New album project: http://www.EmeryLP7.com
DIY has never been more embodied than by one of the hardest working acts in the industry, Emery. Choosing to go their own way after a fruitful and longstanding relationship with Tooth & Nail Records, vocalist Toby Morrell and guitarist Matt Carter embarked on their own dream, forming BadChristian. BadChristian is a media entity now acting as record label, blog, and podcast. Through their new and blossoming self-made home, Emery released 2015’s You Were Never Alone, receiving massive praise from longtime fans and critics alike. In a very popular move, the four piece recruited former bassist Devin Shelton to rejoin for the release, injecting the record with styles that haven’t been present in any Emery record since Shelton’s departure. YWNA charted number 1 on Billboard's Top Christian Albums and number 69 on Billboard's Top 200 chart. The band’s sixth full-length album went on to sell more units in it’s first week than any of their previous label-released albums. For their first self-released product, Emery utilized their loyal fan base along with a whole new wave of Emery supporters who have sprung up from the popularity of The BadChristian podcast, to crowd fund the record and produce ten music videos for YWNA. In addition to their traditional club tours, Emery has further embraced the DIY ethos by gracing living rooms, coffee shops and parking lots to bring You Were Never Alone to fans across America. This new year promises to bring more surprises from the four piece, including side projects and more fan interactive content.
Toby did an interview recently with JFS on touring, the new Emery album, podcasting, and the new Matt and Toby album.
"Every record you write, you want to try to figure out who you are, where you are, what you want it to sound like, and what are YOU going to be happy with. I've always felt that way, that I want to be happy with the record, and I want to be the biggest fan of it." - Toby
