Below is our complete Emery news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.

Veteran Christian rock band, Emery, will launch a crowdfunding campaign next week to help support the band's upcoming full-length, "You Were Never Alone," which will be released this summer on BadChristian Music.
"You Were Never Alone" sees the return of Emery founding member/vocalist, Devin Shelton, and the band plans to tour in support of its upcoming sixth full-length effort.
Emery has also posted a rough mix of a song from the new album, "I Got Taken for a Bath," for free download at this location.
Commented the band: "It's been almost 11 years since we released 'The Weak's End.' That's a little hard to believe for us! In that time, we have seen more success than we could have possibly dreamed. We toured the world, created five more albums, and had the privilege of meeting and getting to know a ton of you along the way. You have never left us. As we came up with what we wanted to say here, it almost brought us to tears. We really were never alone. You are Emery. And you are the reason that we are still here, and why our new record is going to be our most important."
BadChristian Music was formed in 2013 by Emery's Matt Carter and Toby Morrell along with close friend Joey Svendsen.
Texas-based, melodic hardcore group Close Your Eyes will be joining one of the most well known Christian tours to pop up in the last few years. Scream the Prayer, going on its fifth year, starts its 19 city run on June 22nd in Nashville, TN. Close Your Eyes will be sharing the stage with bands like Demon Hunter (select dates), Emery, Sleeping Giant and many more.
Close Your Eyes from Abilene, TX will be debuting the band's new lineup on the Scream the Prayer tour. Founding members Brett Callaway - lead guitar/vocals and Sonny Vega – bassist, will welcome back Andrew Rodriguez on rhythm guitar. Rodriguez, who has been an active member in Close Your Eyes for many years, is currently enrolled in school working towards his degree. He is putting his books aside this summer to join the band on stage. The band is also welcoming the two new additions: vocalist Mikey Sawyer and Jordan Vesey on drums.
