Embrace announce new song, EP and album

EmbraceBritish band Embrace have announced details of a new song, EP and forthcoming album.

The band posted the video for new song ‘Refugees’ on YouTube yesterday, and shared details of an EP of the same name, which will be released on 17th February. An eponymously titled new album will be released on 28th April.

In an interview with NME, frontman Danny McNamara revealed that the band had been out of the spotlight for so long because they didn’t want to release any new music unless it was “better than our debut album.”

“That was the rule we set, and I think we’ve done that. If I was going to explain Embrace to a person that had never heard us, I’d play them ‘All You Good, Good People’, from our first album, ‘Ashes’ from Out Of Nothing and this new album from start to finish,” he said.

Discussing the eight year period since their last album, McNamara said: “…I became so disillusioned with the whole thing… Eventually the writing bug came back, as I think it does with all creative people who lose their motivation. Rich got it first, he was working in a studio, and wrote some stuff that sounded like nothing we’d ever done before, and then I started writing again and it all spiralled from there. We’ve been writing since then and I’ve been telling people the album would be finished ‘in a month or so’ for the last five years. We didn’t think it would take so long, but were in no rush.”
