Emmure’s Frankie Palmeri comments on the upcoming tour, “We are happy to hit the road again with our friends We Came As Romans and All That Remains.”
All That Remains continues to tour in support of their latest studio album, The Order Of Things, which was released this past February via Razor & Tie. The band recently released the music video for their current single “For You”. The song is now Top 15 at Active Rock Radio and still climbing. Their seventh studio album The Order Of Things debuted at #25 on the Billboard Top 200 with over 19,000 units sold in its first week at retail. This marks the band’s fourth Top 25 Album debut to date. All That Remains has dominated rock radio for years now with previous hit singles, “Stand Up” ascending to #1 at Active Rock radio and “What If I Was Nothing” landing at #2. ATR’s worldwide album sales now exceed over one million, while track sales surpass 1.5 million. Led by the outspoken and controversial front man Phil Labonte, All That Remains continues to lead the charge in the rock music scene with their latest release. Since 1998, All That Remains continue to progress, while clenching steadfast to the principals that etched their place at the forefront of 21st century hard rock. The Massachusetts outfit is Phil Labonte (vocals), Oli Herbert (guitar), Mike Martin (guitar), Jeanne Sagan (bass), and Jason Costa (drums).
We Came As Romans recently released their highly successful self titled album on July 24th, 2015, which debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top Current 200. This marks the second time the band has debuted in the top eight of the Billboard Top Current 200. In addition, the new album secured the #2 spot on both the Hard Music and Independent Charts, as well as the #8 most streamed album on Spotify. The album, which was recorded with multi-platinum award winning producer David Bendeth (Bring Me The Horizon, Paramore, Of Mice and Men), can now purchase it via MerchNow and iTunes. The lead single, “The World I Used To Know” is currently at #40 on the active rock charts. The band recently released the official music videos for “The World I Used To Know”, which can be seen here: http://bit.ly/1f3Xe8d and “Regenerate”, which can be seen here: http://bit.ly/1ImI99w. Composed of vocalists, David Stephens and Kyle Pavone, guitarists Joshua Moore and Lou Cotton, bassist Andrew Glass and drummer Eric Choi, We Came As Romans have already seen massive success with their first two full-length albums To Plant A Seed and Understanding What We’ve Grown To Be each topping 100,000 sales in the US alone. Their most recent release, Tracing Back Roots topped the Billboard charts coming in at #8 on the Billboard 200. The album also charted #1 Independent Album, #1 Internet Album, #1 Hard Rock Album and#2 Top Rock Album. The band’s recent live DVD release Present, Future, and Past debuted #1 on the Billboard DVD charts, beating Metallica for the top spot.
Back on the road, Emmure, lead by their hot-blooded, combative frontman, Frankie Palmeri, is ready to remind the world what heavy-hitting metal is all about. Performing in support of their latest, sixth-studio album, Eternal Enemies, released April 2014 via Victory Records, this is Emmure at their heaviest, applauded by Alternative Press for their “collection of pavement-saw riffs, jackhammer drumming, and filling-loosening squeals.” Debuting as #4 in the Top Hard Rock Albums chart, and #57 on the Billboard 200, Eternal Enemies is a culmination of perfectly timed breakdowns, impassioned lyricism, and a live performance beyond reproach. The only band ever to be asked to perform for thousands on the Rockstar Mayhem Festival two years in a row, Emmure have been steadily collecting a loyal legion of fans since their inception in 2003 out of Queens, NY, and have only just begun. The five-piece is comprised of vocalist Frankie Palmeri, bassist Mark Davis, guitarists Jesse Ketive and Mike Mullholland, and drummer Adam Pierce.
Alternative rockers Red Sun Rising are touring in support of their debut album, Polyester Zeal, which was released on August 7th via Razor & Tie and debuted on Billboard’s Heatseeker’s Chart at #7. The album is available on iTunes, Spotify and record stores everywhere- iTunes here: http://geni.us/redsunrising. The band recently released a gritty music video for their current radio single “The Otherside”. The track has been rising up the Active rock radio charts, already reaching the Top 10. The album was produced by powerhouse producer Bob Marlette (Black Sabbath, Shinedown, Seether). The Akron, Ohio natives completed a knockout tour with Nothing More and are currently on the road with Pop Evil as well as select festival dates. Red Sun Rising continue to stun audiences with their commanding stage presence and sound. After the band’s recent performance at Rock on The Range, Loudwire raved “Musically, melodically and vocally Red Sun Rising are a band to give a listen to and their live performance enriches their sound tenfold. Their new song “The Otherside” is truly infectious and it’s one you’ll have on loop for days.” Red Sun Rising is Mike Protich (vocals/guitar), Ryan Williams (guitar), Tyler Valendza (guitar), Ricky Miller (bass/vocals), and Pat Gerasia (drums).
Failure Anthem recently signed to Razor & Tie and will release their debut album First World Problems in early 2016. The album was produced by Drew Fulk and guitarist Kile Odell. The video for the track “Paralyzed” has already had over 120,000 views – VEVO- WATCH HERE. “Paralyzed” impacts rock radio on November 2nd and can also be purchased on iTunes here: http://geni.us/failureanthem. The Greensboro, NC quintet—JD [vocals], Ryan [bass, backup vocals], Kile [guitar], Zane [drums], and Wil [rhythm guitars]—architect eleven impactful, invigorating, and infectious anthems with hooks so robust that modern bells and whistles just aren’t necessary. It’s a tried-and-true approach that feels timeless as the boys make hard rock hypnotic again. Formed in 2013, the band has been touring and building a fanbase nationwide playing such rock festivals as Carolina Rebellion and supporting such acts as Halestorm and Scott Stapp. They are on the road with Texas Hippie Coalition this summer.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Alright let me get this out of my system first……..WTF Guys! No NYC date for this massive Metal event!!!! It’s an outrage I say!! Whew……all better now. So yeah for the Metal Legions in the Big Apple they need to trek out to NJ for the Starland Ballroom show so I hope some of you are carpooling with fans in need. Just don’t drink and drive because I love seeing your smiling, horns raised high faces at all the shows I go to. This as a bill is a sure to be crushing your senses as All That Remains ALWAYS delivers on the stage in my humble opinion and though I have never before seen We Came As Romans am sure that a lot of the same can be expected. Emmure seems to get a lot of flack on some other websites but after seeing them live a few times over the past couple of years can honestly say that there is a strong connection between them and their fans. For this kind of music this is a very strong package and one that should satisfy all in attendance. Let’s add the newness of bands like Failure Anthem and Red Sun Rising who will get their chance to shine for an even bigger audience thanks to this run. So what do you think my readers. Will you be attending this tour on any of the above dates or could you give “0” you know what’s. Let me know what you think in the comments section since that is what it’s there for. Right now I am not sure I am going based on scheduling but if I do you can read about it right here on the PiercingMetal.com site that’s for sure.
