Emarosa : Versus
Released on September 9, 2014
Some bands burn out, other bands fade away. Emarosa did neither of these things. They
released their previous self titled album in June of 2010, the album was praised by both fans and
critics, and the band toured the world over, headlining everything from club shows to festivals.
Then right at the peak of the bands success, they took a surprising step back. It wasn't a break
up, and it wasn't a proper hiatus, it was just a band who had been busy relentlessly touring and
recording for 5 years deciding that they needed to take a deep breath.
It's been 4 years and Emarosa is back, and stronger than ever. The nice thing about taking a
break when you're at your peak, is that everyone is anxiously waiting for you to return. Emarosa's
fanbase is still here, and it's just as rabid as it's ever been. They have been begging for the
band to return. And that's exactly what the band has done. Emarosa's new album "Versus" is
the bands strongest material to date. And while the bands absence from the scene these past 4
years has been frustrating, it's all forgiven the moment you hear the album in it's entirety. The
band has been busy playing the new songs on tour with Chiodos this past spring, and they will
head out on tour making a stop at Riot Fest then hiing the entire U.S. with Yellowcard and
Memphis May Fire this fall to support the album around its release.
They always say that good things take time, and in the case of Emarosa it's the truth.
