Indie stalwarts Embrace celebrate 21 years since the release of their iconic debut, The Good Will Out this year. The band, who have released a total of seven albums to date, dropped their acclaimed debut record in 1998. Among its 14 tracks, the album featured era-defining singles All You Good Good People and My Weakness Is None Of Your Business. Other albums include last year’s Love Is A Basic Need, which dropped last March.
Members Danny and Richard McNamara, Steve Firth, Mickey Dale and Mike Heaton, took a break following the release of This New Day in 2006, returning eight years later with their self-titled album.
Now, following on from their sold-out London Roundhouse show last month – and with their huge hometown gig at the 6,000-capacity Halifax Piece Hall in June also now sold out – Embrace will be signing-off a very special year with a huge concert at Alexandra Palace Theatre on Friday 6 December 2019.
At the show, the band will be celebrating their two most successful albums to date, their aforementioned debut and 2004’s double platinum-selling Out Of Nothing, both of which topped the UK album charts upon release. At this new gig, the band will play songs exclusively from these two records.
Embrace singer Danny McNamara said, "Selling out the Roundhouse so quickly was a surprise to be honest, but selling all 6,000 tickets for Halifax, and doing our biggest ever hometown gig 21 years after our debut album came out is just crazy, stuff like that doesn’t happen in real life!"
"We wanted to round-off the year with something special, when we saw the Ally Pally venue we knew that was the place to do it, it’s going to be a special night".
