Memphis May Fire is paying tribute to Linkin Park and its late front man Chester Bennington.
The band debuted its cover of the band’s hit song ‘Fade‘ Friday. The song stays very close to its source material with the lyrics staying the same and the musical arrangement giving Linkin Park’s original a slight change in its presentation. Even with the variance in the musical arrangement, the song still stays very close to its source material.
MMF front may Matty Mullins talked about covering the song in a recent interview.
“A lot of times, when covering a song, you’re doing it for fun or to showcase your skills as an artist,” Mullins said. “But this specific opportunity was a chance for us to honor a band that has had a profound impact on us. There will never be another Linkin Park and there will never be another Chester Bennington. We are forever grateful for the music they made and we hope this will encourage our younger fans to dive into the Linkin Park discography and discover the same inspiration that we did years ago.”
In other news, Memphis May Fire will tour this summer on the inaugural Disrupt Festival. The band’s tour, which is in support of its latest album Broken (2018) is scheduled to launch June 21 in Dallas, TX and to run through July 28 in Albuquerque, NM.
