The band formed in 2004 when Max found out that his brother, Cole, and their friend, Joey, were forming a band called, "The Raining Souls". They didn't have a bass player, and Max was in his first months of guitar lessons, so he decided to learn the Bass. After two years the band changed the name from "The Raining Souls" to "The Clocks", name that didn't stick out for too long because they discovered that were a lot of bands with such name. Then Cole and Max remembered their cousin, Emily, who suffers from a disease called Cystic Fibrosis. And Emily's Army is a family based group that works to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. Finally, they decided to call themselves Emily's Army, 'cuz it could raise awareness of Cystic Fibrosis. Later in 2008, Travis joined the band, forming what we know today, as, Emily's Army. Emily's Army current line-up is, Cole Becker (Vocals/Rhythm Guitar); Max Becker (Bass); Joey Armstrong a.k.a. Chakka (Drums) and Travis Neuman a.k.a. T Bag (Lead Guitar).
