Embrace have left their record label and signed to INDEPENDIENTE, NME.COM can confirm.
The group have parted ways with their former label, Hut, after three studio albums. A singles’ compilation, ‘Fireworks’, will be released via the label on March 25.
However, a new deal with Independiente has now been penned, with the group hoping to release a brand new single later this year. Festival dates are also being planned.
Writing on the group’s official website, www.embrace.co.uk , vocalist Danny McNamara said: “I’ve been waiting to post this message for a couple of weeks now but it wasn’t actually official till yesterday. We’ve just signed a new record deal with Independiente. I met Andy the boss of Independiente just after he came to see us at the Albert Hall, and of all the people who wanted to work with us he was the nicest. He saw us at that mental T in The Park concert we did a couple of years ago and is a massive fan of the band.
“While I’ve been down in London writing songs for the next LP the rest of the band have been building us a studio. It feels like a fresh start for us. I want to take on the whole fucking world again, and this time that includes America. If you’re a fan of the band today is a day to celebrate. “
Andy Macdonald, chairman of Independiente added: “I’ve been a big fan of the band for a long time, so I’m really excited at the prospect of working with [a][/a]. They’re fine songwriters and a great live band, with all the ingredients to make incredible records for the label.”
