Emmure recruits ex-BTBAM, BYD drummer
As you may know, Emmure has been in the studio as-of-late recording a new album. You may also know that they must have a new drummer, since they kicked out their drummer in October. What you don't know is that their new drummer is apparently none other than Mark Castillo, the original drummer of Bury Your Dead, and one-time drummer for Between The Buried And Me (Castillo appeared on their "The Silent Circus" album). Of course nothing has been announced yet, so don't call mom just yet.
UPDATE: Emmure has now officially announced the aforementioned news.Jesse (guitars) states: "Mark Castillo has been a good friend for a few years now. Mark approached us as he heard through the grapevine that EMMURE needed a helping hand, so at that point I chatted with him about possibly recording our new CD and playing some shows. After jamming the set a few times we all decided that Mark was the perfect fit for us and undoubtedly should be our new drummer. He is the upmost professional and his work on the new effort in going to really help us bring everything to another level. Everyone better watch out."
