Quintessential hard rock band Emery recently released an album full of reimagined Emery classics.
Revival was released November 17 on the heels of a fall tour that featured Emery with Civilian, Loyals, In Your Memory and Funeral Portrait. The new album, which was funded entirely by a crowdfunding campaign which raised $50,000 in one day earlier this year, is "a full-length album of classics completely reimagined" and a great way to "soothe yourself while we work on new songs," according to the band in a post on social media.
The record features acoustic or softer versions of Emery classics such as "So Cold I Can See My Breath," "As Your Voice Fades" and "The Smile, The Face." Revival is now available on Spotify and other digital formats, as well as a physical copy on their website at emerymusic.com.
The full track listing for the record is as follows:
1. Story About a Man With a Bad Heart
2. Studying Politics
3. Under Serious Attack
4. The Smile, the Face
5. The Ponytail Parade
6. After the Devil Beats His Wife
7. In Shallow Seas We Sail
8. So Cold I Could See My Breath
9. As Your Voice Fades
10. Taken for a Bath
Since 2001, Emery has enjoyed success as an alternative rock and hardcore band in both Christian and mainstream circles. In 2014, Toby Morrell, Matt Carter and former bassist Joey Svendsen started a blog and podcast called BadChristian, which also serves as their own label and has since turned into a "thriving community that focuses on interacting with culture from an alternative Christian point of view."
