Emarosa channel 80s pop with ‘Givin’ Up,’ announce new album

When Emarosa began welcoming fans to the Peach Club in October, some were confused while others were quick to claim that it would be the name of the band’s new studio album. As it turns out, those who said it would be their new album’s title were in fact correct. On Friday (Nov. 16), the Kentucky-founded four-piece confirmed the name and release date for their impending record. Titled Peach Club, the forthcoming fifth studio effort is due out Feb. 8, 2019 via Hopeless Records.

Pre-orders for the album are currently available on the band’s website where they are offering a slew of bundles. Peach Club is the follow-up to the quartet’s 2016 release, 131.

Speculations of an upcoming new album began in October when frontman Bradley Walden declared that the band’s post-hardcore sound was a thing of the past.

“Post hardcore Emarosa is dead,” the singer wrote on Twitter.

While that’s a massive claim that a lot of musicians tend to make when they go in a different direction, sonically, for Emarosa that statement doesn’t become any more apparent than in their first single, “Givin’ Up.”

Influenced by pop icons of the 80s like Paula Abdul, Prince, and Michael Jackson, the band’s lead single makes it evident that this is definitely a new chapter in their book.

“We’re at that point where we’ve realized that there’s no consequences for making whatever record we want to make,” Walden said in a press statement about the band’s new sound.

“We started writing, and it felt like the book was being thrown out the window. There are no rules.”
