PIT STOP!

The band play a secret gig for fans in a disused Cornish mine…

Embrace played a secret gig on Saturday night, 300 feet underground at CORNWALL’s CARNGLAZE CAVERNS (December 18).

Over 400 fans turned up at the disused open slate mine near Liskeard to watch the band play a 15-song acoustic set which included the tracks ’Gravity’, ’All You Good Good People’, ’Come Back To What You Know’, ’Fireworks’ and the current single ’Ashes’.

The group encored with versions of three Christmas tunes -’Chestnuts’, ’I Believe In Father Christmas’ and ’Happy Christmas (War Is Over)’.

Embrace also included a cover of Echo And The Bunnymen’s ’Ocean Rain’ in the set in tribute to the band, who shot the cover of their ’Ocean Rain’ album at Carnglaze Caverns.

Carnglaze Caverns was the last of the band’s secret gigs for 2004 – a year that’s included sets in the ‘Big Brother’ house, Newcastle’s Angel Of The North, London’s Hyde Park and Leicester Square, Sefton Park in Liverpool and a special oversees gig in Palma, Majorca.

A new single ’Looking As You Are’ is scheduled for release in February 2005. Embrace will head out on a UK tour in February.
