Memphis May Fire followed up the debut of the video for ‘Blood & Water’ with the premiere of its new single, ‘Death Inside‘ and its video last month.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Bleed Me Dry’ is a driving hard rock composition. Its choruses lend themselves to comparison to works from Linkin Park, what with the pairing of front man Matty Mullins’ vocal delivery style and sound, and the song’s instrumentation style and sound. The verses meanwhile exhibit an almost industrial influence with the use of the guitars and keyboards. At the same time, Mullins’ vocals are just as comparable here to those of the late, great Chester Bennington. The whole makes this song just as unlike ‘Death Inside’ and ‘Blood & Water’ as they are from one another.
The lyrical theme featured in ‘Bleed Me Dry’ delivers a message of determination according to Mullins.
“Our third single of the year, ‘Bleed Me Dry,’ is my favorite yet,” he said. “It’s an anthem for anyone feeling beaten down by the negative voices around them.”
The video for ‘Bleed Me Dry’ is a simple presentation. It features the band performing its new single on a darkened sound stage as the song plays over. A wall of monitors stands behind the band as it performs.
In other news, Memphis May Fire has announced a new, brief live run. The tour is scheduled to launch Sept. 11 in Gilford, NH and to run through Sept. 22 in Huntington, WV. The tour’s schedule is noted below. Breaking Benjamin and Papa Roach are scheduled to join the band for the tour.
MEMPHIS MAY FIRE TOUR DATES: WITH BREAKING BENJAMIN + PAPA ROACH 9/11 — Gilford, NH — Bank of New Hampshire Pavillion 9/12 — Montclair, NJ — The Wellmont Theater 9/14 — Columbus, OH — Express Live! 9/15 — Toledo, OH — Huntington Center 9/17 — Uncasville, CT — Mohegan Sun Arena 9/18 — Scranton, PA — The Pavillion at Montage Mountain 9/21 — Youngstown, OH — Covelli Centre 9/22 — Hutnington, WV — Mountain Health Arena
On yet another note, Mullins recently commented on one of many charity works that it is conducting. The work in question is raising money for the nonprofit organization Heart Support, which helps people who battle a variety of mental health concerns.
“We’re so excited to announce that we will be donating 100% of the proceeds from the ‘In Your Eyes’ tee in our online merch store to one of our favorite non-profits — Heart Support!,” he said. “Every year, Heart Support helps men and women brave their wounds, find purpose, and discover healing. I am so stoked for everyone to hear this song and get involved with a great cause!”
MMF’s charity work with Heart Support is, as noted, just some of the charity work that it is doing. The band is also working with the nonprofit, Living The Dream, raising money for that agency also through sales of its apparel.
The band has also partnered with the domestic violence firm, Bridges DVC Nashville to launch two new merchandise designs. One hundred percent of the sales from the designs will go to benefit the center, which serves men, women, and children affected by domestic violence in the greater Nashville, TN region.

