    The entire Emery song catalog is embossed by major themes such as time, memory, language, and romantic tragedy.
    Emery is a post-hardcore/rock band currently signed to Tooth & Nail Records. They have performed at the Cornerstone Festival in Bushnell, Illinois, and they have performed on the Warped Tour lineup, they also accompanied Underoath on their Australian tour in June 2007. They were also featured at Spirit West Coast's "Rock the Park" festival in Chino, California.

    Emery was formed in 2001 in Rock Hill, South Carolina when four recent college graduates decided to pursue music full-time. Upon making their decision, they also uprooted to move across country to Seattle in search of a more diverse music scene. "We actually left for Seattle at 7:30am on September 11, 2001," recounts Studley, "We didn't hear about the attacks (on the World Trade Center) until we were in North Carolina. We stopped to get some food and the waitress, who was somehow misinformed, told us that tourists were attacking New York. We later found out that she meant terrorists. It was an intense day to move across the country."

    The intensities become more positive as time passed and the band settled to find their niche in the Seattle music scene. In a matter of months they had won over the staff of Seattle-based Tooth & Nail Records, signed a deal, and recorded their upcoming album entitled, "The Weak's End" at Black Lodge Studio in Eudora, Kansas with producer Ed Rose. The songs, carrying a perfect blend of all the depth of hardcore styling layered with delicate melodies and often times fragile vocal overtones, are not only beautiful but also meaningful.

    Their second release, Titles "The Question" (August 2, 2005 - Tooth & Nail Records) deals with a more meaningful and oftentimes less screaming hardcore style, while maintaining a rough sorrowed sound. For "The Question", Emery uses the first track as a catapult to an entire story. The "question" that the album is really asking is "Where were you when I was," and the rest of the question is brought out amongst the titles of the tracks, i.e: Where were you when I was, 'So cold I could see my breath', 'The Weakest', 'In a Lose, Lose Situation.' As the artwork states, "The Question" is handed from person to person, each question dealing with a different problem for different people. Emery takes all of the problems from the world, throws them together, and explains them all in a 12-track story. The band says what people desperately need to hear.

    While touring with Underoath in Australia, Emery announced that they were releasing a new album.

    The album was leaked onto the internet before its official release." I'm Only A Man" was officially released on October 2, 2007 by Tooth & Nail Records.

    The album got mixed reviews for its change in musical style. Emery decided to experiment with more synthesizers in their record and focused more on vocal parts and less on the screaming vocal parts. Emery also released a deluxe edition to the album which was released on the same day. The deluxe edition featured four acoustic songs that were recorded while on the Take Action Tour with The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. The iTunes version of the deluxe edition also brought a bonus track called "Whoa! Man".

    On October 28, 2008 Emery released an 8 song EP titled "While Broken Hearts Prevail "

    On June 2nd, 2009 Emery Released "In Shallow Seas We Sail " , there are 13 songs and one bonus track.
    The released got mainly positive reviews, with Absolutepunk.net giving emery a score of 84%, claiming that the last two realeases were quite bad except the songs "The Edge Of The World " and "The Smile , The Face " that were in Broken Hears Prevail but were also included with In " Shallow Seas We Sail "

    On March 28, 2011, Emery released a stream of their new album We Do What We Want on AOL.com.[citation needed] Their album will be released to purchase on March 29.
