Memphis May Fire and We Came As Romans Launch The Bands Vs. Food Co-Headline Tour


Memphis May Fire and We Came As Romans are teaming up for the co-headline Bands Vs. Food Tour which kicks off April 26 and runs through May 21. Joining the bands on the trek are Miss May I and For Today.

VIP Ticket pre-sale launches on Thursday, March 10 at 12pm ET. General admission tickets will go on sale Friday, March 11 at 10am local time.

Both Memphis May Fire and We Came As Romans share a passion for all things food & this Spring they’ll be visiting local restaurants in each market before hitting the stage.

In connection with the tour’s theme, fans are encouraged to hit up WCAR & MMF via social media to recommend their favorite local dining spots near each venue & those who purchase a VIP Package will join the bands for a catered meal from the chosen restaurant in addition to receiving unique merchandise items / special perks.

Additionally, the tour will feature specialized video updates from each city that include restaurant reviews, VIP party footage & live performance content. Expect to see all of the bands on the tour as well as the fans themselves involved in these updates.

Memphis May Fire frontman Matty Mullins says, “We’ve been talking about doing a tour like this with WCAR for ages. Finally, our schedules aligned & it’s happening! With Miss May I & For Today also on the bill, this package is stacked! All great bands & all great friends of ours. I believe this will be one of 2016’s most exciting tours. See ya there!”

Dave Stephens of We Came As Romans adds, “After years of talking about doing a run together, I’m glad Memphis May Fire and us have finally made it happen. We’ve been close with the other bands on the tour since the beginning of our careers, and I have no doubt it will be nothing but an amazing time. Get your tickets quick cause this is a tour you won’t want to miss!”

Memphis May Fire have been hard at work on the follow up to their massively successful 2014 Rise Records LP, ‘Unconditional,’ which debuted at #4 on Billboard’s Top 200 and #1 on the Alternative Albums chart.

For the new album, the band has enlisted producer Matt Good (From First To Last, Blessthefall, The Word Alive) with Cameron Mizell (For All Those Sleeping, Myka Relocate, Sleeping With Sirens) handling vocal production duties.

The forthcoming effort was recently selected as one of the ‘Most Anticipated Albums’ of 2016 by the editors of Alternative Press.

Starting this month, the Nashville, TN-based rockers will serve as direct support on Killswitch Engage’s headline tour. Offering additional support is 36 Crazyfists & Toothgrinder. Tickets for those shows are on sale now.
