Forming in the early 90s, Every Mother’s Nightmare is no stranger to the music scene. After quickly arriving on the Memphis rock scene, word spread about their energy-packed live performances gaining them the attention of Clive Davis (Arista Records). After signing with Arista, EMN became staples on MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball with their music videos for “Walls Came Down”, “Love Can Make You Blind”, and “House of Pain”. In mid-2015 EMN released a highly anticipated EP titled Grind recorded with Justin Rimer at CrossTrax Studio in Memphis,TN. Grind includes the first single "Loco Crazy" which features a guest appearance by Zach Myers of Shinedown on guitar with a companion video. The EP also features Wayne Swinny of Saliva on guitar in the opening track titled "Snake".Every Mother’s Nightmare is currently touring the U.S. having recently played M3 Rock Festival (Columbia, MD) and Rock Fest (Cadott, WI).

"We weren't playing around with this record or this band! We wanted to be straight up, honest & in your face with our lives, the record & the rest of the world...and I think we've done just that.", says Cole, the frontman for the 5 piece rock & roll band that's based out of Memphis, TN.
With the same struggles that every band faces; from grinding city to city & paying "the dues" to member changes and style adjustments...The guys in STF continued to "push the outside of the envelope", says Cole (a memorable concept from the old film, "The Right Stuff") in order to create a sound, stage show performance & an overall reputation all their own.
After years of playing shows, DIY touring and being a self-motivated machine, STF joined efforts with Luis Bacardi & the RUMBUM team to push the band to the next level. Soon after showcasing in front of the label for the Official Lollapalooza Afterparty in Chicago, IL,(@ Hard Rock Hotel Chicago) plans were being made for the long awaited, full length STF debut.
STF headed to SONIC RANCH STUDIOS for 5 1/2 weeks to immortalize the album material that would later be titled "BURN IN THE SPOTLIGHT", meaning "get to the place you've always wanted to be in life (your personal spotlight) and fight to stay there!" They teamed up with John Galt Entertainment's Jeffery Pringle (producer) artist/producer Lennon Murphy (of the bands Lennon & Devils Gift) Scotty Smith (producer) & Frank Shooflar (producer) & began production on the record. "Between the strong lyric & vocal melodies and the solid overall work ethic that these guys have, the chemistry was just what we needed to make this record what it has become," says Lennon Murphy, Co-Producer.
This record encompasses everything that we have lived and learned throughout the years. We wanted to capture the intensity of the live show and give you guys "our spin" on life and what it's like to win, lose, love, hate, fuck, fight and feel. It's only our interpretation so feel free to love it or hate it!! For those of you that love it, WE LOVE YOU!!! And those that hate it...plug your ears...we aren't going anywhere for a while!
