EMA has announced new fall tour dates. This announcement comes as EMA (ex-Gowns member Erika M. Anderson’s new project) winds down her summer tour. EMA plans to journey across the pond to play in the U.K. and across Europe. The tour kicks off in September at Portland’s MusicfestNW. Afterward EMA heads on a headlining tour of the U.K., Austria, Denmark, Switzerland and Belgium. When the band gets back to the States in October it’ll join CSS on a North American tour as a supporting act that includes a stop at our very own CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival.


EMA’s debut, Past Life Martyred Saints, has been quite the critical darling since its May 2011 release, and the band is quickly becoming the next big thing. CMJ was at EMA’s show in New York City last week, and Erika M. Anderson’s new band is one worth checking out. The group is newly put together and has some kinks to work out, but things should be running smoothly by the time EMA is back this October.
