Acacia Strain, Emmure singers trade blows
Monday, September 14, 2009 9:10 AM PT
We couldn't possibly NOT post something about this, so please forgive us. While we're at it, fuck Kanye West, and long live Erik Estrada.
Anyway, many of you know that The Acacia Strain and Emmure are not too fond of each other. Well, the inevitable outcome of a hardcore beef is usually a hardcore anticlimax. But in this case, The Acacia Strain frontman Vincent Bennett and Emmure frontman Frankie Palmeri really did have some sort of an altercation at an Emmure show in Clifton Park, NY last night. Of course, we'll probably never know the true story unless it was captured on video, but we've received various accounts of the incident, some with Bennett prevailing, and others with Palmeri victorious. Here are some highlights:
9/13/2009 8:42 PM
"Vincent from the acacia strain and frankie from emmure just beat each other bloody backstage at northern lights for the hard knock life tour. Vincent seems to be fine while frankie was rushed away by security" - anonymous source
9/13/2009 11:02:07 PM
"Tonight At Northern Lights In Clifton Park NY, Vincent from The Acacia Strain showed up to squash his beef with Frankie from Emmure. Instead of peace ensuing, a fight broke out between the two of them and frankie pulled brass knucks on Vincent. Both held there own and ended up bloody as hell. This was the fight everyones been waiting to happen." - anonymous source
9/13/2009 11:09 PM
"The internet is abuzz. Did i get beat up? Nope! Did i hang the fuck out? Yes!" - Vincent Bennett, via Twitter
9/13/2009 11:10 PM
"Vincent showed up to an Emmure headline show in Albany tonight at Northern Lights calling out Frankie asking if he had a problem with him and Frankie proceeded to punch him in the face and the two scuffled for a few minutes. Vincent had his glasses busted into his face and after a few minutes the fight was over with Vincent shaking Franks hand not once but twice claiming the beef is over." - label source
9/14/2009 10:37 AM
"So the guys in TAS showed up at the show in NY last night so that Vincent could talk to Frankie from Emmure and settle their issues for good. Frankie walked out and sucker punched Vincent and got ahold of him and was punching him in the head. Vincent was just laughing though and wouldn't hit him back. Frankie tried to put knuckles on but Vincent ripped them off and they scuffled a little bit but then got up and shook hands. And as far as what's on the message boards, I guess it was Emmure's merch girl who got on Lambgoat saying that Vincent was all bloody, but all he had a cut on his cheek." - Acacia Strain band member
9/14/2009 12:45 PM
"Really though. We traded blows. That's it. We shook hands and ended it. As far as i am concerned the 'beef' between us is done." - Vincent Bennett, via Twitter

9/14/2009 9:45:06 AM
wow frankie way to bite the hand that feeds you. if acacia strain wasn't a band then who else would you copy your sound from?
9/14/2009 9:46:34 AM

