The Origins of Memphis May Fire
Memphis May Fire was formed in Dallas, back in the year 2006. At that time, the band consisted of vocalist Chase Ryan, bassist Austin Radford, guitarist Ryan Bentley, back up vocalist and guitarist Kellen McGregor and drummer Jeremy Grisham. Together, these five individuals were signed to Trustkill Records and began work on writing their first EP. The band decided to merge together elements of metal and hardcore music in their sound in a very intricate way.
According to the president of Trustkill Records, Josh Grabelle, "There is a lot of really exciting, young, dangerous music coming out right now, and Memphis May Fire are the cream of the crop. Not since Bullet for My Valentine's Hand of Blood have we heard a more compelling set of songs for an EP, where absolutely every song is bone-chillingly perfect, and timeless. These guys are on their way to something huge."
When 2009 rolled around, lead singer Chase Ryan was replaced by a new vocalist, Matty Mullins. The drummer, Ryan Dooley, as well as bassist Austin Radford also left the band. They were replaced by Jake Garland and Cory Elder respectively.
At that point, Memphis May Fire started work on their first full length studio album. Their debut album, “Sleepwalking,” was released in July 2009. Memphis May Fire was praised for their bold musical direction, which also incorporated elements of southern rock and swagger. Their explosive single ‘Ghost In The Mirror’ was considered such a hit that it even featured in the Saw VI Soundtrack and DVD/Blu-Ray release.
More Music Is Released
Memphis May Fire continued to write and record new music. In 2010, they released another EP called Between the Lies which featured a different musical style.
In 2011, the band would sign on with a different record label, Rise Records. Their second full length studio album was released in the spring of that year and was called The Hollow. The album debuted at the top of the Billboard's U.S. Heatseekers chart. Hits like ‘The Sinner’ and ‘The Unfaithful’ helped the band reach out to more fans and gain popularity.
They also performed the entirety of the 2012 Vans Warped Tour. The next year, Memphis May Fire released their third album called Challenger. It featured hit singles like ‘Prove Me Right’ and ‘Vices’. To promote this album, the band embarked on a massive tour across North America and Europe.
