If you ask for words of wisdom from the mouth of teenage pop/punk band Emily’s Army, it would be “Don’t Be A Dick!” Influenced by the East Bay music scene, and classic garage rock, Emily’s Army creates heartfelt teenage anthems.
The band members have known each other for most of their lives and discovered their passion for music together. Brothers Max and Cole’s 15 year old cousin Emily was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis in 1998 and has suffered from the disease her entire life. In tribute, the band adopted the name Emily’s Army which also happens to be the moniker for a fundraising organization in their cousin’s honor.
Emily’s Army has been playing clubs and shows up and down the California coast for 2 years –
The boys hit the studio in 2010 with engineer, Chris Dugan and producer Billie Joe Armstrong. The entire album was recorded and mixed in 4 days.
The new video “The Rescuers” debuted yesterday. The track is off the band’s latest release, Lost At Seventeen.