BEST FUCKING NEWS ALL YEAR ON LAMBGOAT
9/14/2009 10:11:43 AM
Bahahahahaha. About time, if it's true. Vincent is better than Frankie by far but both bands had it coming.
9/14/2009 10:17:59 AM
Actually, what I'm trying to say is that Emmure had it coming. TAS is sooo much better but they could have handled it a little more maturely? I dunno. Whatever. I laughed. That is all.
9/14/2009 10:22:30 AM
they need to fight again tonight for youtube to prove it
9/14/2009 10:31:46 AM
I like how the "label source" was the least objective quote of all.
9/14/2009 10:32:05 AM
The label source is ridiculous...once you read it you know its bull. They are just trying to protect the artist that makes a lot of money for them.
9/14/2009 10:33:07 AM
i agree they need to fight again and put it on youtube throw them in an octagon with no gloves no ref fight to the death hopefully they both die
9/14/2009 10:57:56 AM
i wish vincent would have pulled a gun on frankie and then sent him to hell. that would make the world a better place.
9/14/2009 11:03:44 AM
emmure is gonna get robbed one day & it will be funny.
9/14/2009 11:06:54 AM
pics or it didn't happen
9/14/2009 11:09:54 AM
They stripped me naked had me lift my ballsack up so they could check underneath it, and then had me bend over and spread my asscheeks apart so they could look inside my asshole
9/14/2009 11:09:56 AM
9/14/2009 11:11:09 AM
bahahahahahahahahahahaha! Best news to start my day! 2 douchebags have at it that I hate with a passion!
9/14/2009 11:18:22 AM
Even if Vincent did happen to get a punch in or 2, which i doubt, It still wont change the fact that his Band sucks and does shot ass tours.
9/14/2009 11:19:05 AM
impending doom is NOT stoked!
9/14/2009 11:52:26 AM
TAS is a much better band and that dude on vocals for Emmure looks like a douche to me and I hate the name Frankie. It's supposed to be a tough version of the name Frank. I never understood it.
9/14/2009 11:54:01 AM
Vincent is a freaking huge guy. He wins by default
9/14/2009 11:56:15 AM
and so it begins...the Civil War of dissonant chord-worshipping scenester fuckheads. this is the proverbial Mason-Dixon Line of gayry. can't wait for fights to break out at shows regarding which of these shit bands is more ''br00tal.''
9/14/2009 12:02:28 PM
Burn face. TAS FTW.
9/14/2009 12:24:08 PM
BATTLE OF THE NOBODYS!
9/14/2009 12:29:05 PM
FRANKIE SMASHED VINCENT - I WAS THERE, FUCK ANYONE WHO SAYS DIFFERENT.
9/14/2009 12:50:07 PM
Squash your beef.
9/14/2009 12:58:40 PM
Spare me your 15 fame. The need to make a name. All the bullshit said When you're dead you stay dead. Crush all fakes.
9/14/2009 1:03:38 PM
emmanure is gay
9/14/2009 1:06:12 PM
2 gay frontment, of 2 gay bands get in a fight, one looks like a gorilla while the other looks like a nerd on growth hormones, die
9/14/2009 1:14:44 PM
I actually really like both bands. Emmure's new one is their best yet. However, I totally think Emmure ripped Acacia Strains sound. and maybe Vincent feels the same way?
9/14/2009 1:15:16 PM
9/14/2009 1:18:11 PM
PWOOOOOOOOOO I'M BAMBI!

9/14/2009 1:30:26 PM
Done and over with. Lets get some tas and emmure colab project going to sound exactly like both bands.
9/14/2009 1:30:43 PM
I guess it was just a RESPECT ISSUE. *quietly chuckle at Emmure joke*
9/14/2009 1:31:24 PM
This is probably all staged and scripted just like the Kanye shit. Clever guys, clever.
9/14/2009 2:25:28 PM
unit movement must be slowing down.
9/14/2009 2:40:47 PM
Fuck 'em both.

9/14/2009 3:11:00 PM

9/14/2009 3:13:57 PM
The Kayne thing was stagged?
9/14/2009 3:14:04 PM
I am impressed that so far nobody has said "emmure should be on this"
9/14/2009 3:14:57 PM
yo bros, keep the beef in the pit yo
9/14/2009 3:15:06 PM
*wonders if they shared a much needed clover afterward*
9/14/2009 3:16:29 PM
Vincent doesn't fuck around; and I would be pissed too if a band straight ripped my bands sound off and ran with it. Fuck all of you shit talkers
9/14/2009 3:16:42 PM

9/14/2009 3:26:52 PM
im 40 minutes from this venue. fuck. either way this is something i don't think anyone really cares about.
9/14/2009 3:36:20 PM
TAS should have just sued over trademark enfringment and likeness rights. idiots
9/14/2009 3:45:48 PM
So, which one was the top & which one was the bottom?
9/14/2009 3:51:59 PM
too bad they didn't slit each others throats.
9/14/2009 4:08:19 PM
9/14/2009 4:10:15 PM
did he wear the emmure boxing gloves?
9/14/2009 4:12:09 PM
i like vincent, he's pretty cool.
9/14/2009 4:16:10 PM

