Interview by Natalie Perez - November, 2009

Interview with vocalist Frankie Palmeri.

Now that the summer has drawn itself to a close and its winter time, how was it to be a part of the Thrash and Burn tour?

It felt like one of the strongest tours weve ever been on.

What is your main goal you wish to accomplish with Emmure?

Hurt people.

Let's talk about 'Felony' What are your thoughts on the album?

I have alot of thoughts on it..I also have alot of thoughts off of it... you get it?

Do you have any personal favorites off the album?

Yeah but it's personal.
 
How has The Hardknock Life Tour been treating everybody, getting along with the other acts, have any favorite cities/venues?

It's been quite the journey , sometimes shit is crazy , sometimes shit is not so crazy , and we're always having a good time.

With all the tours you've been a part of what has been the most memorable tour moment you've experienced?

To narrow 4 years of touring down to one event would be preposterous ... but i'd like to say the culmination of events as a whole have really opened my eyes to the way of the world... and it's a beautiful and disgusting place.

When will we be seeing new material from Emmure, have anything written up yet?

You'll see it when we show you... and yes... we're always writing.

A young fan comes up to you and tells you your music has moved them and they want to become a musician like you. What advice would you give them?

Don't be a musician like me , do whatever it is that feels good and stick with it.

Is being in Emmure therapeutic for you? How does being in the band make you feel as a human being?

Music is not therapeutic for me... being in this band has given me the power to prove that selflessness still exists... I am not on stage yelling because it heals me... but it seems to heal others... so that keeps me going.

Who are some of the major influences that always have you say "This is why I'm standing here".
 
Fred Durst , Jonathan Davis ... my mother and all the disappointments I have felt in my short life.

While out on the road, which band member goes the longest without showering?
 
I'll just go ahead and say me , cause I really don't care about other people's hygene.

Your video for ‘False Love In Real Life,’ how’d you come up with the concept?

I love partying... and I love strobe lights.

Do you have anything to say to the fans of Emmure?

It's our turn to wreck someone's life.

Chugga Chugga choo choo, hop on the EMMURE train, bro!  Well, the band's latest Victory Records release, Felony, is out and about, but nothing is special about it.  Felony is filled with generic and overused riffs, way too many chugs, and lyrics any dumb tough guy could write.  But if EMMURE is doing one thing right, they've got one hell of a fan base.  The kids (hipsters) love EMMURE, and with the smart marketing and imagery of Felony, the release has gone onto selling almost 12,000 copies in the first 2 weeks, and still rising rapidly.  Those are great numbers for a metal release, by the way.  See, we all know by now that music doesn't sell an...
