"I went to go post a video of a lesson and saw that I was removed as an administrator from the website. I called our manager to re-add me but was already in an argument with him a few nights prior about his lack of professionalism, and the facts that I donít trust him, and that he might be stealing from us; nothing new there. So because of this he doesnít pick up his phone, even though he should because we pay his bills. I call the company he works with and have them re-add me to post the video, so then of course I get the call from our manager. He tells me that Ďpeopleí in the band arenít happy with what Iíve been posting, though a few months prior he told me to do exactly what I was doing so that the fans realize we are nice guys with our own personalities and that whacko Frankie [Palmeri, the band's singer] shouldnít monopolize the page."
After that argument things seemed fine until Mike posted a remix of a Drake song he did for fun:
"That really upset him because even though I stated that it was only by me and not the band, it received a little negative criticism and that just scared them. Thatís when Frank decided I need to leave the band even though Iíve known him for nearly 15 years. So he sent me a text kicking me out of the band which was disgusting considering he lives a half a mile from me."
Mike's statement certainly airs out a lot of dirty laundry. But until Emmure releases an official statement, no one knows how much of it is truthful, and how much is sour grapes. This split-up may get dramatic. Probably to be continued...
