New album, ‘Remade in Misery,’ out June 3 via longtime label Rise Records
Memphis May Fire – Matty Mullins (vocals), Kellen McGregor (guitar), Cory Elder (bass) and Jake Garland (drums) – have shared "Only Human" from their upcoming seventh album, “Remade in Misery.”
Their team said, “The explosively rhythmic track features guest vocals from Fire From the Gods' AJ Channer, who bounces lyrics off Mullins for a double dose of ferocity.”

" 'Only Human' is one of my personal favorites off the new record," Mullins said. "AJ Channer is the only guest vocalist on the new album, and we couldn't be more stoked to have him on this one. He's a vocal powerhouse and really took this tune to the next level."
Each song drop from “Remade in Misery” thus far has had a philanthropic element and has been accompanied by a piece of charity-driven merch available at the band's online store. For "Only Human," proceeds from the T-shirt will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, a charity and veterans service organization that offers a variety of programs, services and events for wounded veterans of the military actions following Sept. 11, 2001. The charity was selected by Channer.
“Remade in Misery” arrives June 3 via longtime label Rise Records. Preorder it here.
Last summer, Memphis May Fire dropped a series of singles, which accumulated nearly 46 million streams combined.
Memphis May Fire have always made anthems for the broken. The four-piece rock band channels 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 refuse to sacrifice who they are or the people who made them. In fact, “Remade in Misery,” is the heaviest Memphis May Fire record yet.
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.
The band confronts anxiety, violence and polarization all over “Remade in Misery,” strengthened by a foundation of hope and renewal at the heart of the lyrics, which 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 have 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 coheadlined 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. Their catalog accounts for over 100 million views and millions of streams on fan-favorite songs.
"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 OK to be imperfect. That someone else knows your hurt."
