Emmure frontman Frankie Palmeri was interviewed on episode seven of Hatebreed, etc. vocalist Jamey Jasta‘s ‘The Jasta Show‘ and addressed the beef that led to an altercation between him and The Acacia Strain singer Vincent Bennett back in 2009.
With both bands due to officially tour together later this year for the first time since, Palmeri spoke the situation and their current relationship to Jasta. He also confirmed the well known fact that the groups ‘Keep Calm‘ shirt was at the time directed towards Bennett‘s girlfriend.
“Here’s really how that played out, from the top as short as I can make it, is we were cool. Literally he would come to our shows and like mosh, he thought we were dope. We were fans-we’re still fans now, just to put it out of the way, I still dig the band and ya know, cool guys and everything.
But the relationship went from like us being cool to hearing him talk shit about us. I’m not the kind of person to run my mouth about really anybody, ever, especially if I don’t have a reason to. That’s just how I am. But anyways, everywhere I went ‘oh Vince said this about you’ and I was like, ‘yeah, really don’t care.’ And then they had written a song which everyone was like ‘yo, that song is about you guys’, like 110%.
And so you know, I was like ok, I’m gonna basically get on your level and top you and just completely dis you even harder. And I did it by mentioning a fellatio experience with his now current wife.
That’s where the lyric came from, and so it comes from a personal place for me. So to me its like if you’re offended by that, you’re just looking for a reason to get riled up and truthfully you’re just that bored. That’s the long story short and now we’re cool and when we see each other we say what’s up.
