Just last week (June 26), Dallas, Texas metalcore quintet Memphis May Fire released Challenger, their third full-length album. Produced by Cameron Mizell (A Skylit Drive, For All Those Sleeping) and Kellen McGregor, the 11-track album features guest appearances by Sleeping with Sirens' Kellin Quinn and Asking Alexandria's Danny Worsnop. Challenger is the band's follow up to 2011's acclaimed The Hollow, which landed at #1 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart and at #109 on the Top 200.

Memphis May Fire is currently out in support of Challenger as part of this year's Warped Tour. Since he has an insider's look at the traveling punk rock festival, Noisecreep asked frontman Matty Mullins for a list of five artists you shouldn't miss on Warped this year.

Sleeping With Sirens

Lyndsey Byrnes

"I've watched them grow so much over the past few years and along with Kellin being my best friend, he's also one of my favorite performers to watch live."

Every Time I Die

Epitaph Records

"They have been very influential to me over the years and even though this years Warped crowd might not be as ETID heavy as years past, they still have a live show that EVERYONE can enjoy."

Falling in Reverse

Jon Weiner

"I am fairly new to their music, but it's obvious that they're doing something right because every time I've watched them live the energy their crowds bring forth is mind-blowing."

Pierce the Veil

Fearless Records

"I've started to become good friends with Vic throughout the course of Warped Tour. It truly is an honor to be able to see them play live every day because they're one of the only bands in the scene today that give 100% each and every day."

Born of Osiris

Sumerian Records

"Progressive metal is one of the hardest styles of music to pull off live especially while providing a tasteful show. BOO is one of the only bands in the genre that I've been pleased with live. NO ONE should miss them on the Ernie Ball stage this summer."

Memphis May Fire's new album, Challenger, is available now via Rise Records. Catch the band out on the Warped Tour at one of the following cities below.
