Memphis May Fire is taking on humans’ thoughts on mortality in its new single.
The band debuted its new single, ‘Death Inside‘ and its video Tuesday. The band took a unique, previously unexplored approach to ‘Death Inside’ in comparison to its existing body of work. The band’s familiar melodic metalcore approach and sound is present here, but at the same time, this arrangement also incorporates something of a nu-metal/rap-rock approach in the verses. The pairing of that unique approach alongside the band’s more familiar sound makes the song’s overall arrangement such that it will generate some discussion among audiences.
Front man Matty Mullins talked about the new approach during a recent interview.
“‘Death Inside’ is a new flavor for MMF,” said Mullins. “I wanted to get out of my comfort zone with the vocals on this one and ended up discovering a sound that I think really caters to the concept.”
Additionally, he talked about how that approach connected to the song’s philosophical lyrical theme, stating, “The song is about fear of death and the choice to either let it consume you or live life to the fullest.”
In related news, Memphis May Fire has launched a new fundraising effort to aid the nonprofit organization, Living The Dream. The agency will receive 100 percent of proceeds from sales of the band’s new t-shirt, which is available now in the band’s merchandise store.
Mullins explained of the nonprofit, “LTD helps children and young adults living with life-threatening illnesses stay positive, maintain hope, and appreciate each and every day, regardless of their affliction.”
The premiere of ‘Death Inside’ comes more than a month after the band premiered the video for its then latest single, ‘Blood & Water.’ The song and its video were the first from the band since the release of its album Broken in 2019. That album produced the singles ‘The Old Me,’ ‘Heavy is the Weight (ft. Andy Mineo)‘ and ‘You and Me.’
The premiere of ‘Blood & Water’ was also partnered with the launch of a related fundraiser for Bridges DVC Nashville. One hundred percent of the sales from the band’s two new merchandise designs benefitted the center, which serves men, women, and children affected by domestic violence in the greater Nashville, TN region.
In other news, Memphis May Fire will perform two live shows this week. The first performance is scheduled to take place Thursday at the Rock Fest in Cadott, WI. The second is scheduled to take place Friday at the Alive Festival in Mineral City, OH.
