Listen to the New Emmure Song ‘Russian Hotel Aftermath’, “Look At Yourself” Album Coming Early 2017


emmureband_2016promoMetalcore heavy hitters Emmure will release their new album, titled “Look At Yourself”, in early 2017. The follow-up to the 2014’s “Eternal Enemies” marks Emmure‘s first release with SharpTone Records.

To give listeners a taste of what they can expect from “Look At Yourself”, Emmure has released another new song off the album, ‘Russian Hotel Aftermath’, which can be streamed below.

“Look At Yourself” represents a coming of age for Emmure, a new chapter in an aggressive autobiography that stretches back to the band’s very first album, released when vocalist Frankie Palmeri was barely out of his teens. It’s infused with a brutal self-examination and observation, balancing hate, bile and perseverance, with the tempered experience of a life spent in pursuit of self-reliance and respect, from within and without. It’s expressed in a crushing cacophony of riffs that never fail to super-serve the forward-motion groove of Emmure.

The new lineup of Emmure made its live debut on April 22 in Oberhausen, Germany. Joining vocalist Frankie Palmeri in the band’s latest incarnation are guitarist Josh Travis (Glass Cloud, ex-The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza), bassist Phil Lockett (ex-The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza) and drummer Josh Miller (ex-Glass Cloud).

Emmure pulled out of a series of U.S. shows in October last year “to focus on other things,” which was then followed by bassist Mark Davis, lead guitarist Jesse Ketive, rhythm guitarist Mike Mulholland and drummer Adam Pierce leaving the band. Davis later told about his departure from the group: “There is no time or room for negativity in life. If someone is bringing you down or holding you back from your full potential, it’s time to cut them out, no matter how much you may love them.”

Palmeri released a statement earlier in the year in which he said he regretted saying “a lot of stupid shit” in the past. He said: “Over the years, specifically the last decade, I have done a pretty good job at painting myself as an egotistical, psychotic, moronic douche. I did and said a lot of stupid shit, a good portion of which I look back [on] with embarrassment and regret. I have grown so much as person and I like to think there is still chance for people to understand that everyone grows differently and at their own pace. I am still growing, but I am not the person people have made me out to be. I look forward to reconnecting with all the fans who have stuck with EmmureE through the years and just over all excited about the future.”

Emmure‘s last full-length album, “Eternal Enemies”, was released in April 2014 via Victory Records.
