Memphis May Fire’s The Hollow Debuts at
#1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart!!!
Band Set To Headline The First-Ever Rise Records Tour Which Kicks Off May 7 in St LouisMO
Memphis May Fire’s Rise Records debut The Hollow is the #1 album on this week’s Billboard Heatseekers chart (http://www.billboard.com/charts/heatseekers-albums?order=gainer#/charts/heatseekers-albums?order=gainer).
The DallasTX based rock act has consistently pushed the envelope to redefine both themselves and the various sub-genres they’ve made their mark within. Their fresh approach to an otherwise stale scene gathered critical acclaim and helped them get their music featured on both the Saw VI Soundtrack and DVD/Blu-Ray releases. Subsequent touring with the likes of Asking Alexandria, From First To Last, and Alesana facilitated the delivery of their music to the masses and established a live precedent that the band continues to build on today.

Following well-received releases on Trustkill & Bullet Tooth, domestic/international touring success (featuring the band’s first visit to Japan) and a tag as one of Revolver Magazine’s “Top 25 Under 25,” the band recently found a new home at Rise Records which released their latest full-length, The Hollowon April 26. This move continues to broaden the band’s reach and welcomes a new world of possibilities within the scope of their burgeoning career. MMF’s high-octane live show acts as a testament to their ever-increasing identity and always leaves the audience wanting more.

Memphis May Fire wraps up the Hollow Tour this week and immediately begin a stint as headliner on the first-ever Rise Records Tour, which kicks off May 7 in St. Louis, MO.
