Emarosa are ‘Ready to Love’ on their latest standalone single

Emarosa is back to tell you they’re ready for love.

On Monday (Nov. 18), the Kentucky-founded band unleashed a brand new song, the first since the February release of their current album, Peach Club.

During a quick sit-down with Billboard, frontman Bradley Walden unveiled the inspiration behind the new track, and let’s just say, it’s very mature.

“‘Ready to Love’ is that bite that’s too hot. You know it’ll hurt, you know it’s not ready, but it takes that pain to learn your lesson,” the vocalist tells the publication.

“The older you get, the more self-aware you become about what you want for yourself and what you want in a partner. A lot of time can be wasted being with people out of loneliness. This song is a reflection of moving past that and knowing what you want, knowing your worth, and knowing what you are/are not ready for.”

“Ready to Love” is the group’s first new track since the release of their fifth studio album, Peach Club. The studio effort not only marked their first release through their new home of Hopeless Records, but it also found the band shifting from their old screamy sound to new, 80s-inspired music.

Since its early 2019 release, Peach Club has produced several singles, including “Givin’ Up,” “Cautious,” “Don’t Cry,” and Walden’s tribute to his mother, “Get Back Up.”

In support of the album, Emarosa announced plans to embark on one last tour before the year ends. The new Peach Club tour dates include shows in Salt Lake City, Denver, Minneapolis, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, Dallas, and more.

The 18-stop jaunt begins on Nov. 29 at Holy Drive in Sacramento and concludes in mid-December with a two-night engagement (Dec. 21 and 22) at the Moroccan in Los Angeles. At the time of publication, 15 out of the 18 shows have been classified as sold out.

“We’re performing Peach Club front to back,” Walden said in a press statement in July. “We’ve never done anything like this. It’ll be special.”

Emarosa showcase the power of parental love in ‘Get Back Up’

For anyone who was following Emarosa’s press cycle before the release of Peach Club, they would be aware that one of the songs on it was very special for frontman Bradley Walden. When the group announced “Get Back Up” would be a pre-album-release single, Walden was quick to unveil that the inspiration behind the song was his mom. Months after the album’s February release, Emarosa has returned with the song’s music video just in time for Mother’s Day.

On Thursday (May 9), the Kentucky-founded band joined forces with Pop Crush to debut the over-three-minute music video for the song. The clip begins with a kid looking through the window of a door inside of a school. Seated in the room is a woman who we can assume is his mother alongside his teacher.

Not being able to take the scene in front of him, he bursts through the day in an attempt to save his mother from the clutches of his evil teacher and school. Along the way, they find a map that has the direction on how to escape. After making a pinkie promise to meet up again, they head out on their own missions.

Of course, obstacles do appear in the form of that pesky teacher, a sword-fighting janitor, a gym class, and another teacher/principal. At the end, they do manage to escape and show the viewer the adorable and strong bond between a mother and her child.

Watch the music video for “Get Back Up” above.

When speaking about the song to the publication, Walden reveals how his mother being a single-parent influenced him and the song.

“She divorced when I was young. We were ripped from our lives and forced from our home. There was a time where we didn’t know where we’d go, living with family just to get back to our feet,” the singer reveals.

He adds: “The constant struggles always knocked us down, but she was a resilient woman. If it wasn’t for watching someone get back up time and time again when life wouldn’t let up, I wouldn’t be the person I am now.”

“Get Back Up” is featured on Emarosa’s recently released record, Peach Club.

In support of Peach Club’s release, the Emarosa previously announced plans to head out on the road with Set It Off on their Midnight world tour. The upcoming tour kicks odd On June 11 at Black Sheep in Colorado Springs and concludes a little over a month later on July 19 at Strummers in Fresno. The full list of tour dates can be found here.

Listen: Emarosa ‘Get Back Up’ on new single

Emarosa’s new album is due out in a few short days, but don’t expect the band to stop treating fans to new music. On Tuesday (Feb. 5), the Kentucky-founded act unleashed another new song from their forthcoming fifth studio album; a track titled “Get Back Up.”

Speaking with DuJour —where the song made its exclusive debut— frontman Bradley Walden reveals that “Get Back Up” holds a special place in his heart because of the special woman in his life whose never-ending perseverance inspired it; his mom.

“This is by far the most special song on the album for me. I wrote this song for my mom. She raised my sister and I by herself. We hit rock bottom many times, were kicked out of our home, living off food stamps, struggling to get by but that woman never gave up,” Walden says.

