Emmure Get New Drummer


Mark Costillo
That’s right.

A press release claims that former Between the Buried and Me and Bury Your Dead drummer Mark Castillo has been chosen as the new drummer for Emmure.

Better get ready for some ghetto frat boy tomfoolery, Mark. And expect to gain at least 50 pounds. You gotta be big to be in Emmure.

The band are currently holed up once again with acclaimed producer Joey Sturgis (Asking Alexandria, The Devil Wears Prada) tracking “their much anticipated new album,” a press release says.

“Mark Castillo has been a good friend for a few years now,” the band says in a statement.

“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,” the statement adds.

“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 upmost professional and his work on the new effort in going to really help us bring everything to another level. Everyone better watch out.”

So, yeah — that happened.
