Six months ago Emmure launched
a Patreon in a purported effort to "rebuild that bridge between us and those who have through thick and thin, the changing of winds and unpredictable trends, continue to put Emmure in their musical zeitgeist."
For reasons that have yet to be publicly revealed, the Emmure Patreon has since gone dark, seemingly deactivated sometime during the past month.

What we actually got is two video play-throughs and some poems from Frankie [Palmeri, vocalist]. I was on their Patreon for the 5 months they had it.
