EMMURE frontman really wants to tour with LIMP BIZKIT
At some point last year, Justina "englishwaffle" Villaneuva and I would constantly trade Lambgoat links specifically for the comment section. My favorite Lambgoat meme was the unforgettable "Emmure should be on this" comment, reserved for the (not-so) best of tours. Oh, the endless hours of giggling this comment brought to us. So, when I saw Lambgoat was interviewing singer Frankie Palmeri, I got very excited.
Truly, I was expecting some more hard-hitting questions, but that wasn't going to happen. It really didn't need to. Frankie talking is enough for LOL-worthy content. I don't want to spoil a lot of it, but he goes into his thoughts on spirituality (so deep, brah), his lyrics and other deep topics. My favorite part though, was when he spoke of his admiration for Limp Bizkit and how much he wants to tour with them:
Limp Bizkit is in the works on a new record and I know you're a fan of those guys. Do you think there are going to be any efforts to tour with them once they get the ball rolling again?
I would love to. I've been trying to talk to Fred Durst on Twitter for over a year now like, "Hey man hit me up. Want to talk to you. Bring my band on tour." I don't know we'll see what happens.
Your crowds are not completely different crowds; I mean they're pretty…
I would like to think that. I mean, I don't know, when I was growing up Limp Bizkit was the best band in the world to me and they're still one of the bands that completely altered my view on life and music and what I should be as a person. Getting to tour with them would blow my fucking mind I don't know if it'll ever happen…
It's with the original line up too.
Exactly, exactly, I mean…I don't know. That question just completely fucked my brain up. I can't even wrap my head around that being possible. I try, I try to push the band in that direction so that maybe one day that'll be possible. Honestly I don't even know who listens to them anymore. I know I grew up listening to them and I can't wait to hear the new record but I don't know anyone on a personal level who could talk to me and be like, "Yo man I'm stoked on Limp Bizkit!" No one ever talks to me about it. You're the only person that ever asked me if I would be stoked on touring with them, the answer is yes.
What's a matter, Fred? Can't tweet Frankie back? That's cold, brah! In all honesty, as mind-numbing as it sounds, I think a Limp Bizkit/Emmure tour makes perfect fucking sense. Don't expect to see me anywhere near the venue, but hey, if a bunch of jocks want to meet up and sweat up against each other to soothing lyrics like "I did it all for the nookie, so you could take that cookie and stick it up your yea!" then go ahead, bros!
