Rocky Loves Emily

Hit The Road with Sparks The Rescue and Aristo On

The Surrender Your Booty Tour June 11-July 3

Secrets Don’t Make Friends LP Out Now on Tooth & Nail Records

Detroit, MI’s Rocky Loves Emily are hitting the road with Sparks the Rescue and Aristo, on the Surrender Your Booty Tour, presented by The JW Agency. The pop-rock outfit will be out in support of their new Tooth and Nail Records LP, Secrets Don’t Make Friends, which calls, “The most promising pop release of 2012.”

Produced by Matt Grabe (The Maine, The Summer Set) the new album displays much growth since RLE’s 2010 American Dream debut EP. As guitarist Andrew Stevens explains, “The band grew into who we are as people between the EP and this album. We figured out who we are and put it into music.”

As singer Brandon James Ellis says “We just wanted more real songs. Stuff from the heart about the things we were going through as people. It’s an album we can all be proud of.”

The boys in Rocky Loves Emily are eager to get back on the road to play the new songs for their fans on the Surrender Your Booty Tour, which is also the first headlining tour that Sparks The Rescue has been out on in over 2 years. Sparks the Rescue is excited to be playing songs off their new self-titled EP which is scheduled for release in early summer.

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
