Who is Memphis May Fire?
Memphis May Fire is an American rock band from Nashville, Tennessee. The band is known for their melodic breakdowns and heavy music… packing a heavy message. A message of hope and love for everyone.
While not everyone will enjoy their heavy rock sound, a ton of people will hear the message and hope of Jesus for what could be the first time through their music. And that is worth supporting.
About the band
Memphis May Fire is currently on tour with rock bands Atreyu and Ice Nine Kills where I went to see them play at The Buckhead Theater in Atlanta, Georgia to find out what all the buzz was about. What I saw that night during Memphis May Fire’s set was so much more than I expected.
The crowd was diverse – people of different ages, races and all types of people and the band had a huge connection with their audience… Everyone seemed to come together for the concert and there was pure worship in the atmosphere. Now, the other acts were not Christian, but Memphis May Fire is 100% faith-based and sing about Jesus and His love for others but they don’t classify themselves as a Christian band… Rather as a band of Christians with a message bigger than life.
The new album, “Broken”
The band has a new album out, entitled “Broken” which is topping the rock charts and rotating on the radio now. It features the song “The Old Me” which is about overcoming anxiety and depression.

Speaking about his song, “The Old Me” he explains, – “What feels like a war between good and evil, loathing the person I become mentally when it consumes me and trying to remember what life was like before I lived with the symptoms. Ultimately hoping to one day become that person – ‘The Old Me’ – again.”
