"Our third single of the year, 'Bleed Me Dry,' is my favorite yet," explains Mullins. "It's an anthem for anyone feeling beaten down by the negative voices around them. We're so excited to announce that we will be donating 100% of the proceeds from the 'In Your Eyes' tee in our online merch store to one of our favorite non-profits — Heart Support! Every year, Heart Support helps men and women brave their wounds, find purpose, and discover healing. I am so stoked for everyone to hear this song and get involved with a great cause!"
"Bleed Me Dry" follows the one-two punch of the explosive tracks "Blood & Water" and "Death Inside," all of which have been released via longtime label Rise Records. The former is one of the fastest growing hits of the Memphis May Fire's career, accompanied by a powerful video while cruising onto the SiriusXM Octane airwaves. Revolver called it a "return to form" and noted that the song boasted an "absurdly melodic lead lick that cuts through the chugging breakdowns like a hot knife on butter." Meanwhile, the latter will remind fans of the band's sonic heft and is evidence of why Memphis May Fire have remained one of the scene's standouts.
Together, the two new tracks have accumulated over 10 million streams combined across platforms.
