Devin Shelton, former / present / part-time guitarist for Seattle via South Carolina based post-hardcore band Emery, has announced that he’s reemerging from the indefinite hiatus he took from Emery in 2011 and playing some shows with his close friends in the band as well as recording a solo album. The album is being crowdfunded on Indiegogo and, according to the campaign, is largely being made for his fans and the people he says he can’t seem to forget.

Over and over again, I have heard people say how our music has changed their lives. I remember one person who said he was driving down the road and thinking about how he was going to kill himself. Our song came on in his car and he decided to turn around and go home. I don’t know how that happened, but it makes me believe that music matters, and it makes me believe that making music is a good thing. I’ve heard endless stories of songs alleviating depression, suicidal thoughts, broken hearts, bitterness, self-loathing, lost faith, and so much more, from people of all walks of life.

Within less than 24 hours the campaign has already raised $5,000 of it’s needed $15,000, placing it at 33% funded. The demos for the new album are already finished up and recording will begin in Spring 2016. It’s of note to mention that it also states that “Devin will be working on new Emery music as well.” The Emery guys always seem to be on their toes running the BadChristian record label and podcast, forming the Jabberjaw Media Group to run their podcast network, putting out a new album last year, and released a Christmas EP at the end of last year, but it looks like we might be getting even more music from them in the near future as well.

While on the road with Emery for their acoustic tour, Shelton premiered some of his new material and one of the songs was even recorded. Give the tune a listen below and be sure to help the talented and kind man out by visiting the campaign page.
