Scraping Genius Off The Wheel

NEVERMIND THE BOLLOCKS, HERE’S A TEASER FOR THE NEW EMMURE ALBUM

250

Fuck. Yes. Though it’s not even a minute long, the above sample from Emmure’s forthcoming Speaker Of The Dead LP enhances my excitement for one of the most anticipated hardcore albums of 2011. Due out February 15, it promises to be the opposite of a Valentine’s Day present: a shiner instead of a bouquet. A digital single entitled “Demons With Ryu” will be out next week via iTunes. If you’re as stoked as me, you can pre-order the album here. The following month, Emmure will support this new record on the road with Asking Alexandria, Chiodos, and Miss May I, though given their propensity for touring I suspect these are just the first of several dates the band will play this year.

In related news, frontman Frankie Palmeri, whom I interviewed this past summer, has just dropped the debut full-length from like-minded deathcore act Monsters on his own label False Prophet Records. Tour dates for Emmure and Monsters, respectively, are below the cut.
