NASHVILLE, TN – August 24, 2011 – Come&Live! artist The Ember Days will release their newest full length, Emergency, on Tuesday, August 30th. The record will be available as a free download at, and major online retailers such as iTunes. This CD meets high anticipation from fans and critics as the band’s first full length since 2007.

New Zealand natives, The Ember Days did something slightly unconventional with this record – they recorded it while they were in the studio in 2010, working on the Finger Painting EP. However, this musical effort houses a completely different side of TED. While the last EP was very instrumental and considered “music to read your Bible to,” this one is heavier, darker and just plain epic.

“It’s definitely a lot heavier at times,” says vocalist/guitarist Jason Belcher. “Only one out of the 10 songs is instrumental, which is a big shift from the last one. Vocally, Janell is doing a lot of stuff on this record that she has never done before. It was a big stretch for all of us, so I’m really excited to share it.”

The band’s mission remains the same: to create music that will enable listeners to deeper encounter the presence of God and inspire praise and thankfulness. It’s a wakeup call to our generation – a plea to a sleeping church. “The title came from a dream I had of a burning house. It was on fire and there was sufficient time to put the fire out, but everyone in the house was asleep.” The ensuing lyrics also come from a place of personal growth and revelation. “God has been showing me how I need to match my priorities with His and love others as He loves me…with an unconditional love.”

The Ember Days aspire to love with an undying love, despite differing beliefs or lifestyles. This is apparent while listening to Emergency. To hear the record for yourself, please respond to this email or send a request to Interviews and album reviews are welcome. Cover art and tracklisting are included below.
