Happy #NewMusicFriday head-bangers. If you’ve been hanging out for the end of the week in the hope of catching some new Memphis May Fire, then your spider-senses served you well. The band’s dropped new song ‘Bleed Me Dry‘ on the back of recent singles ‘Death Inside‘ and ‘Blood & Water‘ which has excited fans. Memphis May Fire are bringing back that good ol’ heavy metalcore sound that we haven’t heard enough of from them in the past few years. An album announcement through Rise Records is surely imminent from the Texan metalcore band – but no news on that one yet.
‘Bleed Me Dry’ has front-man Matty Mullins delivering that medium-sauce vocal-effort which meets his unclean growls and well-seasoned cleans halfway. The track is steady with the classic Memphis May Fire sound spinning in and out of control as Mullins spills into his unclean demeanour in line with delicious windy breakdowns. What I love about this band, and the sound they’re bringing back in 2021, is that mixture of their newer melodic sound with the dirty metalcore roots they had us discover them with. Check it out and play it alongside the other two new tracks, and get excited for a continued new era from Memphis May Fire.
