While most of the metal world has slowed down, news-wise, it's been an eventful week for Emmure. We learned on Tuesday that every member of the band quit with the exception of vocalist Frankie Palmeri. Now-former bassist Mark Davis revealed that it was a whole lot of negativity that caused the rift and the remaining members are looking to form a new band.
But what about Frankie? Well, it turns out he'll be just fine. Frankie released a new statement saying he already has a new lineup locked in and they're finishing up a new record and planning to tour:
Well I think I have left you all waiting in suspense long enough. I want to first start out by saying the amount of positive support I have gotten since this news broke has been incredible , and I am so thankful to have so many true fans stand behind me during this time. As far as the future goes I am happy to tell you all that this is not the end of EMMURE.
There is in fact a new line up right now and we are currently working on a new studio album. Details about all of that will come to light as the weeks and month progress , but do know that there is something to look forward to. You can expect us to be making up for lost time next year as we start our first tour dates in Europe and will eventually make our way back to the USA near the end of 2016. Also know that we will embark on many other international stops so if you are reading this anywhere in the world you can expect to see us at some point next year.
Thank you all so much for your love and support.
I am curious how Emmure fans feel about this. Will it still be the same? Does anybody still care? I guess we'll find out next year.
