Their first EP, "Cocktail verde" was launched in 2002, with the songs "Superstea", "Pisica", "Supradoza de vise (feat. Butch)", "Ursu'", "Hus-Avi", "Copacii infloriti" and "Vara vara", with the single "Copacii Infloriti". However, they were scarcely promoted, the label dropped them and they remained underground. In 2004 they started becoming more and more popular, leading to the launch of "Rom, Fum si Vanilie" on November 19th, 2005, with the singles "Doi" (which was filmed a year or so before) and "Da Vrei". Although they announced "Dub Shot" as a single, and even filmed part of it, it was never released.
In 2007 E.M.I.L. took a break from concerts, having but 3 concerts(Peninsula&stufstock fest, and opening act for NOFX). Rumors have it that they're going for a new album, but fans are skeptical.
Bands that influence E.M.I.L. are Green Day and Sublime. Stoi is a Green Day fanatic, and received Billie Joe's guitar in 2005 from a concert in Budapest where he was called on stage.
