48May is a New Zealand pop rock group. The band consists of Jon Austin (vocals, guitar), CaptainHook (guitar, vocals), Stan Bicknell (drums, vocals) and Shannon Brown (bass, vocals). Hook and Jon went to Hamilton Boys' High School together, where Jon was head boy, and have been writing music together for years, while Shannon Brown is well known on the New Zealand music circuit for his roles in bands such as Tadpole.

The name "48May" came from their residence during university; at 48 May Street in Hamilton. They have achieved success within New Zealand including a place on the New Zealand leg of the 2005 Big Day Out and Edgefest05 tour, their first record (The Mad Love) going "Gold" in NZ, and their second record (Streetlights and Shadows) being released in Japan by Triple Vision followed by 48May touring through Japan with "Four Year Strong" and "Every Avenue" in support of the release. They have also performed as support act for Alien Ant Farm, Simple Plan, Panic! at the Disco, and Steriogram, amongst others.

48May have since split due to all members going their separate ways. Jon is now interning at DDB advertising in Auckland, CaptainHook is Head Engineer at York Street Studio in Auckland, Stan is living in Melbourne, and Shannon is working the covers circuit from Hamilton.
