If there is one thing you can say about South Carolina’s Emery, it’s that they’ve never come close to fitting into the proverbial box. Emery released their debut, sales-record-breaking full-length on Tooth & Nail Records in 2004. The Weak’s End, followed by 2005’s The Question propelled the band to the front of the post-hardcore/rock scene. Emery’s ever-building momentum continued in 2007 with I’m Only A Man and 2008 with the When Broken Hearts Prevail EP, leading up to the group’s monumental 2009 release ...In Shallow Seas We Sail, which captured a creative zenith for Emery that fans and critics still savor. In 2011 Emery returned with an explosive, final LP on Tooth & Nail entitled, We Do What We Want, and then they did exactly that.
Motivated by D-I-Y work ethic, the desire to innovate, and natural-born entrepreneurial tenacity, Emery co- founded BadChristian.com, the home and namesake of a heavily trafficked blog, podcast, and more recently the music co-operative, BC Music.
Armed with a vision and an army of crowd-funders, Emery is poised to make waves with their long expected release, You Were Never Alone. This highly anticipated follow up to We Do What We Want quickly raised over $110,000 from fans in 2014, and was meticulously crafted over an entire year of production. You Were Never Alone, received massive praise from longtime fans and critics alike. In a very popular move, the four piece recruited former bassist Devin Shelton to rejoin for the release, injecting the record with styles that haven’t been present in any Emery record since Shelton’s departure. YWNA charted number 1 on Billboard's Top Christian Albums and number 69 on Billboard's Top 200 chart. The band’s sixth full-length album went on to sell more units in it’s first week than any of their previous label-released albums.
