2019 album also available in CD.
Kentucky born Emarosa’s new album ‘Peach Club’ makes the most of their eclectic influences, marking their sixth studio effort as their most pop-laden and personal album to date. So bid farewell to the old Emarosa, the group’s trading thick, post-hardcore guitar riffs and eccentric time signatures for saxophone solos and contagious pop hooks laced in 1980s influence.
It’s a direction that’s been brewing with Emarosa since singer Bradley Walden’s first writing session, he told Forbes. Walden joined the group in 2014, debuting on the group’s third full-length, Verses.
“We’ve all wanted to do it,” Walden said. “We had to do it for ourselves.”On departing fully from a post-hardcore sound that’s filled parking lots for a decade on the (now extinct) Warped Tour, he explained: “This band hasn’t been post-hardcore in a long time. … The post-hardcore Emarosa is so dead. I dare anyone to listen to this new record, ‘Peach Club’, and try to think we’re anything but this alternative band.”
The group wrote a majority of the record on the east coast, but retreated to Los Angeles to track the 11-song ‘Peach Club’ with producer Courtney Ballard, who’s worked with 5 Seconds of Summer and Jessie J.
