Christian Music News, New Christian Music News Matty Mullins, frontman of rising mainstream hardcore band Memphis May Fire, has announced his plans to release a self-titled solo Christian rock album September 23, 2014.

After early years of finding their footing amid lineup shifts and the search for a solid record deal, Memphis May Fire exploded onto hard rock stages helmed by Matty Mullins with their 2011 Rise Records debut The Hollow. The years following have seen Memphis May Fire on the Vans Warped Tour circuit as well as sharing prestigious space with bands like Sleeping With Sirens and Breathe Carolina. The 2013 release of sophomore album Challenger solidified the band's rock solid musical appeal, but also began to display increasing traces of Mullins' spiritual inclinations with songs like single "No Ordinary Love."

These themes precipitated the news of Mullins' solo release. In a recent interview with Alternative Press, he explained  "I was introduced to the scene through bands in the metalcore genre, and I've always loved that music. I'm grateful for everything we've done with Memphis May Fire. But I was also raised on Christian contemporary pop music. My mom started taking me to concerts when I was 6 or 7: Newsboys, Audio Adrenaline, MercyMe… Those are my deepest roots."

Fans have already gotten a taste of what his solo work will sound like with lead single "My Dear," an engaging and heartfelt piece exhibiting a softer side of Mullins' voice and a message about accepting God's unconditional love.

In his official bio, the hardcore icon expresses unabashed enthusiasm for his new project and dedication to the themes behind it. "The thing I'm most excited about with this record is that it's a blatant representation of my faith," Mullins states. "Nothing makes me feel stronger in my faith than sharing it with other people. The world is so hardened, it's hard to talk about your faith. But the more you speak encouragement into other people's lives, the more you tell them how Jesus fills the void in your life, that following Him isn't a 'task,' it's transforming and liberating… This record is blatantly about Jesus and who He is to me and who I know he can be for the world, a world that is hurting and looking for something bigger."

You can watch the lyric video for his lead single below. For more updates, stay tuned to his facebook page, twitter, and official website.
