In a statement on their official Facebook page, Miss May I have responded to the death of Alberto Scott, who collapsed after a show by the band in New York. The band members, who are "deeply shocked and saddened" by the news, have urged fans to donate to Scott's funeral costs:

"As many of you will have heard, Alberto Scott, a Miss May I fan in attendance at our Webster Hall show on Saturday night tragically died. We were deeply shocked and saddened to hear this news. We are awaiting a full report from the New York Police Department. In the meantime, we'd ask that all your thoughts and prayers be with his family. We have been made aware of a webpage that is raising funds to help pay for his funeral costs. We will be making a contribution and we'd strongly urge others to do so."

While it was initially reported that Scott had died after stage-diving at the show, it is has since been revealed that he collapsed after exiting the venue.

    The downvotes make no sense. That avatar of 8stringterror's is so damn hilarious.On a serious note, utterly grim news. Never heard Miss May I but a death is a death. RBDIF (Rest Balls Deep In Fanny) young squire.
    I wonder how Daily Mail will take this..
    Rock music kills young fan with non-reactionary beats. Brown people, immigrants, socialists and paedophiles held responsible.
    RIP. On a side note, always tough those kind of pits were pretty stupid. People over do it. Its suppose to be fun, not try to bash the person next to you to the ground with your mighty arm.
