Emarosa is a post-hardcore band hailing from Lexington, Kentucky, United States. Formed in 2006 as Corsets Are Cages, they released their first EP titled This Is Your Way Out. The band released their debut album in 2008, titled Relativity, which featured new vocalist Jonny Craig from Dance Gavin Dance. Their follow up self-titled album was produced and recorded by Brian McTernan at Salad Days Studio in Baltimore, MD, and released in June 2010.
On April 11, 2011, Alternative Press announced that Craig had been kicked out of Emarosa. The band stated that "as of today, Jonny Craig is no longer a member of Emarosa. This decision has been a hard one to make, but we feel it is in the best interest for the band going forward." Tides of Man vocalist, Tilian Pearson is currently a touring member for the band filling in for Craig. According to an Alternative Press interview with the band, their ideal vocalist would not be like Craig tone-wise. "We’re not looking for Jonny Craig 2.0. We just want to find someone who can bring something unique to the band," stated Stewart.
It was rumored former Tides of Man vocalist, Tilian Pearson had joined the band, but was later discredited by Pearson himself. However, on December 2013, a demo song from their sessions with Tilian called "Supercow" was leaked on tumblr and YouTube. Tilian eventually replaced Jonny Craig in his former band, Dance Gavin Dance. On April 6, the band posted that they are still looking for a new vocalist. Bassist Will Sowers stated that the band will release a new album in the summer of 2012, although this did not materialize.
Jonny Craig said in an interview he has been collaborating with Emarosa on new songs. He says that while he's not officially a member, he is open to come back. However he later revealed that the band's long-vacant vocalist position has been filled by Bradley Walden, formerly of Squid the Whale. On August 15, 2013, Emarosa stated via Tumblr and Twitter that pre-production for their 3rd studio album had begun. On January, the band confirmed on Twitter that the album has been tracked and it will feature letlive.'s vocalist Jason Aalon Butler on guest vocals on one of the tracks. On March 28, the band posted a new video that features studio interviews and a new song preview, announcing that the new album will be titled Versus.
