Emily’s Army Premieres New Video For “War” Via Guitar World


LOS ANGELES, CA – MAY 9, 2013 – East Bay rockers Emily’s Army today premiered the music video for their new song “War” via Guitar World. “War” is featured on their forthcoming album album Lost At Seventeen, which is out June 11th on Rise Records. The album was produced by Billie Joe Armstrong. To see the full post and watch the video, click HERE.

The band also recently released “Avenue”, the first single off of Lost At Seventeen. Check out the lyric video HERE.

Lost At Seventeen is the follow up to the Emily’s Army 2011 debut Don’t Be A Dick which was praised by everyone from Alternative Press who called the album “overwhelmingly tight and poppy” toEntertainment Weekly who applauded the album’s “raggedly sharp guitar licks.” What stands out the most on Lost At Seventeen is the band’s rapid growth as musicians and songwriters. Equal parts scuzzed-out Oakland garage punk and sunny California surf pop, Lost At Seventeen showcases the band’s knack for crafting hook-driven, smart pop punk anthems that most strongly call to mind the band’s primary influences Operation Ivy, Ramones, The Clash and The Replacements.

The new album focuses on the inescapable uncertainty we all feel as teenagers as best displayed in the title track “Lost At 17” and single “Avenue” which induce immediate nostalgia of what it feels like to have your whole life ahead of you. The album also addresses the nation’s current political climate with the brash rocker “I Am The President”, in which vocalist Cole Becker proclaims “Democrats, Republicans… It’s all the same, I’ve had enough of it.”

Emily’s Army is comprised of Cole Becker (vocals/guitar), Max Becker (vocals/bass), Travis Neumann (guitar), and Joey Armstrong (drums). The band’s name comes from Max and Cole’s teenage cousin Emily, who 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.  At a time when young bands are homogenized and tailor made for consumption and eventual regurgitation, Emily’s Army is a breath of fresh air.

Pre-orders are available now HERE. The band will hit cities across the country as part of the 19thannual Vans Warped Tour. See below for a complete list of dates.
