From TikTok to the World.

If you're not familiar with Games We Play, now is the perfect time to get obsessed. 

The musical moniker of Emmyn Calleiro since 2018, the project has been picking up more and more attention thanks to the power of TikTok over the last year. 

And it has resulted in Fueled By Ramen, and more specifically DCD2 Records, signing him. 

How amazing is that?

And you only have to listen to the brilliant 'I Hope You're Happy' to see why they were so interested. 

Emotionally self-aware lyrics, big heavy riffs and a brilliantly fun attitude, it is everything that you could ever want from a pop-punk track in 2022. 

Pete Wentz had this to say about why he wanted Emmyn on his team:

"In a time where the world seems to get so much serotonin funded by a committee of likes and comments on social media platforms, true authenticity is scarce but invaluable. This is what drew me to Games We Play-it's all there-cohesive, funny, sad-self-aware and ambitious all folded inside of true punk rock hooks. It feels like a throwback, but from the future."

And Emmyn added this:

"My whole team-Johnny Minardi (Fueled By Ramen), manager Nano, and Pete-are all DIY hardcore pop punk kids. They all understand the place I was in a couple of months before this happened. My dad was in a band, and I love people who grew up in the same scene. Once I met Johnny, I was like, 'He's my friend!' Then, Pete and I hit off instantly, and he's a genuine friend now. They don't want me to be anything I'm not. They want me to be me. I can't wait for everybody to hear the new music I have coming!"

Here's 'I Hope You're Happy':

And here is his brilliant announcement video:
