Memphis May Fire Premiere “Death Inside” Video

Matty Mullins commented:

“’Death Inside’ is a new flavor for MMF. I wanted to get out of my comfort zone with the vocals on this one and ended up discovering a sound that I think really caters to the concept. The song is about fear of death and the choice to either let it consume you or live life to the fullest.

We are donating 100 percent of the profits from a new t-shirt in our merch store to one of my favorite non-profits called Living the Dream. LTD helps children and young adults living with life-threatening illnesses stay positive, maintain hope, and appreciate each and every day, regardless of their affliction.”

But looking back, I think we needed that time off the road to fall in love with writing songs again. ‘Blood & Water‘ is just a taste of what’s to come and we couldn’t be more excited for the world to finally hear it.”

Memphis May Fire’s Matty Mullins Issues Apology After Audio Emerges Of Him Using A Racial Slur

Memphis May Fire vocalist Matty Mullins has issued an apology after audio of him using the n-word in a voicemail recently surfaced online. According to The PRP, the racial slur “appeared to be used in context of shameful cultural appropriation and not in reference to a particular person.”

Mullins said the following:

“10 years ago, before the band had any real traction, I spoke with my manager at the time on the phone every day. Aside from talking about business, we also joked around a lot. I was young, excited, stupid, and always hyper. Anytime he didn’t answer a call I would leave a ridiculously exaggerated or vulgar voicemail for him to chuckle at before calling me back.

A couple years later after the band had seen some success, he took some bits & pieces from the voicemails & made a song with them. His intention was for us to listen, laugh & look back on how far we had come since those ridiculous days. All this time later, that song fell into the hands of some people that do not know me.

Naturally I have seen a burst of angry social media comments from those people who do not know the context or timeframe of what was said and want to expose me in light of everything happening in the world right now, and to be honest, I get it! I would never sit here and try to defend ignorant things that came out of my mouth when I was young and immature. I’m addressing this because those who have heard about it deserve to have the whole story.

Over the last 10 years my life has changed drastically, from both experiences I’ve had and the maturity that comes with getting older. I’ve made a lot of mistakes and learned so much from all of them. I’ve learned just how powerful words can be, from the stage and interviews all the way to a private or light hearted conversation.

My choice of language back then showed a lack of judgement and understanding of how hurtful words can truly be, and for that I sincerely apologize from the bottom of my heart. You rarely get an opportunity to explain yourself to everyone that sees something on the internet, so I am grateful for anyone taking the time to read this.

With a career in music comes a platform and ability to reach countless people. I want nothing more than to use my platform to spread love, hope, joy, and any knowledge I might again along the way.

I am forever grateful to everyone that has been with me on this journey of life. I’m learning & growing every day and will be util the day I die. Thank you for taking the time to hear from my heart.”

Listen To Memphis May Fire’s Cover Of Linkin Park’s “Faint”

“A lot of times, when covering a song, you’re doing it for fun or to showcase your skills as an artist. But this specific opportunity was a chance for us to honor a band that has had a profound impact on us. There will never be another Linkin Park and there will never be another Chester Bennington. We are forever grateful for the music they made and we hope this cover will encourage our younger fans to dive into the Linkin Park discography and discover the same inspiration that we did years ago.”
