Emmure launched a Patreon after hitting up fans about a weird fan club via Twiter direct messages. Then all of a sudden the Patreon went dark without explanation, and without delivering on promises to fans. Emmure vocalist Frankie Palmeri didn't initially address the disappearance of the Patreon, but now has done exactly that via Twitter.
"To the 40 people who signed up to the EMMURE patreon," said Palmeri via Twitter. "This has been a difficult year, for many reasons and it just became impossible to follow through with content. Shutting down the page became the ethical thing to do. We tried something and it failed. Sorry and thank you. Not sure what more there is to say. Try to practice having compassion and empathy. Good luck to you all. Peace."
No word on if fans, like the below fan who spoke to Lambgoat, will get a refund.
"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."
