Emmure, The Acacia Strain tour in the works?

We don't like to lend credence to anything that has yet to rise above rumor status, let alone put them in our "news" section, but this one was too interesting to ignore. Yesterday afternoon, a regular (and typically reliable) poster on AbsolutePunk dropped the following tidbit: Emmure and The Acacia Strain rumor Emmure and The Acacia Strain touring together?! Scandalous! Hours later, another poster stated, "Yeah, my friend works for the security company that works shows in most venues in Philly. He said the Emmure/TAS tour is happening and coming to Philly." For what it's worth, this same guy says that the co-headline tour will also feature Stray From The Path and Sworn In. On the surface, such a tour would seem highly unlikely given the 2009 altercation between Emmure frontman Frankie Palmeri and The Acacia Strain vocalist Vincent Bennett. However, that brawl is exactly the reason we honestly think this tour just may happen. Hardcore beeves are made to be squashed, and though this one no longer exists behind the scenes (it just doesn't), a tour would officially put the bad blood to pasture. More importantly, it would sell tickets. Stay tuned for dates :-)

nothing is sacred anymore. i would've had a STRONG opinion about this in 2008. i might go though


anonymous 7/15/2014 7:11:24 AM

"We don't like to lend credence to anything that has yet to rise above rumor status" OH OK


anonymous 7/15/2014 7:24:22 AM

Lol both bands aren't relevant anymore


anonymous 7/15/2014 7:34:44 AM

Now let's just hope for a Great White-style venue fire so we can finally be rid of this scene.


vsoccermomv 7/15/2014 7:36:08 AM

Won't fcking be there.


anonymous 7/15/2014 7:38:39 AM

A "regular and reliable poster"? Cause a 21 year old boy with 506 posts and a bleeding heart icon is where I like to get my news from.


anonymous 7/15/2014 8:30:55 AM

"Excuse me sir, but do you realize you are drinking pure Columbian coffee crystals...?"


anonymous 7/15/2014 8:37:13 AM

Spelling, grammar, and sense are cool. Bowe Bergdahl is stoked.


anonymous 7/15/2014 9:00:05 AM

King 810 anyone?


anonymous 7/15/2014 9:03:01 AM

Maclyn Bean is aggressively stoked!!!


anonymous 7/15/2014 9:09:48 AM

I talked to TAS drummer and bassist before a show back in August of last year @ The End in Nashville, TN. They told me that they have no need with emmure and people on the internet just run their mouths about shit they don't know or make up.


anonymous 7/15/2014 9:11:54 AM

@h0tdack if you don't know what genre a band is then keep your mouth shut. TAS is deathcore. Doom is completely different.


anonymous 7/15/2014 9:30:20 AM

hardcore beevs


anonymous 7/15/2014 9:30:31 AM

fred durst should be on this

anonymous 7/15/2014 11:48:24 AM

trying to start a HS fight "when the bell rings at 3:00pm" but to make money and BEG to be the center of attention when they're both becoming SHoT


bcosta56 7/15/2014 12:19:06 PM

Emmure should be on this


anonymous 7/15/2014 12:32:50 PM

anonymous 7/15/2014 2:02:01 PM

Seriously though, anyone see the fight? Seems like Eric Warheim would have squashed lil Frankie.


anonymous 7/15/2014 2:37:20 PM

Should be called, "The Shockem Sockem Tour"


anonymous 7/15/2014 2:52:28 PM

Id rather get blasted in the balls by a battering ram than go to this show.


anonymous 7/15/2014 2:58:50 PM

I saw the phrase "too interesting to ignore" in the first sentence. What a sad group of people, you are.


maclynb 7/15/2014 4:52:58 PM

Maclyn Bean is aggressively stoked!!! I AM STOKED


anonymous 7/15/2014 7:13:38 PM

@shit_salesman Are you fcking retarded? Do you know what Doom Metal is? Go listen to Bongripper or Eibon and shut your mouth. TAS has been deathcore since the beginning and they still are.


anonymous 7/15/2014 7:36:06 PM

Frankie Palmeri is shocked by this news!
