Emmure departures confirmed

Friday, May 01, 2009 4:29 PM PT


As you no doubt recall, rumors were swirling several weeks ago following the sudden departure of Emmure members Ben and Joe Lionetti during the group's last tour. Some sources indicated that the two had quit the band, while Emmure's management company stated that the two had only temporarily left to deal with a family emergency. Nothing more was heard on the matter.

However, Lambgoat has now received the following from Joe Lionetti, clearly stating that the Lionetti brothers have indeed left the band. Here you go:

"I want to clear the air now since no one is really doing it. Recently, as you may have heard, me and my brother Ben left the band for what they said was a family emergency. That night there was an altercation in the band that really spilt us down the middle even more that we had been in recent months. But to be clear, me and Ben have officially left Emmure. We started this band in our basement in the beginning of '03, however, it seems that it has gotten away from us. I do cherish the time we spent on the road with these guys creating something out of nothing. I'm very proud of what we have accomplished but it is time to move on. Thanks to all the bands and fans that we have made friends with. Thank you so much. We are both already working on other projects. We will keep everyone posted as things progress."

"We are both already working on other projects." Undoubtedly, one of these projects will be titled Emmure 2.
