Connecticut/Queens, NY's EMMURE will enter the studio on December 1 with producer Zeuss (STAIND, HATEBREED, UNEARTH, SHADOWS FALL) to begin recording its Victory Records debut, "Goodbye to the Gallows", due on March 6, 2007.
The band, whose members hail from Queens, NY, and Fairfield, CT, hooked up through the Internet three years ago. Since then, they've been writing their own songs and touring DIY relentlessly.
Regarding what people can expect to hear on the group's debut album, guitarist Jesse Ketive said, "Expect very brutal rock that's still easy to understand and connect to. We pride ourselves on creating very genuine music. We always made music that way and we always will. The only difference now is what we do will be done on a larger scale. How we make our music won't change. We're not going to snap our fingers and become this totally different band. We're going to write the same way and play the same way — that's how we can keep people happy."
What makes EMMURE such a special band is that they present themselves and their music as who they really are. "We really enjoy writing the heaviest music possible and playing it to others, yet at the same time this band is very friendly and approachable," Jesse noted. "The thing that can set us apart is our finesse…in the way we care about everything we do, and the way we come across to people. I want our fans to have a true sense of who we are, so when we go up onstage, we're having a lot of fun playing the hardest music we can, so people can enjoy it, too."
