Memphis May Fire are a huge addition to the Warped Tour roster this year. In January 2011, the band signed their first major-label contract with Rise Records. The band’s major label debut, The Hollow, followed in the spring and debuted at #130 on the Billboard Top 200. Their latest album, Challenger, was released about a month ago and hit #16 on the Billboard Top 200.
When I asked about being on the Vans Warped Tour, Matty quickly replied, “It’s definitely my favorite tour of all time. It’s the best summer tour to be on.” After Warped wraps up, Memphis May Fire are headed to South America for a few dates, Europe with Of Mice & Men, and then back to the U.S. for a huge tour, for which the announcement has yet to be made…so stay tuned and get ready to set the States on fire!
