Memphis May Fire have shared, ‘Your Turn’ from their upcoming seventh record, ‘Remade In Misery’
“‘Your Turn’ is our ninth and final single before the album comes out as a whole,” Mullins says. “It’s been such a wild and rewarding ride to release music in such a non-traditional way, especially because even this far along, we’re still so excited about each and every song! We’re thrilled to share that we will be donating 100% of the proceeds from the ‘Your Turn’ tee in our merch store to Food for the Hungry, whose mission is to end all forms of human poverty by providing life-changing development programs, disaster relief, and advocacy. Our donation will be specifically allocated toward their relief efforts for those affected by the war in Ukraine.”
Each song drop from Remade in Misery thus far has had a philanthropic element and has been accompanied by a piece of charity-driven merch that is available at the band’s online store.
Remade in Misery arrives on 3rd June via longtime label Rise Records. Pre-order it here.
Memphis May Fire have announced their seventh album Remade in Misery. The album arrives on 3rd June via longtime label Rise Records.
Regarding the process of crafting the new album, Mullins says, “The last nine months have been such a refreshing journey for us. We knew that releasing singles for this long, without any news of an upcoming album, would come with challenges, but we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. We’re finally at the point of announcing the entire body of work, and I can genuinely say we are just as excited now as the day the first single dropped.”
He finishes, “Remade in Misery is undoubtedly a new season for MMF. We have truly rediscovered who we are as a band through these songs, and we can’t wait to bring them to life on upcoming tours.”
“Our seventh single has arrived and it’s one of my favorite MMF tunes of all time,” shares Mullins. “‘Make Believe’ feels significantly different from the rest of the singles and it offers a whole new flavor that our fans haven’t heard from us before. The song is about enduring so much pain that you feel like you are losing your grip on reality, questioning everything you’ve ever known, and starting to wonder if life is just a simulation. Having had a lot of success with therapy in my own life, I’m a huge advocate for it and I’m excited to announce that we will be donating 100% of the proceeds from the ‘Not the Same’ tee in our merch store to The Refuge Center For Counseling in Franklin, Tennessee.”

Memphis May Fire are closing out their 2021 in style with the release of their latest track and video for ‘Left For Dead’.
“It’s definitely not the ‘norm’ to release such a heavy-hearted song this close to Christmas, but the truth is, there are so many people hurting during the holiday season,” explains Mullins. “Pain is an unavoidable part of the human experience and it doesn’t magically disappear at this time of year. I hope that anyone who can relate to ‘Left For Dead’ will feel less alone in their pain, especially during a time when social media makes you feel like you’re the only one struggling. We will be donating 100% of the proceeds from the ‘Left For Dead’ tee in our online merch store to Beneath the Skin, a non profit that provides genuine connection to young women who feel alone through peer-to-peer mentoring.”
While 2021 was an active year for the band, Memphis May Fire are poised to have an even bigger 2022.
MEMPHIS MAY FIRE have spent the past several months thrilling their dedicated legion of fans with a trio of fiery new tracks, all released via longtime label Rise Records. Today, the band continues the trend by releasing the video for the brand new single “Somebody.”
“We’re always wanting to push the boundaries of what people think MMF is and ‘Somebody’ is no exception to that,” explains Mullins. “From the second we finished the song, it became an all-time favorite for everyone in our camp. So it’s been REALLY hard to keep it a secret until now.”
He continues, “The lyrical content is blatantly about substance abuse and addiction so we wanted to use this release to put a spotlight on a non-profit that does incredible addiction recovery work here in Nashville. We will be donating 100% of the proceeds of the ‘Hands’ tee in our online merch store to The Nashville Rescue Mission.” The NRM gives hope for today, hope for tomorrow, and hope for eternity to the hungry, homeless, and hurting by providing meals, safe shelter, and clothing, as well as support and long-term assistance for those struggling with homelessness, drug or alcohol addiction, or any number of other life-altering challenges.
Last month, MEMPHIS MAY FIRE —Matty Mullins (vocals), Kellen McGregor (guitar), Cory Elder (bass), and Jake Garland (drums) — returned with new song “Blood & Water.” The crackling track quickly accumulated 5.5 million global streams in five weeks and over a million views on the video.
Today Memphis May Fire have just dropped the video for another new song ‘Death Inside.‘. In the track the band explore some fresh sonic territory, while the visual finds the band in performance mode. After a year without live concerts, the video is an effective and in-your-face reminder of the band’s live energy and presence.
Watch the video below.
