Emarosa is a post-hardcore band from Lexington, KY, affiliated with Rise Records. Founded in 2006, the band underwent several lineup changes before settling on the sextet of Jonny Craig (vocals; formerly of the Rise Records-affiliated band Dance Gavin Dance), ER White (guitar), Jonas Ladekjaer (guitar), Will Sowers (bass), Lukas Koszewski (drums), and Jordan Stewart (keyboards). This lineup recorded the band's seven-track debut EP, This Is Your Way Out (2007), released by Standby Records. They switched to Rise Records for their full-length album debut, Relativity (2008). The album proved popular in the post-hardcore underground, selling well enough to break into the Billboard 200 albums chart and also register on the Top Heatseekers chart. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
