Win tickets to see Embrace

Just days before the 2004 V Festival, the Embrace boys had been working day jobs and reliving past glories from the late nineties, from the time before the two year slump that many people thought would be the end of their career.

But then came the call. Thanks to an unfortunate set of circumstances involving a bereavement in the family of a member of Australian rockers Jet, a set at the festival suddenly became available, and Embrace were called on to entertain the 40,0000 gathered music fans.

And entertain they did. My eyes were bleary and my memory of the day is somewhat hazy for a number of reasons, but I can remember the humble passion that make Embrace so beloved to so many people. They played their little hearts out, bless them, and won back the public with some nineties classics and some new material from their comeback album Out of Nothing.

Since then, and with a little help from old pal Chris Martin, Embrace have gone from strength to strength with two number one albums, the latest being the aptly titled This New Day which was released earlier this year.
