Watch Memphis May Fire frontman Matty Mullins battle himself in ‘The Old Me’

Over a month after treating fans to the first single off their forthcoming new album, Memphis May Fire have returned with the tune’s music video. On Wednesday (Nov. 7), the Texas-founded band unleashed the dark and gritty clip for their track, “The Old Me.” The video, which exclusively premiere on Revolver, finds frontman Matty Mullins fighting with himself as he tries to find a way back to his old self.

“The ‘Me vs. Me’ concept of this video represents my inner battle with anxiety and depression,” explains Mullins. “[It’s] the two versions of myself that are constantly at war with each other.”

“[I’m] trying to remember what life was like before I lived with the symptoms. Ultimately hoping to one day become that person — ‘The Old Me’ again.”
