Latest Emmure News
Below is our complete Emmure news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
My personal confessions are less about what I enjoy that would shred my credibility through a wood chipper and more about which bands I used to despise that I'd never talk shit about today. Namely, I used to really hate System of a Down, Iron Maiden, Behemoth and Chimaira. After only hearing a handful of songs from each, I decided that all were overrated before actually giving their discography a real chance.
Holy shit did I regret that later on after listening to Chimaira's self-titled album, Iron Maiden's “Powerslave”, “Zos Kia Cultus,” and the entirety of “Toxicity” (although I still maintain that “Chop Suey” has always been overrated and overplayed and I'm not a fan of the title track on “Resurrection”).
It's hard to look at yourself after talking shit about music that you were completely ignorant about. Eventually, I moved on to "Seventh Son of a Seventh Son,” “Resurrection,” and “Steal This Album” and realized that I was talking out my ass and sounded like one of those guys who calls eurodance “techno” but has never listened to speedcore or confuses hip-hop with R&B.

This year's edition of the German Summer Breeze festival will take place from August 15th - 17th, 2013. The organizers of the festival have now issued the following announcement about two bands dropping off the bill and being replaced by other groups:
"Unfortunately we have to inform you that Emmure and Nachtmystium have cancelled their appearance at Summer Breeze 2013. Our apologies to all those who were looking forward to seeing them. We will not rest until we can book the bands again for Summer Breeze in the years to come. The good news: We have already managed to find a replacement.
"Family reunion at Summer Breeze: Freddy Cricien, half brother of Agnostic Front singer and hardcore legend Roger Miret, will appear in Dinkelsbühl with his brutal troop Madball. The New York hardcore stalwarts are bringing loads of stage action and the heaviest of hardcore, so all you divers and moshpit enthusiasts out there better get ready! In top form – only recently they headlined the successful Rebellion Tour 2013 – Cricien and company will (hopefully!) deliver a selection of their discography's best songs. Although Madball always kill, no matter what they play! D'accord?!
"People like to call them avantgarde black metal, but the Mainz band isn't really comfortable with that label. Whatever you want to call them though, fact is Nocte Abdcuta will present their brand new album 'Umbriel (Das Schweigen zwischen den Sternen)' live at Summer Breeze 2013. All disciples of gloom can look forward to an uncompromising experimental show with a dense armosphere and a whole load of melancholy, but (hopefully) also an excursion into the German's brutal past. However, no matter which songs get played, no one will crawl back into their tents disappointed after the Nocte Abducta show in Dinkelsbühl."

We have been friends with them for quite some time now, and this is something we have always talked about doing, so it's awesome to see it finally come to light. Our first show ever was with Emmure in Nashville, TN before either of us were signed, so it's incredible to see how we have both grown so much in the music industry and are able to come together and put together this co-headlining tour!"
