Somehow we missed this, but in May, Emmure launched a Patreon. This was after they launched a shady fan club by DMing random fans on Twitter, and then shutting it down once sites such as ours started asking questions. They went the more legit route with Patreon. Six months later, the Emmure Patreon page has suddenly gone dark, without explaination.
Lambgoat reports speaking to multiple Patrons who claimed not getting the perks they were promised.
The anonymous Emmure fan noted to Lambgoat "I was on their top tier, which was meant to include a personalized welcome/thank you video, access to stems, access to vip ticket sales early, free tee, a video call with a member of the band of our choosing, a hand-written lyric sheet of a song of choice, early access to songs/videos, breakdowns and play-throughs of tracks. What we actually got is two video play-throughs and some poems from Frankie [Palmeri, vocalist]. I was on their Patreon for the 5 months they had it. I noticed that everything had vanished off their page without any warning but have still taken this month's subscription."
Palemri nor the band have publicly commented in over a month. Palmeri's most recent tweet, posted on September 16th says "Music is the only thing that gives my life purpose. Standing on stage, meeting people who vibe with my output, without these things I do not exist. I will reemerge healthier in mind, body and spirit when time allows. If I die before I get the chance to showcase this, thank you."
