Matt Carter, guitarist/producer for veteran rock band, Emery, will host a Reddit AMA: http://www.reddit.com/r/iAmA/ today at 1:00 PM PDT (4:00 PM EDT) to discuss the band’s recently launched You Were Never Alone crowdfunding campaign and more. The fan with the top voted question will win a choice of a signed CD package or paperback copy of Bad Christian, Great Savior.
You Were Never Alone, Emery’s sixth full-length effort, will be released this summer on BadChristian Music, the record label founded by Emery members, Matt Carter and Toby Morrell, and former Emery bassist, Joey Svendsen. The band is now offering multiple You Were Never Alone crowdfunding packages through the BadChristian website at: www.badchristian.com/campaign/newemery including autographed merch, limited vinyl, personal fan experiences and more. All packages will also include downloads of two new, rough-version tracks from the upcoming album.
The band commented, “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.”
You Were Never Alone marks the return of founding member/vocalist, Devin Shelton, and it’s also Emery’s first offering as an independent entity, after releasing five albums on Tooth and Tail.
The band added, “…something didn’t feel right about someone else owning Emery’s future recordings in perpetuity, especially when independent musicians are getting better opportunities to succeed every year. We want to own our music. We want to be able to sell it, give it away, re-record it in different ways, release vinyl, and do whatever we’re inspired to do with it.”
Stay tuned for more information on Emery, You Were Never Alone and BadChristian.
