Following their late 2019 single "Pigs Ear", metal juggernauts EMMURE continue to tease their forthcoming, eighth studio album that's due out later this year. Today, the band has revealed a video for a crushing new song titled "Gypsy Disco".
EMMURE's latest track touches on the subject of suicide prevention, a topic near and dear to the band.
The clip for "Gypsy Disco" was directed by Eric DiCarlo (FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY, SAVAGE HANDS), who stated about the process: "Working with [vocalist] Frankie [Palmeri] on this video was a really cool experience. First and foremost, the song kicks ass. This allowed me to shoot/edit pretty aggressively and slam some really intense visuals in your face. Combine that with some narrative (that is both introspective and tells a story of failure) being broadcasted through a form of media and you have yourself a visual representation of EMMURE's new album. I'd also like to note that we ended the video with a direct contact to the suicide hotline for anyone that may relate or feel alone."
Summoning the most brutal barebones, punishing metallic hardcore with some of the catchiest nu-metal inspired Active Rock rhythm around, EMMURE makes its awaited return with no feigned sophistication, no phoned-in sloganeering, and no calculated drama. Leaving the gossip and the rumor mill in the past, Palmeri, along with guitarist Josh Travis and drummer Josh Miller, has emerged from the studio with a new LP.
EMMURE's latest album, "Look At Yourself", which was released in March 2017. The follow-up to the 2014's "Eternal Enemies" marked EMMURE's first release with SharpTone Records.
