Emmure forced to cancel European tour

Posted by on April 13, 2015

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.

Caliban has announced that the entire tour is cancelled, and Sworn In posted, “This is the last thing we wanted to do especially with our new record coming out.”
