Memphis May Fire Revisit ’80s Hair Metal in ‘The Rose’ Video
Your eyes aren't deceiving you. While the video for Memphis May Fire's new single "The Rose" may look like it came from the '80s, it's very much a present day clip.
In the video, the band is decked out in '80s hair metal fashion, complete with bandanas, scarves on the microphone stand and most noticeably -- the big hairspray-fed coifs made famous by the rockers of the '80s. Adding to the look is the appearance that the clip is shot on videotape that is having some tracking and wear issues.
Frontman Matty Mullins appears to be having a blast, getting a chance to join his bandmates in a bit of booty wiggling before doing a little crowd surfing. But as stated, though the video could pass for the '80s, the sound of "The Rose" is most definitely brutal modern day heaviness.
The song follows on the heels of "No Ordinary Love," "Sleepless Nights" and "Beneath the Skin." All four of the tracks are featured on the Unconditional album. The disc is currently available via Amazon and iTunes. Look for Memphis May Fire on tour into early April. Dates can be found here.
