Anyone who has any background knowledge on Kentucky melodic rockers Emarosa will be more than aware of their well-documented and turbulent past. Following the recruitment of frontman Bradley Walden (ex-Squid The Whale) back in 2014, it was almost as if they were reborn. Now four albums deep with the release of ‘131’, their second since Walden‘s joining, it finally seems as if the band are fully back on their feet to pick up where they left off.
At the Manchester date of their headline UK tour, their first in almost six years, we caught up with the guys to talk about ‘131’, where the title and artwork came from, what the representation of the fox on their albums means to them, why they moved from Rise Records to Hopeless Records, their plans to release a ‘131 – Reimagined’ EP, and a bunch more.
