It’s not a phase, mom! That’s basically what the 2025 Emo’s Not Dead Cruise lineup says. The Used headlines the tropical excursion with BoysLikeGirls, Chiodos, Hawthorne Heights, and many more donning bathing suits to surf the ocean waves. While pre-sale is sold out, staterooms will be released weekly on Fridays at 8 AM PT.

Tropical emos who love the sun and heat can set their eyes on docking in Miami, FL on February 4, 2025, and embarking on the sea to Nassau, Bahamas through February 8. 

Along with the headliners, include the second scheduled show for pop-punkers, Hey Monday. Frontwoman Cassadee Pope posted on her Instagram about the appearance, “Can not WAIT to join year 3 of the Emo’s Not Dead Cruise,” she writes. “[I] Will be playing Hey Monday stuff as well as some of my solo project! See you all aboard the sad ship.”

YouTuber and cruise creator, Matt Cutshall, will perform with his band, Your Broken Hero. Attendees can look forward to a DJ party by Emo Social, along with the opportunity to engage in live band karaoke provided by the Emo Band, catering to fans who wish to indulge in a bit of faux performance themselves.

This year’s cruise featured Yellowcard, Underøath, Mayday Parade, Story Of The Year, and others. The first Emo’s Not Dead Cruise took place in November 2022, and boasted appearances from Dashboard Confessional, New Found Glory, and many more.

Fans can sign up for alerts for cabin openings on the Emo’s Not Dead Cruise website to secure a chance at sailing the seas next winter. More performers are still to be announced, but check out who’s been announced so far, so you can get oh-so sad (in a good way)!
