Embrace

Possibly one of my favorite bands ever. With lyrics that bring up alot of questions and also challenge all the right issues. I hope you all enjoy this album as much as I have for the last few years.

Embrace was a short-lived post-hardcore band from Washington, D.C., which lasted from the summer of 1985 to the spring of 1986 and was influential in the creation of emotive hardcore. The band included 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. The only recording released by the quartet was their self-titled album Embrace.

Following the breakup of Embrace, MacKaye rejoined former Minor Threat drummer Jeff Nelson to form Egg Hunt. Bald moved on to the band Ignition, and drummer Ivor Hanson paired up with Hampton again in 1992 for Manifesto.

During the band's formative years, some fans started referring to their and fellow innovators Rites of Spring's music as emocore, a term vocalist Ian MacKaye publicly disagreed with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbdh0Qm_5A0&feature=related
