Memphis May Fire will illuminate yet again with their new album â€œThis Light I Holdâ€, set to take flame on October 28.
With over 300,000 albums sold and sizzling on the fourth spot on Billboard top 200 with their previous 2014 effort â€œUnconditionalâ€, â€œThis Light I Holdâ€ will be the fourth installment for the band.
Produced by Matt Good, the album is said to contain â€œ13 powerful, hard-hitting songsâ€ that will lure new listeners as well as satisfy current ones. According to a press release by Earshot Media, guitarist Kellen McGregor said the album has a sonic vibe and each song â€œstands on its own yet the album gels as a cohesive whole.â€
On Monday, the first single from the album, â€œCarry Onâ€ charred the airwaves on BBC 1 accompanied with the release of the trackâ€™s lyric video, that is available for streaming at www.thislightihold.com. Pre-orders of â€œThis Light I Holdâ€ are available on MerchNowÂ andÂ iTunes.Â Â Fans can also grab bundles including CD, vinyl and cassette versions of the album which can be found http://www.memphismayfire.com/.
In light of the albumâ€™s release, Memphis May Fire will go on a two month â€œRise Up Tourâ€ co-headlining with The Devil Wears Prada, Silverstein and special guests Like Moths To Flame. Starting in October the tour kicks off in Denver and will hit three California venues, including San Diegoâ€™s SOMA and Pomonaâ€™s Glasshouse, and ends in November.
