Max and Cole Becker met Joey Armstrong as young kids when their father, an architect, built the Armstrongs’ house. Joey had been playing drums since the age of four. After watching “School of Rock”, Cole and Joey were inspired to start a band in 2004. Cole took up guitar and recruited Max to play bass with them. They started as “The Raining Souls”. In 2006, they decided to change their name to “The Clocks”, but discovered several other bands had the same name. Then, the idea came to them to name the band Emily’s Army in honor of Max and Cole’s cousin, Emily. The band has since changed their name to SWMRS.
