EMBRACE RELEASE LIMITED EDITION OF OUT OF NOTHING AS ALBUM HITS PLATINUM STATUS
In one of year’s most spectacular comebacks, Embrace are set to match sales of their debut album, The Good Will Out, as their latest album Out Of Nothing reaches platinum status just two months after it’s release. Out Of Nothing is now the band’s biggest seller since The Good Will Out was released in 1998.
A special limited edition of their No. 1 album will be made available from Nov 15th, coinciding with the release of their new single, Ashes. The two-disc set includes the album and a bonus DVD featuring over 20 minutes of secret gig footage filmed in the weeks following the band’s triumphant return to the No. 1 slot. Exclusive footage of the band’s UK secret gig tour encompassing London, Leeds, Liverpool, Birmingham and Newcastle is included along with interviews with the band and excerpts from their performances.
This, in addition to their secret gig in Majorca, performed at dusk on the sea front, to which Embrace flew out eight die hard fans. The new format contains a secret code with which fans can enter a competition gaining access to the series of secret Xmas gigs, planned for December.
Further details of these will be made available via the band’s website in the coming weeks. The documentary will be available as a free download via www.embrace.co.uk on Xmas day, for those who don’t wish to purchase the limited edition album.
Embrace will be signing copies of their latest single Ashes (also out 15th November) and the limited edition version of Out of Nothing at a select number of record stores this month.
