Queens, New York-based deathcore act EMMURE was forced to cut its performance in Moscow, Russia short last night (Tuesday, May 7) after the band’s lead singer, Frank Palmeri, was nearly electrocuted on stage.
Guitarist Mike Mulholland took to Twitter after the show to state that the stage was unsafe and the band would be unable to continue. He went on to say that the band would be back.
After the incident, Palmeri took to his own Twitter account to reveal that he almost died on stage after 200 volts coursed through his body.

EMMURE is touring in support of its fifth full-length album, “Slave To The Game”, which was released on April 10, 2012 via Victory Records.
