Emmure Set to Release 5th Album "Slave To The Game"
In a video update released today, Emmure has announced that they will be release Slave to the Game on April 10th, 2012 via Victory Records. They've made 5 full length albums now in under 6 years. It was speculated that since their deal was up with Victory after Speaker of the Dead that they might move on to a major label. We think they've done the smart thing and stuck with the formula that has worked for them these past years. If the metal scene continues to explode kids won't need a major label to get their music, that's what the internet is for. As we reported earlier this month, Mark Castillo (ex.-Bury Your Dead/BTBM) has joined Emmure in the studio and plans to tour with the band afterwards. Unfortunately there isn't any new music in the clip. I'm actually excited to hear what Castillo brings to the table on this record because Emmure has always lacked decent drumming.