“No matter how many times we got knocked down, no matter how bad it got she was my rock and she got back up. I wouldn’t be the person I am today if it wasn’t for her perseverance, love, and determination.”

Listen to “Get Back Up” above.

“Get Back Up” joins previously released singles “Cautious,” “Don’t Cry,” and “Givin’ Up” on the band’s quickly approaching new release, Peach Club. Peach Club is due out this Friday, Feb. 8, through Hopeless Records. Pre-orders for the album are still available on the band’s website.

Peach Club is the follow-up to the band’s 2016 release 131.

Tonight, Emarosa will take the stage at the Prophet Bar in Dallas for their second sold-out Peach Club album release show. The mini-album release tour also includes stops at Club Red in Mesa on Thursday, Feb. 7; The Hi Hat in Los Angeles on Saturday, Feb. 9; and Anna O’Briens in Honolulu next Thursday, Feb. 14. After wrapping up their short jaunt, the band will head to Japan for four shows.

Listen: Emarosa get ‘Cautious’ on latest single

With a little over a week left until the release of their fifth studio album, Emarosa has returned with yet another new song from it. On Monday (Jan. 28), the Kentucky-founded act unleashed their third single; a track titled “Cautious.”

The song, which premiered exclusively on Billboard, finds the band sticking to the poppy side of the rock genre; their goal with this new studio effort.

While speaking with the publication, lead vocalist Bradley Walden explained the lyrical inspiration behind the new song.

“Sex after heartbreak can tell you a lot about who you are,” begins Walden.

“If you move on, you move on. If you can’t move on, maybe that was love you had. When I wrote this I was just trying to navigate those feelings.”

Listen to “Cautious” above.

“Cautious” joins previously released tracks “Don’t Cry” and lead single “Givin’ Up” on Emarosa’s forthcoming studio album, Peach Club. Peach Club is due out Feb. 8 through Hopeless Records. Pre-orders for the album are still available on the band’s website.

Peach Club is the follow-up to the band’s 2016 release 131.

Even though the album has yet to be released, Emarosa has been touring nonstop behind its imminent release. The European leg of their current tour will conclude tomorrow night (Jan. 29), at Tivoli Vredenburg in the Netherlands.

After wrapping up their European tour, the act will return to the North American touring circuit for a handful of Peach Club album release shows in early February. The album release shows will include gigs in Philadelphia, Dallas, Mesa, Los Angeles, and Honolulu. Once the album is out and in the hands of fans, the group will make their way to Japan in late February for four shows.

Listen: Emarosa drop new track ‘Don’t Cry’

Emarosa have returned with another new song from their upcoming new album. On Wednesday (Jan. 9), the Kentucky-founded band unleashed the audio for the second single off their forthcoming album, Peach Club. Titled “Don’t Cry,” the new tune follows in the footsteps of lead single “Givin’ Up” by confirming to longtime listeners that “post hardcore Emarosa is dead.

Unlike “Givin’ Up” which drew a lot inspiration from dance-centric tracks from the 80s, “Don’t Cry” goes in a mellower, ballad-like direction which still could find a home in the 80s.

“‘Don’t Cry’ was the first track written with producer Courtney Ballard,” frontman Bradley Walden tells Loudwire, where the new track made its exclusive debut.

“I remember my roommate saying, ‘This is the best thing you’ve ever done,’ and I felt that too. This song is a lesson learned, you can’t cry over spilt milk. You’ll probably spill it again.”

Listen to “Don’t Cry” above.

“Don’t Cry” will join “Givin’ Up” on Emarosa’s new album, Peach Club. The 11-track record is due out Feb. 8 through Hopeless Records. Pre-orders for the upcoming studio effort are currently available on the band’s website where they are offering a slew of bundles. Peach Club is the follow-up to quartet’s 2016 release, 131.

In support of the new album, the band hit the North American road during the last couple of months of 2018. They will once again hit the touring circuit for their European-centric tour. The trek will kick off tonight at the Craufurd Arms in Wolverton, United Kingdom and conclude a few weeks later on Jan. 29 at the TivoliVrendenburg in the Netherlands.

After concluding the European excursion, the group will return to the United States for a handful of album release shows in Philadelphia, Dallas, Mesa, Los Angeles, and Honolulu.

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.”

Watch the dance-centric music video for “Givin’ Up” above.

Emarosa are currently on the road with Hands Like Houses for their final tour of 2018. Tonight, both bands will hit the stage at the Bottom Lounge in Chicago. The tour will conclude on Dec. 11 at the Rock House Bar & Grill in El Paso. The upcoming tour itinerary as well as the track listing for Peach Club can be found below.