Papa Roach will release its latest hits compilation next month.
Dubbed Greatest Hits Vol. 2: The Better Noise Years the new compilation — the band’s second singles collection — is scheduled for release March 19 through Better Noise Records. Pre-orders are open now.
In anticipation of the compilation’s release, the band has debuted a re-mastered take of its 2015 single ‘Broken As Me.’ The updated take on the song features guest vocals by Asking Alexandra front man Danny Worsnop.
Papa Roach front man Jacoby Shaddix talked about bringing Worsnop on board for the updated take during a recent interview.
“He’s been on our list for a while, and having just toured together, we thought of Danny first when listening to some of the deeper cuts on the album,” said Shaddix. “With the pandemic in full swing, Danny was down right away. He’s one of the best vocalists in rock music, so we’re happy he said yes.”
Worsnop said in his own comments, he was excited to take part in the song’s update.
“Making music with my friends is something I always love and enjoy, so when Jacoby called me about doing something together I was in right away,” said Worsnop. “The Papa Roach guys have been close friends for a long time now and I’m glad they were able to see that the only thing holding them back from stardom all these years was not having me sing on a new version of one of their songs. I think this is really going to put them on the map and from the bottom of my heart, they’re welcome!”
Guitarist Jerry Horton talked about the new compilation with his own comments.
“We wanted to commemorate the last 10 years of our journey with a sampling of the music that got us here,” said Horton. “None of it could have been possible without the support of all of our families, our friends, or team and most of all, you–our fans.”
Greatest Hits Vol. 2: The Better Noise Years will feature 21 songs. Among those songs is a total of 12 of the band’s recent Top 10 singles released from 2010-2019 through Better Noise Records. Also featured in the new compilation is a collection of previously unreleased remixes and acoustic performances, which were themselves recorded live at YouTube Studios.
The recording’s track listing is noted below.
1. Born For Greatness (Remastered 2020)
2. Help (Remastered 2020)
3. Elevate (Remastered 2020)
4. Come Around (Remastered 2020)
5. Broken As Me (feat. Danny Worsnop of Asking Alexandria)
Papa Roach’s first singles collection, …To Be Loved – The Best of Papa Roach was released in 2010. It covered the band’s hits from 1999-2009. The band was signed to Interscope Records during that time frame.
More information on Papa Roach’s forthcoming singles collection is available along with all of the band’s latest news at:
Independent hard rock band Fire Follows debuted the video for its latest single over the weekend along with the song’s companion video.
The band debuted its new single ‘Glass Grenade‘ Friday through Ghost Cult Magazine along with its companion video. Its debut comes less than four months after the band debuted its then latest single, ‘Black and White’ and itsvideo. Both songs are featured in the band’s EP Glass Grenade.
‘Glass Grenade’ presents a musical arrangement that immediately lends itself to comparisons to works from the likes of Linkin Park and Papa Roach. That is evidenced through the back and forth of the clean vocals and screams and the very specific approach to the song’s guitar line.
The lyrical content that accompanies the song’s musical arrangement focuses on the impact that actions and words can have on a relationship. The band addressed that message in a prepared statement.
“The metaphor portrays an individual who has created tremendous suffering and strife inside of an intimate relationship, and the vulnerability the other party is often forced to endure,” the statement reads. “The “Glass Grenade” represents a fragile heart that is on the verge of breaking, and the catastrophic damage that can be done if it does…. an insightful message wrapped in a powerful instrumental makes this one of the strongest tracks Fire Follows has ever released.”‘
The video for ‘Glass Grenade’ features the band performing its new single in an empty warehouse. The visual is meant to reflect the band on stage. The emptiness (intentionally or not) reflects the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on live music.
More information on Fire Follows’ new video and single is available along with all of the band’s latest news at:
Ice Nine Kills is celebrating the holidays by giving its fans a very special gift.
The band has made available, the video game from the video for its single ‘Merry Axe-Mas.’ The band debuted the sing’es video Dec. 21, 2018. The single is taken from the band’s 2018 album The Silver Scream and is also featured on the album’s recent re-issue, subtitled The Final Cut.
The video game features three levels — Santa’s Forgiveness, Santa’s Forest and Silence The Sinners — through which Santa Claus wreaks some serious holiday havoc. The video game and the song and video are all inspired by the controversial 1984 slasher flick Silent Night, Deadly Night, which is a favorite of INK front man Spencer Charnas.
Ice Nine Kills spent much of this year touring in support of its latest release The Silver Scream and its re-issue on the “Silver Scream World Tour” and “The Octane Accelerator Tour,” which was presented by Sirius XM. The majority of the shows on that latter tour were sold out.
The band will continue its support of The Silver Scream well into the new year with a string of European dates in February and March. That run will give way to another North American run that is scheduled to launch April 8 in Sunrise, FL and to run through May 20 in St. Paul, MN. From there, the band will make its way to the United Kingdom for a brief stint there in late May.
Papa Roach, Five Finger Death Punch, I Prevail and Hollywood Undead will join the band on several dates. The bands’ current tour schedule is noted below. Tickets are available here.

This year, the Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion Festival celebrates its fifth anniversary with one of its biggest lineups to date.

Those names include the likes of: Slayer, Slipknot, Queensryche, Hatebreed, Cheap Trick, Korn, Marilyn Manson, Rise Against, Jackyl, In Flames, Periphery, and many other major names. The current lineup for this year’s festival is listed below.

We’re honored to be playing in the company of Cheap Trick, one of my all-time favorites, as well as playing with such good friends like Korn, Halestorm and Slayer!” Korn front man Jonathan Davis explained that the Carolina Rebellion festival plays a very important part in that band’s history as it served as the point of reunion for the band with guitarist Brian “Head” Welch in 2012. “Three years ago, we reunited with our brother Head on stage at Carolina Rebellion. Since then, we made a new album and toured the world together,” he said. He went on to note that the reunion means even more as the band plans on playing its debut album in its entirety at this year’s festival.
