Emmure drummer Mark Castillo quits band

Two and half years ago Lambgoat was the first to tell you that drummer Mark Castillo had joined Emmure. Fittingly, we will now be the first to tell you that he is no longer in the band. Though we have received no official confirmation on the matter, word on the street is that Castillo recently left the band under amicable circumstances. Moreover, Emmure is currently touring Europe, and Castillo remains at home in Connecticut. We can report that All Shall Perish drummer Adam Pierce has been filling in. Our sources seldom lead us astray, so we're extremely confident about his exit. Prior to joining Emmure, Castillo had done time in several notable bands, including Bury Your Dead, Between The Buried And Me, and Crossfade.

Superior drummer is stoked

Damn they lost their 3rd drummer... No more room for Frankie's ego?

chicken_gang_bang 7/1/2014 3:15:49 PM

King810 should be on this

anonymous 7/1/2014 3:24:01 PM

maybe his visa to go to Russia was not approved maybe that's why he's not with the band a lot of bands always find members to replace other members when when they go to other countries and their band members don't get visa approved

anonymous 7/1/2014 3:29:08 PM

I've had aconversation with Mark before and let me tell you its pretty one sided. The guy is stonecold. A great drummer. But he's kinda gay. With that whole "I'm gonna stick out my tounge & show everyone that it's peirced' shit every 30 seconds. There must be somthing up with that guy if he can't hold a job for more than 6 months.

anonymous 7/1/2014 3:31:56 PM

i used 2 worked with the Emmure bassist at Hot Topic South County :)

anonymous 7/1/2014 3:34:24 PM

I'm annoyed. My friend resides on the floor above me. I'm bothered because he over recent weeks grew great at attracting all women. He found the Master Attraction web page (Start looking in Google) by Jake Ayres. All he's doing now is banging women. He's continually pulling ladies and I can't help but hear it, which is nasty and If only he never found that site. My best friend just signed up and got a favor later that day. So yeah, I am annoyed. But more so I am envious.

Band sucks. Who cares?

anonymous 7/1/2014 3:38:47 PM

Wouldn't be surprised to see Mark rejoin, he was easily clearing $25,000/yr.

anonymous 7/1/2014 3:39:34 PM

Good for him. Join BYD again. "Extra gloves?! You've had those extra gloves this whole time?!"

anonymous 7/1/2014 3:40:42 PM

Great drummer. He can do better than Emmure anyway.

anonymous 7/1/2014 3:47:10 PM

vincent bennet bit off frankie palmeris nipple at a venue in albany NY in 2010. theres a bit of news for you.

anonymous 7/1/2014 3:54:39 PM

frank palmeris breath smells like shit. he lives in arkansas because he has no real friends anymore. tony brummel has repeatedly told the members of emmure they are all replaceable with shit throwing monkeys and the album would sell. these are quotes

anonymous 7/1/2014 3:55:26 PM

NEXT WEEK: Mark Castillo joins King 810

anonymous 7/1/2014 4:12:17 PM

You all dream about being cored out by foot-long BBCs.

anonymous 7/1/2014 4:21:02 PM

Sup ppl. Everyone here afraid to type 'This band isn't going anywhere.' ??? Thought so.

jew_salesman 7/1/2014 4:24:02 PM

this band isnt going anywhere

anonymous 7/1/2014 4:37:33 PM

Last I talked to Mark he was clearing $1800/month.

anonymous 7/1/2014 4:40:30 PM

Toured with Emmure after they 'made it' and in their rider they demanded catering provide them with healthy meals - or $200 to eat out

anonymous 7/1/2014 4:56:08 PM

Emmure was never as good as Bloodlet.

anonymous 7/1/2014 4:58:41 PM

^ doesn't seem out of the ordinary dipshit. Band has been on a steady decline in album sales and ticket sales since the last album came out. I really can't think of anything they could possibly do to reinvent themselves or stay relevant. Mark has always been an opurtinist and I'm sure found another better paying gig.

