Founding member Devin Shelton (lead vocals and guitar for Emery) has announced his decision to take a break from the band. Shelton made an official statement saying, "I just wanted to let you all know that I am taking an indefinite hiatus from Emery. This has been a very tough decision for me, since Emery has been an important part of my life for over a decade. I'm not saying I will never do anything else with Emery, but things change and life goes on, no matter how much I will miss it. Thanks so much for all your support over the years and I hope everyone continues to follow Emery all the same."
