About Embrace

WELCOME TO THE SECRET LIST

So this is it, the place where it all begins. Welcome to The Secret List!

First things first, THANK YOU!

Thank you for subscribing, thank you for your support and your patronage, without which we’d be nothing. Being in Embrace is the best job in the world. We get to write and record our music, and play in front of the most incredible crowds in the world. Year after year after year. As a musician it doesn’t get any better than that! So believe us when we say that we know how lucky we are, and it's all because of you. So THANK YOU!!!

So what is The Secret List?

The Secret List is our attempt to capture the feeling of excitement that we got when we first started doing secret gigs back in the day. But instead of just covering the live aspect of things, we want it to encompass everything we do as a band, and maybe even a lot of stuff we've never done before.

When we started doing secret gigs the idea was simple, find a new way of putting on gigs that was more fun, more spontaneous, and didn’t involve us having to fit in to someone else’s model for how these things should work. Some of our favourite memories of being in Embrace revolve around experiences we had on those secret gig adventures.

Whether it was simple stuff like hiding behind a bed sheet hung from a tree branch (our dressing room) in Ladybower forest, before going “on stage”, or meeting a bunch of excited fans at the airport before flying off to Majorca for the weekend, or camping out with the fans in a quarry in Cornwall. It was the excitement of doing something that we’d never done before, and crossing our fingers that it wasn’t all going to end in disaster. It was the excitement of doing things differently, doing whatever we wanted to do, for no other reason than because we just felt like doing it.

And in essence that’s what we want The Secret List to be. It’s our attempt at coming up with a new and exciting way of connecting with you, a way of connecting that provides a more rewarding experience for all of us, by cutting out the middle men and dealing directly with you wherever possible.

The band is on a roll at the moment, writing and creating in a way that we haven't since before the first album. Some of you will remember that back then we had so much material we would release four track EP’s with each song often as strong as the A-Side. Now almost 25 years later we have come full circle.

Using the Secret List we will release all the extra tracks that we would have previously released on Ep’s. Not only that, but as well as all the brand new material, we will also be releasing demos, alternative takes, great pieces of music the list goes on. Basically if we want you to hear a new recording we’ll let you hear it, there and then, whatever time of day it is, unhindered by any record company or A&R interference. If we feel like live-streaming a set of Krautrock classics from the studio late one evening we’ll do it! There are no rules!!!

We’re also looking forward to letting you hear how the songs for the next album come together. Making music is always a journey, and rarely ends up at the destination you thought you were heading. It has always seemed a shame to us that fans only got to see the final destination and not the journey, so now with The Secret List we want to bring you on that journey.
But that’s just the beginning. We also have a huge archive of videos and photos and artwork and posters going back over 25 years. Each month we’ll delve into the archive and show you things we’ve never shown anyone before.

We’ll also have regular competitions, the chance to buy exclusive merchandise, Online listening & viewing parties, QJAM signing sessions, quizzes, Q&A’s, exclusive instrumental tutorials… Oh and if you’re a member at Christmas, we’ll even send you a Christmas card signed by the whole band.

Not only that but as a member of The Secret List you will be the very first to hear official Embrace releases, you’ll get to hear about new albums and tours before anyone else, and you’ll receive a monthly digital newsletter with photos and blogs from the band. Oh and yes there will be Secret Gigs. We know we haven't done one for a while, but trust us as soon as lockdown ends it's coming. Maybe even before!?!

In an age where just about everything pops up as soon as you search Google, we wanted to create something special, something secret, something you just can't get anywhere else. And we wanted to release it in a more direct way that goes straight from the band directly to our biggest and best fans, cutting out the billionaire tech giants.

Trust us we're going to have a lot of fun with this. If you're a fan of the band we hope you'll enjoy it and get other people to join, and please if you have any suggestions or ideas for things you'd like to see on here or things you'd like us to do, just let us know.

Thanks again for your support, it’s massively appreciated and never taken for granted.
