About Emmure:
It's a respect issue; growing up in Queens, NY you either have to kill or be killed. Embracing this ideology, EMMURE has taken no prisoners and risen to the top of the metal scene. However, instead of taking out their aggressions in negative ways, they channeled their collective angst into their music to create a propulsive blend of unabashed aggression and intensity that the youth across the world embrace with open arms. They keep it simple and straight-forward. This straightforwardness, coupled with vocalist Frankie Palmeri's brutal openness and honesty creates a connection to fans on a level that few other bands can accomplish. Everyone has demons and dark sides to their lives, but this group shows that everyone deals with these types of issues and that there are productive ways to let it all out. EMMURE have gained the loyalty of the metal community and legions of rabid fans, but make no mistake- if you disrespect them, you will be left sleeping with the fishes.

EMMURE's fourth full-length release was produced by the acclaimed Joey Sturgis (The Devil Wears Prada, Asking Alexandria). This new effort promises to be their most cohesive, dynamic and utterly violent offering yet. Frankie Palmeri (vocals) states: «The new EMMURE record is definitely a major stepping stone for the band and our fans. We're entering a new realm of collective consciousness and we are trying to enter this new era of music and life with the people that support us. This is more than just a collection of songs; this is a message to the world.» Few bands around today are able to deliver a memorable and entertaining live show, but the performance is where EMMURE excels as they always aim to set a very high standard for themselves. It would suffice to say that the band experiences a transformation upon stepping on stage; they turn into a dominant beast that is out for blood, unleashing a frenzy of energy on the masses that cannot be contained. This is exactly why the band emerged from the Warped Tour 2010 as one of the festivals' most talked about acts. If you are a fan of heavy music and haven't seen a live EMMURE show, you are truly missing out.

EMMURE sets the standard for bringing together an emotionally unhinged blend of blistering hardcore and punishing death metal that appeals to a wide array of fans ranging from THE ACACIA STRAIN and SUICIDE SILENCE to DEFTONES and label-mates A DAY TO REMEMBER. They released Goodbye To The Gallows (2007) and The Respect Issue (2008) on Victory Records, but it was Felony (2009) that blew things wide open for the band as they truly began to hone their definitive sound that really connected with a worldwide audience. Motivated, EMMURE released their fifth full-length project, Slave to the Game, released April 10th, 2012, only one year after releasing Speaker of the Dead (2011). Delivering unapologetic lyrics, Slave to the Game embraced the video-game-loving side of the band, incorporating references to old school arcade favorites such as Street Fighter II, while still maintaining their rage-infused metal roots. Between powerfully low chugging, technical riffs and bone crushing drum work, the album provided metal fans with classic EMMURE sounds, while still able to openly experiment with tune and pitch effects.

Overtime, one thing has become overwhelmingly clear; you are either with EMMURE or against them. Frankie Palmeri has made a conscious effort to push as many buttons in the industry as possible and for some, his sarcastic, ironic humor is anything but charming. Never one to bite his tongue, Palmeri has made EMMURE a band that is as impossible to ignore as they are to forget. While we may never know what goes on inside of their heads, we do know that they won't rest until they have everyone's attention. Committed to touring, 2013 sent EMMURE across the world as they played at Eat Your Heart Out Festival, Groezrock, Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, Amnesia Rockfest, Summer Breeze Open Air Festival, Brutal Assault Fest, and headlined the Mosh Lives Tour, Impericon Festival, and Never Say Die! Festival.

With fists balled, knuckles white and heads down, EMMURE have remained pissed-off as ever for their upcoming album, Eternal Enemies, released on April 15th. Alternative Press weighed in, asserting «EMMURE's seemingly unquenchable rage remains intact, no matter what direction it's pointed in,» complimenting Eternal Enemies' «collections of pavement-saw riffs, jackhammer drumming, and fill-loosening squeals.»
