Queens, New York-based deathcore act EMMURE has entered the studio with producer Joey Sturgis (ASKING ALEXANDRIA, THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA) to begin recording its new album for a late spring release via Victory Records. The CD will mark the recording debut of the band's new drummer, Mark Costillo, who has previously played with BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME and BURY YOUR DEAD.
Commented EMMURE guitarist Jesse Ketive: "Mark Costillo has been a good friend for a few years now.
"Mark approached us as he heard through the grapevine that EMMURE needed a helping hand, so at that point I chatted with him about possibly recording our new CD and playing some shows. After jamming the set a few times, we all decided that Mark was the perfect fit for us and undoubtedly should be our new drummer. He is the utmost professional and his work on the new effort in going to really help us bring everything to another level. Everyone better watch out."
