They’re bringing all their material, including set staple and lead single, “Dead Man’s Shoes,” which was their breakout track in the US, charting on the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks in 2012.
At Emerge, The Virginmarys will be supported at their Mumbai gig on December 13th at Hard Rock CafÃ©, Worli, by local alt rock act Last Remaining Light, led by vocalist Siddharth Basrur.
