It was back in February, while on tour with Suicide Silence, when Emmure vocalist Frankie Palmeri had to cancel a show because of a, “major tear in (his) vocal chords.” The band carried on, however, and Palmeri returned to the stage a short time later, but rested his vocal cords by not singing.
Now Emmure is canceling “The Mosh Lives Tour,” their European tour with Caliban, Thy Art Is Murder, and Sworn In which was set to start in May. The announcement came from the band’s Facebook account:
“Due to unfortunate circumstances, we must cancel our upcoming EU/UK touring plans with Caliban, Thy Art Is Murder and Sworn In due to Frankie’s still yet to be determined healing process. He has severe acute and chronic reflux laryngitis and a weak (partially paralyzed) left vocal cord.”
Palmeri posted on Twitter, “This is going to be a lengthy road to recovery,” but with this downtime the band said they’ll focus on writing a new album, a follow-up to 2014s Eternal Enemies.
