Emmure’s Frankie Palmeri Suffers ‘Major Tear’ in Vocal Cords
Emmure frontman Frankie Palmeri has suffered a “major tear” in his vocal cords. The singer posted the news on the band’s Facebook page, stating that his injury was the reason Emmure had to miss their show Tuesday night (Feb. 24) in Fort Collins, Colo.
The band is currently on the Stronger Than Faith tour with Suicide Silence, Within The Ruins and Fit For An Autopsy, with gigs scheduled for the next five nights in a row. In Palmeri's Facebook post, he says his injury may cause the band to also miss its gig tonight in Colorado Springs (Feb. 25), but didn’t mention any shows after that.
It's with a heavy heart I must inform you EMMURE will not be performing at The Aggie Theatre in Fort Collins tonight [Feb.24]. (And possibly tomorrow night [Feb. 25]) I experienced a major tear in my vocal cords and my only chance in finishing the tour is to sacrifice getting to see all of our supporters tonight. I am already on my way to quick recovery and once again deeply apologize for anyone let down by the news. We love you all...this does not put the breaks on our current or future obligations but..I am human..these things happen.
Emmure and the rest of the bands kicked off the trek on Feb. 17 and are scheduled to hit a bunch of U.S. cities through March 26, when they wrap things up in Tucson, Ariz. Late last month, Emmure unveiled the music video for their latest single, “A Gift a Curse,” off of their highest charting effort to date, Eternal Enemies, which they released last April.
