MEMPHIS MAY FIRE To Release 'This Light I Hold' Album In October

Texas metalcore band MEMPHIS MAY FIRE will release its new studio album, "This Light I Hold", on October 28 via Rise Records. The CD features guest appearances by PAPA ROACH's Jacoby Shaddix (on the title track) and former MY AMERICAN HEART vocalist Larry Soliman (on "Not Over Yet").

Speaking about the new record, MEMPHIS MAY FIRE frontman Matty Mullins says: "I feel like we took a giant step forward with this album. Having time off to write and not being rushed in the studio made such a massive difference. Musically, lyrically, sonically, this is my favorite MEMPHIS MAY FIRE album. We can't wait to share with you 'This Light I Hold'!"

Adds guitarist Kellen McGregor: "'This Light I Hold' just has that vibe, sonically speaking, that our fans are going to love. Every song stands on its own, yet the album gels as a cohesive whole. We're really proud of this one!"
