Memphis May Fire - 2021

Memphis May Fire is back, doing what they do best — writing anthems for the broken. In their latest single, “Blood & Water,” these hard-hitters are tapping back into their roots with explosive energy and burning conviction, paired with a scorching performance in their new music video.

Vocalist Matty Mullins has this to say about the band’s creative headspace and the new track:

“With everything that’s happened over the last year, it feels surreal to be releasing new music. 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.”

In conjunction with the new single, the band has launched two new merch designs. 100% of the profits of one of the new designs will be donated to Bridges DVC Nashville, an organization that serves women, men, and children affected by domestic violence, ensuring a safe transition to successful independent living.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
