Sevendust

Memphis May Fire
Memphis May Fire
The music of Memphis May Fire is the sound of hope and compassion, delivered by a dedicated group of men striving for something greater than the world around them. Memphis May Fire is a clarion call to those who insist on bettering themselves, their loved ones and the conditions afflicting the world. It's not about divisive politics, it's not about polarizing debate – it's about the transcendent power of love through heavy rock.

The body of work Memphis May Fire has crafted over their last three albums, together with producer and collaborator Cameron Mizell (Sleeping With Sirens, The Word Alive), represents a creative achievement beyond even what the band's formidable success would suggest. Sure, Unconditional arrived at #1 on Billboard's Rock, Independent andHard Music charts, but that was just the mainstream icing on a cake that was lovingly baked by fans around the world who've discovered Memphis May Fire in the live setting, from satellite radio, from social media and from each other.

These five guys are like family to over a million fans following Memphis May Fire on Facebook, the tens of thousands who rushed out to put this year's Unconditional at #4 in the Billboard 200, the dedicated diehards who empty the magazine rack whenever the group graces the cover of Big Cheese, Alternative Press, Outburn, etc. and the early believers who made Challenger the highest selling debut ever for Rise Records to that point when it was released in 2012. YouTube clips like "Sleepless Nights," "Miles Away," "The Sinner," and "Vices" together represent more than 20 million views.
Iridium A.D.
Iridium A.D.
We are Iridium. After establishing our current lineup in late 2015, our sound has become a Colorado Springs metal standard. Boasting heavy guitar riffs, intricate solos, earth moving bass, complex, rhythmic drums, and melodic clean vocals paired with screams/growls, we have become so much more than we could've imagined. We have often been compared to bands such as Killswitch Engage, Bullet For My Valentine, Breaking Benjamin, and Avenged Sevenfold! Our hopes for our future is that we can perform for audiences all across the country and eventually do well enough to make a living doing what we love. We are incredibly thankful for the amazing and supportive fan base we've built here in our hometown and we look forward to establishing that same connection with our fans all over the world. Send us a message or come hang out at a show, we're never too busy for our fans. Rock On. We are Iridium.

Against Himself
Against Himself
Formed in 2014 in Denver, Colorado, Against Himself fuse elements of rock and metal. Shortly after forming, they released a four-track self-titled EP, which exhibited their hard-hitting potential. Their celerity in recording their first EP exemplifies their focus on not over-complicating the equation by agonizing over obstacles. David Hunt, vocalist of Against Himself, explains, “If you want to achieve anything in life, the only true barrier to getting where you want to go is yourself. Just remove yourself from your own path and you won’t be working against yourself; you’ll likely achieve what you want to do. The only barriers that exist are the ones you allow to be there.” The band, never intimidated by the prospect of experimenting with their sound to continually create unique music, is true to their motto that “there is no failure, only a process of elimination, and trial and error.”

While not inherently a political band, Against Himself is not afraid to tackle political ideas and avoid the stereotypical rocknroll topics that ensure record sales but lack a message that would connect them with their audience. When describing the songwriting process, Hunt notes, “I like to talk about things that matter, things that most people avoid. Strippers and coke – they’re great, fuck yeah! But when you’re being robbed by your government and there’s shit going on that’s way bigger, sometimes there’s something that needs to be said. It’s hard to change the world, but the way we know how to do it is through music.”

The band’s eclectic influences – including Johnny Cash, Kiss, Led Zeppelin, Avenged Sevenfold, Lamb of God, Stone Temple Pilots, Chris Cornell, Blink 182, Machine Head, Pantera, and Amos Lee, to name a few – can be heard on their full-length album The Awakening, slated for release early next year. Dalen Buckalew, guitarist for Against Himself, says of their sound, “When you listen to our songs, you can hear that each song has a different musical influence, which makes every single song sound completely different. But what makes it sound like Against Himself is David’s voice.”

The Awakening – produced by the legendary Logan Mader of Once Human and Machine Head, and recorded in Las Vegas, NV – features 11 tracks with themes encompassing “the awakening of us, of reality, of people, of the world.” Regarding the meaning of their debut album’s title, Hunt says, “There is a major awakening going on and there’s going to be a revolution, it’s just not going to happen the way people imagine it will. It’s going to be based around social media, with the youth being more educated, making bigger and better decisions than the generation before them.” For David as a lyricist, the driving force behind the album’s theme is the ability to share a connection with the band’s audience. He explains, “I’m always the one holding up the show when a new song comes out because I don’t want to write something just to write it; I want it to be real. If every song is real, I will feel it on stage. Our fans watching will get more enjoyment out of it and will feel it as well. The energy connection will be much stronger.”

MGI rainmaker and guru, Shawn Barusch, says of MGI’s collaboration with Against Himself, “I’m excited to be working with a band that knows what’s going on and has the music to back it up. Expect big things to come from this band.” Rest assured that Against Himself will not disappoint – they will be “a parasitic plague of music seeping through everybody’s veins.”
