Hot off the heels of their succesful debut album, “Sleepwalking” (Trustkill 2009), Dallas, TX’s own MEMPHIS MAY FIRE are back with their most powerful and compelling music of their career.  After touring the last year with Alesana, Asking Alexandria, The Chariot, Dance Gavin Dance, and more, the band went in to the studio and created 5 stunning tracks to showcase their new material. The songs are titled:

01. Be Careful What You Wish For
02. Action/Adventure
03. Vaulted Ceilings
04. Deuces Las Cruces
05. Gingervitus

“Between The Lies is one of the most thoroughly electrifying EPs to come out this year.”

Singer and lyricist Matty Mullins checked in and said, “We are so excited to unleash our new EP, “Between the Lies” on eager fans worldwide! This is by far our best work to date, and we’re stoked to have made a record that we love just as much as the fans will. These songs are heavier, more thoughtful, and clearly display the all around natural progression of this band over the past few years. ‘Between the Lies’ is truly a new beginning for Memphis May Fire.”

Memphis May Fire have been featured in Revolver, Alternative Press, Rock Sound, Kerrang!, Big Cheese, and more. Their single “Ghost In The Mirror” appeared on the “Saw VI Soundtrack” (2009) and music video on the “Saw VI” DVD (2010).

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
