Memphis May Fire Bio:

Barely a year ago Memphis May Fire undertook the daunting task of finding a new singer and regaining that southern rock soul that had driven their aggressive brand of rock-n-roll. The wait is over, and they mean it when they say they're here to stay. Sometimes life finds a way even when you least expect it. The guys in Memphis May Fire are no stranger to that proven fact. Armed with their powerful new singer Matt Mullins, the boys finished their expectation-shattering new full length record "Sleepwalking", and picked up some help in the rhythm section along the way with new bassist Cory Elder. The team of Mullins and guitarist Kellen McGregor proved to be worth the wait, for "Sleepwalking" not only turns heads with every song, but presents an honest message of hope and truth, something often lost in the sea of bands today. Singer Matt Mullins describes "Sleepwalking" as "... a new breed of rock-n-roll. We wanted to have an honest lyrical message but also tell people that there is still hope in this crazy world, and that there is more than just the here and now. Our fans will notice that music wise, its much more aggressive guitar work and noticeably more melodic, but still retains that southern swagger. We are very proud of this record and we are sure both old and new fans will love it." For those of you unfamiliar with MMF, the story starts deep in the heart of Texas. Two years ago, these guys had no idea that writing what they considered to be "just fun, fast music we wanted to have fun playing live," would be something that would get them out of the state and from coast to coast multiple times. Their self titled EP had a quick start to it and the band quickly drew label attention from all over. Barely 7 months later, the band embarked on their first tour, and in another 3 months inked a deal with Trustkill Records. Fast forward almost two years of touring and heartbreak later, they emerge with a career-defining debut album and from the sound of things, they weren't afraid to break some rules as heard on the western-verse riffed "Ghost in the Mirror". For those who may have been skeptical before, the varied tempos and occasional guitar solo are sure to grab anyone's attention; much less the strong lyrics and vocals by Matt Mullins. In this record, there is truly something for everyone.