9/14/2009 4:39:04 PM
emmure should be on this.
9/14/2009 4:43:16 PM
Oh well I spoke too soon
9/14/2009 4:46:27 PM
First Kanye West, now this gay from Emmure? Pfft they should both be dragged out and shot. ::Continues to watch "The Doctors"::
9/14/2009 4:47:13 PM
wish dude from Emmure's throat would have got ripped out. Too bad it was DL from Acacia Strain fighting him.
9/14/2009 5:25:12 PM
The venue actually has a security video of the fight.
9/14/2009 5:27:44 PM
9/14/2009 6:03:56 PM
Emmure guy deserves to get shot by a double barrel.
9/14/2009 6:04:30 PM

9/14/2009 6:14:50 PM
Frankie only started throwing punches because Vincent probably did something likr that back in 05'.
9/14/2009 6:38:16 PM
9/13, never forget.
9/14/2009 7:03:34 PM
DL should've been fighting! Frankie would've been fucked!

Eat it up you news only posters. Fuck you all. Vincent >
9/14/2009 8:03:43 PM
Its ridiculous how many views and comments these two bands can get here on lambgoat.
9/14/2009 8:16:07 PM
just sayin....... anyone who has to put on brass knucks for one guy is a puss. I once enjoyed emmure but the longer they are around the more they irritate me.
9/14/2009 9:08:46 PM
Both are terrible bands. No one cares. Emmure is not death metal by the way. Both bands are all the same riffs over and over again
9/14/2009 9:11:40 PM
EMMURE IS SO OVER IT. we all know TAS is by far the better band.
9/14/2009 9:22:15 PM
this is really gay.

Charlie, you're a gay. PS. I'm obviously devastated that the lead singer of my favorite band got beat up.
9/15/2009 12:21:01 AM
Shot tours? You do know Emmure just toured with Devildriver, right? *Jessie DANZA weeps*
9/15/2009 12:23:10 AM

9/15/2009 9:31:20 AM
Vincent-"My band is way more slobcore than yours! Frankie-"No way, I sweat profusely and smell like a bucket of fried lard" <fight ensues> Vincent-Lets get some tacos Frankie-Time to squash the beef fo reeeeal.
9/15/2009 11:46:05 AM
maybe now the bassists can fight over who is more irelevant to their band
9/15/2009 2:12:07 PM
you sure they weren't pissed about who could be more cookie cutter? Dude, we play in Bb, dude we play in negative A#........ah lets throw
9/15/2009 2:33:21 PM
Too bad Emmure sucks. TAS is the only good band in that whole shitty mosh scene, plus Vincent reps Cruel Hand, Reign Supreme, Bitter End, and a bunch of other legit hardcore bands all the time. And hes enormous, who the fuck would fight that guy?
9/15/2009 3:29:02 PM
EMMURE is the worst fucking gay band in the fucking gay world. If you like them- you are a loser with absolute shit taste. Fuck them. Ps. The Acacia Strain really isn't good either... but it is hard to get worse than Emmure.
9/15/2009 3:30:52 PM
...and on top of that. Brass Knuckles in a one on one fight?!!?! WHAT A FUCKING gay!!!
9/15/2009 5:19:33 PM
"Acacia Strain, Emmure singers trade blowjobs"
9/15/2009 5:26:30 PM
2nd comment for me. I wish it was Vincent and Frankie vs Johnny Plague. That'd be cool. Or a T-Rex vs. Johnny Plague, that'd be cool x1000.
9/15/2009 6:25:33 PM
i hope frank fights john davis from korn next... and maybe vincent can fight howard from blood has been shed?
9/15/2009 7:12:19 PM
my impression of vincent is that he would get punched and not give much of a shit. i like him.
9/15/2009 10:56:19 PM
Fuck this shit makes me sick, both bands suck, a bunch of no talent ass clowns, and they get all this Attention on lambgoat.... webby please delete this shit

9/17/2009 9:26:11 AM
"Ask your girl what my dick tastes like", not gonna lie, Frankie deserved to TAKE a beating from Vincent for shit like that. Frankie's a scumbag, a gay, and a coward. Fuck him and his shitty band.
9/17/2009 4:53:12 PM
First liferuiner gets jumped now THIS! Everypones life on lambgoat is complete.
9/17/2009 7:14:18 PM
I wish Frankie brought a gun and Vincent took out his gun and they killed each other...
9/18/2009 2:46:46 AM
I like how many people said something along the lines of "vincent and frankie trade blowjobs" am I the only that read the other comments first? haha
