Memphis May Fire have entered the studio to record the follow up to their massively successful 2014 Rise Records LP, ‘Unconditional,’ which debuted at #4 on Billboard’s Top 200 and #1 on the Alternative Albums chart.

For the new album, the band has enlisted producer Matt Good (From First To Last, Blessthefall, The Word Alive) with Cameron Mizell (For All Those Sleeping, Myka Relocate, Sleeping With Sirens) handling vocal production duties.

The forthcoming effort was recently selected as one of the ‘Most Anticipated Albums’ of 2016 by the editors of Alternative Press.

The Nashville, TN-based rockers will take a break from recording to serve as direct support on Killswitch Engage’s upcoming headline tour. Offering additional support is 36 Crazyfists. Tickets are on sale now.

Front man Matty Mullins says, “We’re recording our new album in Phoenix, AZ at Matt Good’s studio. He’s an exciting new producer & we are ecstatic to see what he brings to the table. Cameron Mizell will be working on my vocals as always, he’s a long time friend & one the best vocal producers is biz. We spent all year writing & preparing for this record, & it shows. This is by far our best work yet & we can’t wait to share it with the world! MMF 2016!!!”
