Viral pop punk polymath RØRY has released her debut EP Good Die Young today, with lead single ‘My Funeral Song’ featuring Loveless (which garnered over 12,000 pre-saves in total before release). Stream the EP here now.
RØRY will be making a live debut this summer too, headlining a sold-out London’s Camden Assembly on August 25th.
Good Die Young is an expansive and reflective confession from RØRY, and an uninhibited documentation of the past ten years of her life. Speaking about the new EP she says: “Good Die Young is for my mother. I poured my broken heart and lost soul into this record in hopes of making sense of myself, making sense of my twenties. The lost decade. I drank, I fucked, I fucked up. Searching for a way to be ok without her. It’s an honour and privilege to go back and tell these stories, from a calmer, healthier place.”
A testament to RØRY’s status as a multi-platinum selling songwriter who has written for the likes of Charli XCX, NOAHFINNCE and All American Rejects – Good Die Young explores an impressive and cathartic range of emotions and sonics. From stripped back yet powerful ballads that showcase her heart wrenching vocal delivery (‘Jesus and John Lennon’), sensitive alt pop songs (‘Small Victories’) to buoyant and infectious pop punk crowd pleasers (‘My Funeral Song’) and even melodic post hardcore (‘SADCORE’), Good Die Young breaks free of constraints, and into an empowering new light.
Fusing the punchiness of 00s emo pop-punk legends like Blink 182 and Paramore, with the poppier sensibilities of Gen Z’s fresh take on the genre, RØRY’s electrifying musicianship came to life in 2018 after Roxanne Emery got sober; removing the middle of her name to represent the time she lost to addiction and mental health struggles. She has well and truly cemented herself as a hotly sought after songwriter, with three top ten hits (including the multi-platinum selling ‘Post Malone’ by Sam Feldt) and well over 1 billion streams.
In her solo career so far, RØRY has graced the cover of Spotify’s All New Rock and YouTube’s Noise Riot, been selected as BBC Introducing Record of The Week, as well as eclectic support from from BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders, Kerrang, PopJustice and Rock Sound, with the latter calling previous single and EP track ‘Uncomplicated’ “an emotional, sentimental and crushing pop-punk belter.” ‘Help Your Friends Get Sober’ also taken from the EP, has also gone viral on Tik Tok with over 900,000 views, connecting with those who have lost loved ones to addiction.
