Seattle's Emery deliver music via Emeryland online community

Online Community

THE SEATTLE-based band Emery, described as "progressive screamo rock legends", have released a fan-only four-song EP, 'Dead End'. It emanates from Emeryland, an online community centred around a private Discord server, a Twitch channel, and an IndieGoGo campaign. Read a press release, "The impetus for Emeryland comes from the recognition that the music industry has changed. Gone are the days where middle-men were necessary to control budgets, release schedules, and distribution. To deliver a steady stream of music written and recorded right in front of their fans, Emery seeks to crowd-fund a steady stream of small, monthly contributions, while sustaining a community unfettered by social media algorithms or rent-seeking third parties." CR
