Emmure Co-Founder Threatens Lawsuit

Posted by: Jason Tate (02/19/14)
Emmure's founding guitarist, Ben Lionetti, released a statement condeming the band, their management, and their label.
I feel a little need to speak out. Let's get this straight ... Emmure is MY blood sweat and tears ..MY band born from my thoughts and my hard work and writing (I'm sure you can see the change from early Emmure to now so if they say they wrote it you know it's a lie; I was actually forced to say it was an even split wether it was money or writing credits) it will never be theirs as much as they can fake it that's all it is .. fake. To see what Frank [Palmeri] is doing to me and my family's hard work is absolutely disgusting. I love Mark [Davis], we hang all the time and have always been friends with Mike since the old Recon days and I still love seeing Jesse [Ketive]. But Frank is a disgusting human being and I'm also a little let down that the band members would even let that piece of garbage call a song 'Bring a gun to school' not to mention their management, But they just see dollar signs ..and you kids keep buying it, so sad... But I guess any publicity is good publicity .. Frank's a demonic genius ... 'Ask your girl what my dick tastes like' was one thing but this shit is just out of hand. To see me and my brother's [Joe Lionetti] work and my family's support over all those years be ripped from our hands and turned into this breaks my heart. I never said anything negative and never wanted to make it public or go after them for money owed to us, like the time they said they magically lost 10k and couldn't pay me and Joe after we left the band. At least now I'll have no regrets when I slam them, their management and Victory Records with lawsuits from now until the end of time. Whether I win or not, My mission is now to take what is rightfully mine. #lawyerup

He ended with a hashtag so you know he is serious. You always use hashtags when threatening lawsuits.

It is a Workaholics reference so it is allowed.

You have to wonder if it's worth suing, considering he has to admit he started Emmure to win.

I hate this band with every bone in my body, but its mainly because of Frankie. I hope the whole ship goes down.
