high
All alone I’ll find you
Because our love will never die.

It hurts, it hurts
I am the manta ray
I watch you wash away

Dusk to Dawn
The ocean calls
Moonlight shines on a fine cadaver
My friends taste better
When they’re afraid
Now they’re gone and it’s just
Me and the mermaids
Me and the Mermaids

Come with us x4

It hurts, it hurts
I am the manta ray
I watch you wash away

Dusk to Dawn
The ocean calls
Moonlight shines on a fine cadaver
My friends taste better
When they’re afraid
Now they’re gone and it’s just
Me and the mermaids
Me and the mermaids
x2
