In 2004, Emanuel shortened their band name, in conjunction with the musical renovation they underwent. Even though their line-up never changed throughout the six years since the band's formation, their sound evolved drastically from "poppy and terrible, it's kind of embarrassing", as singer/guitarist Breen put it, to a darker, more mature blend of indie and emo genres. With cynical lyrics and aggressive guitar melodies, the band's new sound landed them a record deal with Vagrant Records, who released their debut album Soundtrack to a Headrush in March 2005. In late 2005, the band added guitarist Devin Triplett as a fifth member, with Breen concentrating solely on vocals.
In January 2007, the band entered the studio to begin recording the follow-up to Soundtrack to a Headrush, tentatively titled Black Earth Tiger according to Breen.
Listen here - I have a lot of love for this band.
