Memphis May Fire are premiering an acoustic version of fan favorite “Beneath The Skin” today here:
The track is one of 4 bonus tracks that appear on the upcoming Deluxe Edition of the band’s latest LP ‘Unconditional’, which will be released this Friday.
In addition to the acoustic version of “Beneath The Skin,” the LP features the new tracks “My Generation”, “Stay The Course” and an acoustic version of “Need To Be.” The music video for “Stay The Course” can be viewed here.
Guitarist Kellen McGregor says, “It’s always enjoyable to reimagine songs acoustically as we’re primarily a band that writes heavy music with a lot of riffing. ‘Need To Be’ made sense to choose considering it’s already a softer track from “Unconditional” & lends itself nicely to an acoustic interpretation. Reworking ‘Beneath The Skin’ was a fun challenge due to its heavier nature, but the process was very rewarding & it turned out more amazing than we could have possibly imagined.”
The Deluxe Edition was remixed & remastered by Brian Hood (Being As An Ocean, Sworn In) at 456 Recordings.
“Unconditional” debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 and at #1 on the Hard Music, Rock and Independent charts, back in March 2014.
Memphis May Fire is currently drawing record crowds as one of the headliners on this summer’s Vans Warped Tour and will follow that up with a tour of Australia, Japan, Europe and the UK this fall. The band is also confirmed to play Warped Tour UK on October 18 in London, alongside Black Veil Brides, Asking Alexandria, August Burns Red and many more.
On July 22, the band will be presenters at the 2nd Annual Alternative Press Music Awards in Cleveland, OH, where drummer Jake Garland is also nominated in the ‘Best Drummer’ category.
