TEEN PUNK ROCKERS EMILY’S ARMY MAKES DEBUT WITH DON’T BE A DICK JUNE 14 ON ADELINE RECORDS
PRODUCED BY BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG
Teenage pop-punk group Emily’s Army is gearing up for the release of their full-length debut, Don’t Be A Dick, due June 14 on Adeline Records. Produced by Billie Joe Armstrong, the album features heartfelt teenage anthems dealing in cautionary tales, politics and the pressures of adolescence. The record will be available digitally as well as on vinyl.
The 14-song set was recorded and mixed in four days at
’s Jingletown Recordings with the help of engineer Chris Dugan. Emily’s Army counts the rich Oakland music scene and East Bay Gilman Street amongst their influences, along with classic power pop, and garage rock.
Emily’s Army consists of prolific songwriting brothers Max and Cole Becker, guitarist Travis Neumann and drummer Joey Armstrong. At the ripe age of 15, 16 and 17 years old, the Oakland-based band has already spent two years touring up and down the West Coast.
The band takes its name from Max and Cole’s 15 year-old 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.
