Dallas based Memphis May Fire follow up with yet another new studio album, only a year after the previous "The hollow" (2011). What a creative band, I like it. Guitarist Ryan Bentley left the band and he´s been replaced by Anthony Sepe (ex.Decoder), the new album "Challenger" is their heaviest one so far but it also contains traces of electronica and more clean vocals. But you still get your share of screamo, don´t worry.
We also get guest performances from Kellin Quinn of Sleeping With Sirens on "Miles away" and Danny Worsnop of Asking Alexandria on "Losing sight" with additional vocals. The new single "Prove me right" is good but hardly one of the best tracks, I think "Alive in the lights", "Legacy" and "Generation:Hate" are all way stronger so I´m glad MMF has done their best album so far.
