Embrace have announced their first UK tour in seven years with 9 live dates this May. With 3 number one albums, 6 top ten singles, sold out arena shows, over 2.5 million UK album 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 new tour and fantastic new album conveying a more raw and darker sound whilst still keeping their signature anthems and huge choruses. This week, Embrace will play 4 intimate shows in Scotland and have just announced a 9-date UK tour in May including a headline show at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire with the tour kicking off in Liverpool on 9th May.
