EMERSON DRIVE RELEASE NEW ALBUM ‘ROLL’ ON NOVEMBER 9

 

The multi-award winning Emerson Drive release their fifth studio album, Roll on November 9, 2012 through ABC Music/Universal Music Australia. The new collection has been inspired by a love for the road and the experiences the band have shared while touring North America and Australia over the past decade.

The lead single from Roll, ‘She's My Kind of Crazy,’ was co-penned by band members Brad Mates and Danick Dupelle, with Nashville songwriter Bobby Pinson. In addition to debuting at the top of the Canadian iTunes Country Singles Chart, the track has been the highest-selling Canadian country song for over two months. Ten of the eleven songs on Roll were written or co-written by band members, with guitarist Dupelle putting his stamp on all 10 of those songs.

The album's follow-up single is, "Let It Roll", which Brad and Danick co-wrote with Chris Thorsteinson and Dave Wasyliw of Doc Walker. It marks the first time two Canadian country bands have ever released a track together. The two acts debuted the tune on the 2012 Canadian Country Music Awards telecast in September.
It’s been just over 10 years since Emerson Drive brought their first album into stores in May of 2002. That self-titled collection, out on the Dreamworks label, introduced the band with the debut hit single, ‘I Should Be Sleeping’ and they later topped the US charts with the single, ‘Moments.’
 
“This album has energy and motion,” says ED founder and lead singer Brad Mates. “As a band and as individuals, the idea of rolling down the road to make music has been such a part of the life of Emerson Drive. Some of us have families now, and it gets harder to get on the bus and go. But we‟re doing what we love, and that‟s why we do it.”
