Memphis May Fire

Memphis May Fire makes anthems for the broken. The four-piece rock band channel a generation’s worth of angst, frustration, and pain, with a focused blend of gigantic melodic hooks and crushing aggression. Even after topping Billboard’s Hard Music Albums chart and breaking into radio’s Active Rock Top 20, Memphis May Fire refuses to sacrifice who they are or the people who made them. 

A new season unfolds for the band, filled with revitalization and renewal. Stripping things down to their core elements, hearkening back to the days when they created the music their fans most cherish, Memphis May Fire rekindled the spark within to build an inferno of riffs and inspirational words. 

As Memphis May Fire, Matty Mullins, Kellen McGregor, Cory Elder, and Jake Garland confront anxiety, violence, and polarization all over their music, strengthened by a foundation of hope and renewal at the heart of the lyrics. Songs like “Bleed Me Dry,” “Death Inside,” “Only Human,” and “The Fight Within” evoke the cathartic bombast of the band’s best-known songs, a return to their roots with the seasoned polish earned through years of touring and making music together.

Memphis May Fire has toured with a vast list of important rock and metal acts that include Killswitch Engage, Sleeping With Sirens, Black Veil Brides, Sevendust, and Atreyu. They’ve co-headlined with Yellowcard and The Devil Wears Prada, regularly appeared on Warped Tour, and at major rock festivals. The band’s previous six albums' continued relevance is a testament to the energized connectivity between the band and their audience. Songs like “Miles Away,” “No Ordinary Love,” “Beneath the Skin,” and “Carry On” account for 100 million views and millions of streams.

“We want people to have songs they can sit down and listen to, or play in the gym, or driving in their car, and know the world is bigger than it seems,” Mullins says. “To know they exist in a world with other people that understand that it is okay to be imperfect. That someone else knows your hurt.”  

The Word Alive

Since 2008, The Word Alive have steadily maintained a course towards the forefront of alternative heavy music and have continued their upward trajectory ever since. The Phoenix-based quartet — Telle Smith [vocals], Zack Hansen [guitars], Tony Pizzuti [guitars], Matt Horn [drums] toss and turn between visceral power and entrancing emotionality encased in swathes of otherworldly electronics. It’s a singular sound that has naturally evolved since their debut record, Deceiver, and continued through their most recently release of Violent Noise. They’ve earned acclaim from the likes of Alternative PressRevolverGuitar World, and Modern Drummer and supported I Prevail, Killswitch Engage, A Day To Remember, Motionless In White, among others, and are known for their ability to ignite crowds across the globe. 2018’s Violent Noise represents the culmination of a decade and the unbreakable bond shared by the band and their fans. Telle, Zack, and Tony. Now, over 11 years after forming they continue to show they haven’t lost their spirit, as they’ve celebrated “10 Years Of The Word Alive” across America, Europe and the UK in 2019. 
As a thank you to long time fans as they embrace change and continue to push boundaries, they will be pausing working on new music to bring you an unforgettable and highly demanded DECEIVER ENTIRETY TOUR with longtime friends and tour mates Miss May I.

Wolf Rd

Wolf Rd combines the anthemic melodies and passion of pop-punk with metal and hardcore instrumentation to create a sound that is unique and genre-inclusive. With a seemingly endless supply of infectious hooks and big riffs, the band strives to create cathartic songs that you can easily picture packed crowds of fans screaming along to. Wolf Rd celebrated the launch of their debut EP “Nowhere Around You” with a sold-out record release show in late 2019. The band continued to promote the release with music videos and high-powered performances, sharing packed bills with artists like Meet Me @ The Altar, Action/Adventure, and dying in designer. Wolf Rd’s new acoustic EP – "Counterpoint" – features both original and reimagined tracks that showcase a more delicate side of the band
