Emarosa is a post-hardcore band from Lexington, Kentucky. Founded in 2006, the band signed with Rise Records for its full-length debut, 2008's Relativity. The album introduced elements of R&B and alternative rock to the band's sound, and proved popular in the post-hardcore underground, selling well enough to break into the Billboard 200 albums chart and also register on the Heatseekers chart.
The self-titled Emarosa album from 2010 outperformed the band's debut, peaking at number 69. 2014's Versus, its highest-charting album to date, peaked at number 61 on the Billboard 200. Their first release for Hopeless Records, 131, was released in 2016. ~ Jason Birchmeier