anonymous 7/1/2014 5:03:25 PM

Did he finally wake up and realize, "oh shit, I drum for Emmure. I should probably not do that anymore..."

anonymous 7/1/2014 5:15:45 PM

opurtinists are stoked!

anonymous 7/1/2014 5:22:36 PM

Wow. You all realize Mark is in his mothers basement reading these comment.

anonymous 7/1/2014 5:31:19 PM

Mark is going to drum with Atreyu I heard. Dat gay.

anonymous 7/1/2014 5:35:15 PM

I remember seeing these guys at my friends very, very small venue back in 2002(or 03), fresh off the warped tour.......they got there, and 3 songs into their set, the bassist and guitarist broke the necks off their guitars in a mid stage collision. Hell of a talented band, cool guys to talk to as well.

anonymous 7/1/2014 6:08:50 PM


anonymous 7/1/2014 6:48:50 PM

Mark sucked King's dck and fcking loved it. He just couldn't learn all their songs.

anonymous 7/1/2014 7:08:00 PM

king 810 is stoked

anonymous 7/1/2014 7:15:52 PM

Toured with Emmure after they 'made it' and in their rider they demanded catering provide them with healthy meals - or $200 to eat out ^ whats your fcking band? Local TBA ?

f28r06a42n12k 7/1/2014 7:20:52 PM

I bet he was sick of being in a joke band led by a severely ADHD-afflicted assclown with a lust for dramatic horseshit. But that's just my guess.

anonymous 7/1/2014 7:56:36 PM

Emmure should be on this.

anonymous 7/1/2014 8:05:19 PM

I wonder what it feels like to be adopted. oh wait.

anonymous 7/1/2014 8:18:39 PM

If I had a nickel for every chubby lesbian I mistook for this dude out of the corner of my eye is be a rich man

malachi 7/1/2014 8:47:35 PM

Is Emmure shocked?

Frankie Palmeri is a legitimate homosexual

anonymous 7/1/2014 8:54:15 PM

Not that there's anything wrong with that. It just needs to be known that he needs. Dude needs to come out already.

anonymous 7/1/2014 9:20:58 PM

He took his bag of jewels and left Emmure shocked.

anonymous 7/1/2014 9:50:27 PM

Frankie Palmeri is defintely shocked.

anonymous 7/1/2014 10:02:37 PM

Emmure is stoked

anonymous 7/1/2014 10:08:13 PM

Did he finally wake up and realize, "oh shit, I drum for Emmure. I should probably not do that anymore... hahaha that was the best thing on this post

anonymous 7/1/2014 11:38:18 PM

He was the drummer of HAMARTIA at the beginnings. Lambygoaty?!

Emmure's studio drum machine will be joining the band on the road for all future tours.

anonymous 7/2/2014 6:54:01 AM

Hahahahahahaha crossfade, hahaha great

anonymous 7/2/2014 9:45:11 AM

He was the drummer of Hamartia and played on BTBAM's Silent Circus... Show some respect. Do any of the new jacks here even know of Hamartia? Mark is a very talented drummer and i'm happy he isn't in this band anymore. Maybe he will find a project that displays his talent.

anonymous 7/2/2014 10:01:35 AM

He received a cochlear implant and heard Emmure for the first time. No joke. 2014/07/02/drummer-mark-ca stillo-receives-cochlear-i mplant-quits-emmure/

Hahaa can't believe Francis Palmieiri is actually posting on this. You HOMO. You give gays a bad name. I was hoping this was gonna say "Mark Castillo arrested for executing Emmure on stage" . fck

anonymous 7/4/2014 9:07:16 PM

Hamartia was some of Marks best material where he shined as an incredible musician along side BTBAM. Hamartia was amazing

anonymous 7/17/2014 11:09:58 AM

Mark just got a gig playing for Taylor Swift. No joke.
