Back in May Phil Labonte of All That Remains hinted at “doing something pretty cool” in the fall, and that turned out to be a co-headling tour with We Came As Romans on the HardDrive Live Fallout Tour, which starts in mid-October. Emmure were part of that tour package, but they’ve since had to drop off the tour entirely.
The band posted a statement on Facebook:
“We want to apologize 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 realized that we need to put more focus on other things we have going on in our personal lives at this time.”
Emmure had to cancel a European tour back in April, and even missed the Gathering of the Juggalos this summer because of the health of vocalist Frankie Palmeri. He suffered a “major tear” to his vocal cords back in February, when out with Suicide Silence, and it seems he’s been on the mend ever since. That Emmure would say they need to “focus on other things we have going on in our personal lives” sounds pretty serious.
