Embrace was an American alternative rock, post-hardcore and emocore band Embrace from Washington, D.C., that was formed in 1985 and consisted of Ian MacKaye of Minor Threat with three former members of his brother Alec's band The Faith: guitarist Michael Hampton, drummer Ivor Hanson, and bassist Chris Bald. Hampton and Hanson had also previously played together in S.O.A. The only album, Embrace, was released by the band. It included 14 tracks. All of the songs were recorded at Inner Ear Studios and featured the same lineup. And now, you may download this album by Embrace in mp3 from our site.
