Embrace was a short-lived post-hardcore band from Washington, D.C., often cited as pioneering theemotionally charged hardcore punk (emo) movement, from the summer of 1985 to the spring of 1986.The group was primarily noteworthy because of its well-known members, joining Ian MacKaye of MinorThreat and The Teen Idles with guitarist Michael Hampton, drummer Ivor Hanson, and bassist ChrisBald, all former members of the pioneering band Faith. Hampton had also played in S.O.A. with HenryGarfield (later known as Henry Rollins). All four members had been involved in popular and influentialbands in the nascent D.C. punk scene since the late 1970s. The only album released by the quartetwas their self-titled album Embrace.