“‘Death Inside’ is a new flavour for Memphis May Fire,” Mullins explains. “I wanted to get out of my comfort zone with the vocals on this one and ended up discovering a sound that I think really caters to the concept. The song is about fear of death and the choice to either let it consume you or live life to the fullest. We are donating 100 percent of the profits from a new t-shirt in our merch store to one of my favorite non-profits called Living the Dream. LTD helps children and young adults living with life-threatening illnesses stay positive, maintain hope, and appreciate each and every day, regardless of their affliction.” The band’s merch store is here.
Expect more anthems for the broken and beyond from Memphis May Fire in due course.
MEMPHIS MAY FIRE —Matty Mullins (vocals), Kellen McGregor (guitar), Cory Elder (bass), and Jake Garland (drums) — have released explosive new single ‘Blood & Water.’
Watch the video below.
“With everything that’s happened over the last year, it feels surreal to be releasing new music,” says singer Matty Mullins, offering insight into both the song and the band’s creative headspace. “Creating during a pandemic came with a lot of challenges. But looking back, I think we needed that time off the road to fall in love with writing songs again. ‘Blood & Water’ is just a taste of what’s to come and we couldn’t be more excited for the world to finally hear it.”
The band has launched two new merch designs, which are available here.
100% of the profits of one of the new designs will be donated to Bridges DVC Nashville, which serves women, men and their children affected by domestic violence, ensuring a safe transition to successful independent living. Bridges is breaking the cycle of domestic violence in the greater Nashville area by responding directly to the scene of an assault to offer immediate support, education and networking with other agencies.
Over the course of their career, Memphis May Fire have channeled a generation’s worth of angst, frustration, and pain, with a focused blend of gigantic melodic hooks and crushing aggression. Even after topping Billboard’s Hard Music Albums chart, having an album debut at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200, and breaking into radio’s Active Rock Top 20, Memphis May Fire refuse to sacrifice who they are or the people who made them.
A new season unfolds for the band, and it’s filled with revitalisation and renewal. Stripping things down to their core elements, hearkening back to the days when they created the music their fans most cherish, Memphis May Fire rekindled the spark within to build an inferno of riffs and inspirational words. They have returned to their roots with the seasoned polish earned through years of touring and making music together. “Blood & Water” is proof positive of this fact.
Memphis May Fire have toured with a vast list of important rock and metal acts that include Killswitch Engage, Sleeping With Sirens, Black Veil Brides, Sevendust, and Atreyu. They’ve co-headlined with Yellowcard and The Devil Wears Prada, regularly appeared on Warped Tour, and at major rock festivals. The band’s previous six albums’ continued relevance is a testament to the energized connectivity between the band and their audience. Songs like “Miles Away,” “No Ordinary Love,” “Beneath the Skin,” and “Carry On” account for 100 million views and millions of streams.
An allegation recently surfaced on Twitter claiming that Matty Mullins of Memphis May Fire used a racial slur in the past on a voicemail message to his manager.
The voicemail was uploaded to SoundCloud but has since been deleted.
Following the circulation of the tweet, Mullins has addressed the allegations, issuing a statement where he offers an apology for the choice of words used.
The full statement can be read below.
“10 years ago, before the band had any real traction, I spoke with my manager at the time on the phone every day. Aside from talking about business, we also joked around a lot. I was young, excited, stupid, and always hyper. Anytime he didn’t answer a call I would leave a ridiculously exaggerated or vulgar voicemail for him to chuckle at before calling me back.
A couple years later after the band had seen some success, he took some bits & pieces from the voicemails & made a song with them. His intention was for us to listen, laugh & look back on how far we had come since those ridiculous days. All this time later, that song fell into the hands of some people that do not know me.
Naturally I have seen a burst of angry social media comments from those people who do not know the context or timeframe of what was said and want to expose me in light of everything happening in the world right now, and to be honest, I get it! I would never sit here and try to defend ignorant things that came out of my mouth when I was young and immature. I’m addressing this because those who have heard about it deserve to have the whole story.
Over the last 10 years my life has changed drastically, from both experiences I’ve had and the maturity that comes with getting older. I’ve made a lot of mistakes and learned so much from all of them. I’ve learned just how powerful words can be, from the stage and interviews all the way to a private or light hearted conversation.
My choice of language back then showed a lack of judgement and understanding of how hurtful words can truly be, and for that I sincerely apologize from the bottom of my heart. You rarely get an opportunity to explain yourself to everyone that sees something on the internet, so I am grateful for anyone taking the time to read this.
With a career in music comes a platform and ability to reach countless people. I want nothing more than to use my platform to spread love, hope, joy, and any knowledge I might again along the way.
I am forever grateful to everyone that has been with me on this journey of life. I’m learning & growing every day and will be until the day I die. Thank you for taking the time to hear from my heart.”
