Memphis May Fire

Despite the name, Memphis May Fire are not from Tennessee, but rather Dallas, Texas, where everything is bigger and bolder. Unsurprisingly, the band’s musical output is extremely difficult to classify, having siphoned from the very best of its various post-hardcore / southern rock influences to create something wholly unique; the result of which presents an unparalleled blend of elegance & aggression that can only be defined as Memphis May Fire. Nothing more, nothing less. No trends. No excess. Simply a group of individuals that stand in defiance of all things mundane.

Despite the name, Memphis May Fire are not from Tennessee, but rather Dallas, Texas, where everything is bigger and bolder. Unsurprisingly, the band’s musical output is extremely difficult to classify, having siphoned from the very best of its various post-hardcore / southern rock influences to create something wholly unique; the result of which presents an unparalleled blend of elegance & aggression that can only be defined as Memphis May Fire. Nothing more, nothing less. No trends. No excess. Simply a group of individuals that stand in defiance of all things mundane.

Revolver Magazine selected Memphis May Fire as one of the "Top 25 Bands Under 25," at a time when MMF had barely scratched the surface of what was to come upon releasing their Rise Records debut, The Hollow. In what has proved to be quite the label partnership, MMF leaped past the sales of all its label mates in just a few months’ time. This pivotal point in the band’s history spawned a disciple-like dedication that continues to spread across the globe to this day. "I think that fans really connected with The Hollow because it dealt with personified life experiences and outside perspectives on a variety of relatable topics” spoke guitarist Kellen McGregor regarding the album's universal appeal and why it was so well received.

MMF followed The Hollow, a critical success far from the emptiness its title implies, with 2012’s Challenger. The album, which debuted at #16 on the Billboard 200 with sales of over 18 thousand copies in its first week, showcased the depth and breadth of their songwriting prowess and cemented their cohesion as a unit. A now well-oiled machine, MMF have proven themselves light years ahead of a scene in dire need of reinvention.

“The whole band is firing on all cylinders… Challenger is a blast” – Ultimate-Guitar.Co.

“Challenger is sturdy and powerful, with the right mix of ebb & flow” – Alternative Pres.

The dynamic five-piece supported Challenger with a stint on Warped Tour 2012 followed by high-profile touring with Of Mice & Men in UK/Europe and Asking Alexandria in the United States. With a main-stage slot on Warped Tour 2013 and a devoted worldwide fan-base built from years of nonstop global touring, the band have all the tools and desire in place for a lengthy tenure in the heavy music scene. Eyes on the prize; there's no glass ceiling here. Only further places to go.
