Embrace are an English indie rock band from Bailiff Bridge, Brighouse, consisting of brothers Danny and Richard McNamara, alongside bassist Steve Firth, keyboardist Mickey Dale and drummer Mike Heaton.
Formed in 1993, the band released their debut album, ‘The Good Will Out’, in 1998, which went to #1 in the UK Album Chart. ‘Drawn From Memory’ was released in 2000, and was followed by ‘If You’ve Never Been’, in 2001, ‘Out of Nothing’, in 2004 and ‘This New Day’ in 2006, before the band went on hiatus. They returned with a self-titled album in 2014. In the past, they've supported Coldplay and played Hope and Glory Festival.
Their latest album, 'Love Is A Basic Need', came out in March 2018, followed by an orchestral version later in the summer.
Embrace will celebrate the 21st anniversary of their 1998 debut album, 'The Good Will Out', with a UK tour in spring 2019, but before that, two Christmas shows have been lined up in Birmingham and Southampton.

Following a seven year hiatus, indie-rockers Embrace resurrected their career in superb fashion on 2014’s electronically flavoured self-titled effort. But, rather than continuing down that road, they have immediately returned to their signature sound on ‘Love is a Basic Need’, an uneven record that’s bogged down by an overload of decent, but rarely spectacular, ballads.

Some folks are set in their ways. Maybe they fear change, or maybe they just know their own minds. Indie-rockers Embrace have always attracted a portion of fans who don’t like the group’s more experimental efforts.
