Following the damage inflicted on frontman Frankie Palmeri‘s vocal cords towards the end of February, Emmure have now been forced to cancel their upcoming headline UK/European tour run next month with Caliban, Thy Art Is Murder and Sworn In. You can read a statement from the band below:
“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. We appreciate the support we received on the last tour with Suicide Silence in Frankie’s absence, at this time we are going to put our focus towards writing a new album while he recovers and we hope to see you all very soon. – E”
There has been no word yet as whether or not this will see the band pull from Slam Dunk Festival, or if the dates will be rescheduled. More news on this will be confirmed as and when it develops.
We at DEAD PRESS! hope that Frankie has a speedy recovery.
