Yorkshire 5-piece Embrace have announced their return, releasing their first album in seven years with their self-titled new album ‘Embrace’ released on 28th April through Cooking Vinyl.
With 3 number one albums, 6 top ten singles, sold out arena shows, over 2.5 million record sales and their last record achieving both #1 album and #2 single, Embrace were on the crest of a wave when they suddenly vanished without a trace. But now they are back with a fantastic new album conveying a more raw and darker sound whilst still keeping their signature anthems and huge choruses. Embrace are set to return with a bang.
Embrace are brothers singer Danny McNamara and guitarist Richard McNamara, bassist Steve Firth, keyboardist Mickey Dale and drummer Mike Heaton and the band recorded the new record in their own studio in Halifax over the last three years.
The first release from the record will be the single ‘Refugees’ which will be released as part of a 4-track EP on 17th February, giving fans a taster of the new record with three brand new songs not featured on the new album. The tracklisting for the EP is ‘Refugees’, ‘Chameleon’, ‘Decades’ and ‘Bullets’. ‘Refugees’ is an instantly catchy track that launches into a huge anthemic chorus with vocals from both McNamara brothers backed by electro beats and epic guitars.
Embrace recently performed two secret shows for fans in their hometowns of Bradford and Halifax. Embrace will now play 4 intimate shows in Scotland with tickets going on sale on Friday 17th January.
The 4 dates are as follows:
Thurs 13th Dundee Fat Sams
Fri 14th Aberdeen The Lemon Tree
Sat 15th Forres The Loft
Sun 16th Inverness Ironworks
