As I Lay Dying’s Tim Lambesis commented:

“I’m incredibly grateful to have a chance to go back out on tour and for the tremendous support we‘ve had on the ‘Shaped By Fire‘ touring cycle so far. When I started As I Lay Dying I never imagined we’d have a chance to travel the world as we have, and now we’ll be going back to places that feel like a second home at times. The band has been such an important part of my life personally, so it is very meaningful to see our music connect with so many other people as well.”

Phil Sgrosso added:

“It’s a huge milestone for the band to reach the 20-year mark, something which couldn’t have been done without the support and encouragement from our fans. We feel that it is our responsibility to them to keep pushing ourselves in providing better music and a better live show.

That is why we are looking to go bigger than we ever have before with our stage production as well as curating a live setlist that will span and highlight pinnacle moments from the band’s career. We are excited to return to the stage to celebrate this monumental occasion and hope to see many familiar faces in the crowd.

Big thanks to Impericon for having us as this year’s festival headliner as well as Dying Fetus and Emmure for joining us on the trek.”

Emmure Drop Off Rebel Rock Festival

Emmure will no longer be performing at the 2021 Rebel Rock festival. That event will take place at the Central Florida Fairgrounds in Orlando, FL on September 23-26. Emmure commented:

“It is unfortunate to announce but we will not be taking part in this years ‘Rebel Rock‘ festival. I think it’s obvious to most that these are uncertain times so we hope people understand and we look forward to reconnecting with fans again in the future. Be well. – E”

Drummer Josh Miller Exits Emmure

Drummer Josh Miller has officially exited Emmure. A replacement has yet to be revealed.

Miller said the following:

“It is with heavy heart that I will be stepping down from Emmure. I have been with my dudes for almost 5 years now. Some of the best years of my life. I’ve been all over the world, met so many new friends, and have had memories you can never get anywhere else.

I am so grateful for Frankie, for bringing us along on this amazing journey and being a great friend to me and always looking out for us. I am so grateful for Josh for always being my big brother and inspiring me to the max on a daily basis. Josh changed my life in so many ways as a musician and always pushed me to be better and do better and I’ll hold that with me forever. He is hands down the most talented person I’ve ever met in my life. No one like him.

I am grateful to all the fans that welcomed me with warm hearts and showed me love and support. without you guys it’s not possible. this isn’t the end of me playing drums or not seeing all of you again. just a new chapter. see you all soon.”

Emmure Share Previously Unreleased Song “Sons Of Medusa”

Emmure have shared a previously unreleased song titled “Sons Of Medusa.” The band said the following about that:

“To celebrate the 1 year anniversary of ‘HINDSIGHT’ we present to you this unused track from that recording session. This was going to potentially be the introduction to the album, but we’re glad to be able to share it with you all now…. EMMURE – ‘Sons Of Medusa'”

Emmure Premiere Animated Video For “Thunder Mouth”

Emmure have premiered an animated video for their song “Thunder Mouth.“ This track is from the band’s latest album “Hindsight,“ which will be receiving a physical release tomorrow (July 24). Director Frankie Nasso said the following about the video:

“We wanted to create a world that closely reflects the themes and layers of the Emmure mythology- from gritty underground street culture to otherworldly, nightmarish possibilities. Frankie Palmeri is the perfect anime antihero, a complex character who deals with real emotions in a mind-bending universe where anything can happen. We had so much fun creating this manga-inspired video with talented artists from four different countries, and we hope to expand this story into a continuing series of animated projects in the future.”

Emmure Premiere New Song “Uncontrollable Descent”, Reveal Details For New Album “Hindsight”

Emmure have premiered a new song titled “Uncontrollable Descent.” This track is from the band’s new album “Hindsight,” which will be released on June 26.

Frankie Palmeri commented:

“The label asked me to attach a quote about the new album and this new single so that there can be some words to chew on as this press release goes out. I am not sure what to say. I simply hope the fans enjoy the song as much as we do and look forward to the full album releasing this year. Beyond that, I don’t believe in explaining what the music is supposed to be about. In fact, I consider it creatively bankrupt to rob people of a chance to experience, dissect and create their own unique ownership of what a song potentially represents to them. I want people to hear the music and take away whatever feeling they want.

If an artist is outright telling you why a song or album was written, not only do I personally find it pretentious, but they might as well spoon feed you your meals and pick out your clothes for you, since you’re clearly incapable of thinking for yourself. What makes explaining it even worse than what I already mentioned, is that the message within is literally and figuratively already spelled out for you, so if you can’t figure it out or at the very least surmise your own explanation, then you’re better off just reading a dictionary if you’re too lazy discover the meaning in something for yourself.”

Emmure Launch Official Patreon

Emmure have launched an official Patreon. Fans that sign up will receive a number of exclusives from the band.

The group said the following:

“If you’re reading this, then it means this band means something to you. Maybe it’s just the tunes you play when hitting the gym, your morning route playlist, the songs you put on when the stress of life has become too much to take on without the proper soundtrack, the list goes on. EMMURE has always, will always be solely about the music, but beyond that, none of this would matter, exist or amount to much with out the fans who have continued to support the albums, the live shows, the merchandise ETC..

So the time has come for us, all of us, to adapt. With what is happening in the world, we have unfortunately been stifled in our conquest to connect with the people that mean the most to us, our fans. This Patreon page, is our chance to rebuild that bridge between us and those who have through thick and thin, the changing of winds and unpredictable trends, continue to put EMMURE in their musical zeitgeist.

You’re still reading this? Good. Let’s get to the fun part. We have a lot to share with you all. Interesting, behind the scenes, exclusive and rare content that we have been sitting on, unsure about when the right time to share with you all what has been a almost 20 years history. This engagement, your subscription, will give you access to a ton of different things, exclusive merchandise, fan perks, opportunities to dive even deeper in to the discography, lyrics, music, everything.

This is simply the beginning. Will you take the next step with us?
