Memphis May Fire
Memphis May Fire
MEMPHIS MAY FIRE have consistently pushed the envelope to redefine both themselves and the various sub-genres they've made their mark within. 2009's "Sleepwalking" full-length yielded no exception as the band ventured into the territory of Post-Hardcore / Southern Rock with no reservations. Their fresh approach to an otherwise stale scene gathered critical acclaim and found "Ghost In The Mirror" f...eatured on the both the Saw VI Soundtrack and DVD/Blu-Ray releases. Subsequent touring with the likes of Asking Alexandria, From First To Last, and Alesana facilitated the delivery of their music to the masses and established a live precedent that the band continues to build on today.

Following well-received releases on both Trustkill & Bullet Tooth, domestic/international touring success (featuring the band's first visit to Japan) and a tag as one of Revolver Magazine's "Top 25 Under 25," we're left with only one certainty; members Matt Mullins (vocals), Kellen McGregor (guitar), Ryan Bentley (guitar), Cory Elder (bass), and Jake Garland (drums) are headed somewhere fast.

In fact, it's safe to say that MEMPHIS MAY FIRE are "Sleepwalking" no longer. Their latest effort, "Between The Lies," boasts an elevated aggression that tastefully combines elements of melodic metal, southern rock, and electronics amidst a platform of carefully crafted songwriting. Existing solely in the digital realm, this EP is clearly an indication of things to come in terms of its unique dynamics & cross-genre experimentation.

Fast forward to 2011 and MEMPHIS MAY FIRE have now partnered with Rise Records as an outlet for their musical creativity. This move continues to broaden the band's reach and welcomes a new world of possibilities within the scope of their burgeoning career. MMF's high-octane live show acts as a testament to their ever-increasing identity and always leaves the audience wanting more. Expect their RISE debut to enter your lives later this spring alongside a massive touring cycle that is sure to reach your doorstep. Critics beware; MEMPHIS MAY FIRE are not only here to stay, they're paving the way.

A leading force in the metalcore genre, Arizona quintet blessthefall have spent years taking their message globally; each body of work more impressive than the last. Their last album Awakening(2011) achieved their best sales to date hitting #32 on the Billboard Top 200. Noted as Alternative Press' Most Anticipated album of 2013, the band commissioned producer Joey Sturgis (Asking Alexandria, The Devil Wears Prada, Of Mice & Men) to record new album Hollow Bodies. Never before recruiting outsiders, the band enlisted the help of friends to feature 3 guest vocal spots on Hollow Bodies, including Jake Luhrs of August Burns Red, Jesse Barnett of Stick To Your Guns, and electro-rock sensation Lights. The band is currently on the entire Vans Warped Tour for their main stage slot, adding to an already impressive tour resume that includes runs with As I Lay Dying, Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet For My Valentine, and August Burns Red. Throughout the album's 11 charging tracks, Hollow Bodies is blessthefall's reinvigorating approach to an already impressive catalog and career.
