Emmure Announces New Drummer Mark Costillo, Working On New Album

Emmure is currently holed up once again with acclaimed producer Joey Sturgis (Asking Alexandria, The Devil Wears Prada) tracking a new album. The group is also excited to officially announce that this new effort will also be the first to feature new drummer, Mark Costillo (ex-Between The Buried And Me, Bury Your Dead).

Jesse (guitars) states: “Mark Costillo has been a good friend for a few years now. Mark approached us as he heard through the grapevine that EMMURE needed a helping hand, so at that point I chatted with him about possibly recording our new CD and playing some shows.

"After jamming the set a few times we all decided that Mark was the perfect fit for us and undoubtedly should be our new drummer. He is the upmost professional and his work on the new effort in going to really help us bring everything to another level. Everyone better watch out."

Be sure to visit Emmure's Facebook for any additional information, studio news, photos, and to view all tour dates for the upcoming North American tour with We Came As Romans this spring.

According to Sabian, Wikipedia and Google suggestions, it's spelled Mark Castillo. Not trying to bust balls, just pointing it out.

He was also in Crossfade!

Doubtful. More like my constant cries of BTBAM being overrated are actually going to be picked up on by others.
