Top band Embrace are heading back to their native West Yorkshire for a second appearance this month.

Days after playing a surprise zombie-themed gig at The Picturedrome in Holmfirth, the band are to meet their fans in a special session.

 

Embrace, who this year have returned after a seven-year hiatus, will be visiting the Hyde Park Picture House on Wednesday, Leeds, on April 16, to discuss their latest album and share exclusive video footage taken during its recording.

This will be followed by an open Q&A session , where fans will be able to put questions to all five band members.

The West Yorkshire band, who enjoyed three number one albums, six top ten singles and over 2.5 million UK album sales, decided to part ways in 2007 to allow band members to focus on individual projects.

But after a seven year break, they’ve now produced their sixth studio album; self-titled Embrace, which is due to be released on April 8. It will be followed by a sell-out national tour throughout May.

Next week’s event has been billed as The Magnetic Sessions and consists of 50 minutes of exclusive footage of the band performing their new album in full during the recording sessions, with the addition of an exclusive non-album track and three bonus acoustic tracks.

Embrace are brothers singer Danny McNamara and guitarist Richard McNamara, bassist Steve Firth, keyboardist Mickey Dale and drummer Mike Heaton.

The band recorded the new record in their own studio in Halifax over the last three years.

Last weekend hundreds of specially-invited fans saw the band perform a 90-minute set at the Picturedrome. Fans travelled from around the world to enjoy the secret gig.

Embrace: The Magnetic Sessions will be at the Hyde Park Picture House on April 16 at 9pm. Tickets are priced between £6.50 - £8.50.
