Emmure cancel tour to 'focus on other things'

Emmure have pulled out of a US tour that starts later this month.

They’d been set to appear on the bill with All That Remains and We Came As Romans – but say they’ve decided they need to concentrate on situations outside the band.

It follows a series of cancellations earlier this year as frontman Frankie Palmeri suffered health issues.

Emmure say: “We want to apologise to All That Remains, We Came As Romans, the fans, promoters and anyone behind the scenes that is involved for having to pull off the HardDrive Live Fallout tour.

“On our recent trip to the UK and Russia, we’ve realised that we need to put more focus on other things we have going on in our personal lives at this time.”

They’ve been replaced by Like Moths To Flames and Devour The Day. The tour begins as planned in Michigan on October 14.

Emmure cancelled a European tour in April after Palmeri tore a vocal cord, and later pulled out of an appearance at the Gathering Of The Juggalos festival, saying he still hadn’t fully recovered.

Emmure’s last studio release was 2014’s Eternal Enemies.
