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.
We're really loud, and like to break stuff.

A Skylit Drive
A Skylit Drive is a six-piece post-hardcore band from Lodi/Galt California.

The Word Alive
Similar to: Ice Nine Kills, Miss May I
Over the past couple of years, The Word Alive has gained a global reputation for pushing the boundaries within their genre. But with new sophomore full-length 'Life Cycles', the Arizona quintet is set to join an elite club of heavy music luminaries ushering in the next evolution of melodic metal. Exploring themes of both personal and musical development, the album marks the moment when The Word Alive took destiny firmly by the reins, determined to eclipse their past accomplishments. The follow-up to acclaimed album 'Deceiver', the group enlisted red-hot metal producer Joey Sturgis (The Devil Wears Prada, Asking Alexandria, Of Mice & Men), reaching a new level of musical complexity and composition. Continuing their worldwide attack, the band kicked off the campaign for 'Life Cycles' with a U .S. tour with Attack Attack!, before they tear across Europe, and into a full summer on The All Stars Tour. With a new album packed as solid as their tour schedule, The Word Alive are ready to storm into a bright future.
