Yes, us English chappies have already bought enough of their records to make them double platinum. Their last album, Out of Nothing, has already sold a half-a-million copies and has had two songs in our Top 10. They recently played with Snow Patrol and your critics in the U.S. have fallen all over the band.

The San Francisco Chronicle told everybody to “forget about the Pixies and Morrissey. The biggest comeback story this year is Embrace.” New York’s Village Voice said “songs this majestic are made for arenas.” It goes on and on.

Maybe you should check them out. Embrace will be playing in Seattle, Sacramento, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Atlanta – all kinds of places – on its headline tour next month. Maybe this will tide you by until your country starts making music again.

Just kidding! Swing by for a pint sometime.
