Biography

Dallas, United States (2006 – present)

There are two artists that have used the name Memphis May Fire:
1) A rock band from Dallas, Texas.
2) A heavy metal band from Baltimore, Maryland.

Memphis May Fire is an American rock band currently based in Dallas, Texas. Since its formation, the band has released two EPs and three full-length albums, the latest being Challenger which was released June 2012. Their music has been compared to Underoath and He Is Legend. The band formed in December 2006, but it was not until February 2007 that the group decided on the name Memphis May Fire having previously gone by O Captain, My Captain!

In early 2007, the band recorded and self-released an EP, and began creating a local following. Shortly thereafter, Memphis May Fire caught the attention of Josh Grabelle, the president of Trustkill Records. In September 2007 the band had officially signed to Trustkill, and their self-titled EP (Memphis May Fire)was reissued through the label in December 2007.

Memphis May Fire hoped to release their debut album by summer 2008, however, during the recording sessions for the album, lead singer Chase Ryan decided to leave the band. Chase explained that he felt that his priorities should be with his new born child, and not a band. Upon announcing his resignation, bass player Austin Radford also decided to part ways with the band shortly thereafter. He would be replaced by Cory Elder. Open auditions were held shortly after Chase’s departure, and he was eventually replaced by a new vocalist, Matty Mullins. By this time, Memphis May Fire had already recorded their instruments for the new album with producer Casey Bates and only needed Mullins to contribute his vocals.

    they're not actually getting worse, if you've actually paid an iota of attention. they're just comfortable with a certain formula.

    "matter of time to forget about them" I remember when people said this about Underoath, Hawthorne Heights, Silverstein, etc. 10 years ago. Clearly some awful predictions made there.
