Sacramento, California's EMBRACE THE END have returned with their sophomore album, "Ley Lines", which was produced by Zach Ohren (AS BLOOD RUNS BLACK, ARSONISTS GET ALL THE GIRLS) with artwork courtesy of Paul Romano (MASTODON, TRIVIUM). Once
"Ley Lines" is set for an April 15 release and the entire album can now be streamed at the band's new e-card.
With a sound inspired by both metal and hardcore alike, EMBRACE THE END proves to be uncompromising in aggression and unmatched in their sound. Using a deft fusion of scathing blast beats amid a torrent of seismic breakdowns their musicianship is supreme and devastating.
The group will join up with HEAVEN SHALL BURN and THE GHOST INSIDE for a nationwide trek this month, which will lead them immediately into a run with ANIMOSITY, FIRST BLOOD and FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS. More...

Century Media has announced this press release:
EMBRACE THE END have returned with their sophomore album, "Ley Lines", which was produced by the acclaimed Zach Ohren (AS BLOOD RUNS BLACK, ARSONISTS GET ALL THE GIRLS) with artwork courtesy of Paul Romano (MASTODON, TRIVIUM). Once subjected to the apocalyptic abandon these Sacramento natives churn forth, it's clear they're going to be annihilating the audience and their contemporaries alike. "Ley Lines" is set for an April 15 release and the vicious new track "Denim On Denim Hate Crime" can now be streamed at the band's MySpace page and the page now features a new theme reflecting the album's cover art.
With a sound inspired by both metal and hardcore alike, EMBRACE THE END proves to be uncompromising in aggression and unmatched in their sound. Using a deft fusion of scathing blast beats amid a torrent of seismic breakdowns their musicianship is supreme and devastating. The group will join up with HEAVEN SHALL BURN and THE GHOST INSIDE for a nationwide trek this April, which will lead them immediately into a run with ANIMOSITY, FIRST BLOOD and FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS. Feel free to visit their MySpace page for their complete touring schedule.
Jesse Alford (vocals) states: "We are absolutely thrilled that this record is coming out on Century Media. The CM family has had out back for a few years now and after working our asses off by making the most boss album imaginable, it feels good. Century Media is a legendary label and we feel privileged to be a part of it. Working with Zach Ohren was the smartest choice we could have made and coupling that with the amazing artwork that Paul Romano created, is a record we can fully stand behind. Expect to see us everywhere in 2008 and we look forward to seeing you all soon."

Embrace The End has spend the last few months regrouping and writing new material. The band will be demoing new songs throughout the summer, with a sophomore release planned for early-2008 through Abacus Recordings.
As previously reported, after losing three members in November, Embrace The End regrouped with a new line-up earlier this year. The new band members include Daniel (ex-Five Victims Four Graves, Paper City skyline) and Spencer (Cyanide Era).
After losing three members in November, Embrace The End has regrouped with a new line-up. Here's an update from the band:
"We are happy to inform all of you who care that we have a solid line-up once more. It's been a couple months with a lot of try-outs and but thankfully we have found a couple guys that fit in perfectly with what we're trying to do. So we'd like to officially welcome Daniel (ex-Five Victims Four Graves, Paper City skyline) and Spencer (Cyanide Era) to the family. We should be playing shows again in a couple months and we are throwing all of our time and hearts into writing a new record. The new guys are amazing so be sure and keep a look out for that, you won't be disappointed. Anyways, thanks always for the support and we'll catch you at the rock show."
California's Embrace The End (Abacus Recordings) has officially confirmed the departure of three members, their vocalist, guitarist, and bassist. All three will play one final show with the group on November 22nd at the Boardwalk in Orangevale, CA. Here's a statement from the band:
"Unfortunately we are losing a few crucial players on team embrace the end. Patrick, Louie and Karl are no longer with us. After touring pretty much nonstop last year, we've spent the summer at home and some of us have decided to move on and pursue other endeavors. If you've seen us live over the last few months you've probably already noticed that our singer Patrick was missing. Patrick quit at the beginning of summer to focus on school and the production of his erotic aquatic spelunking series that should be dropping soon. He will also be following that up with a nationwide publicity tour on a track bike next year. We wish him godspeed and the best of luck. To make matters worse for our band, Louie and Karl have thrown in the towel as well. Louie has been with us since the conception of the band (over six years ago) so it's a big blow and he will be missed. Louie can be found on the block, danglin' fake mc's out of windows. Karl has also been with us for the past 2 years and has been through some silly and heavy shit. It won't be the same without him. Long live GUITARL! The rest of us will continue to work on our new album and are currently and actively seeking a new bassist and guitarist with righteous shreddery. The ideal candidate should have pro gear, be willing to tour, be able to learn by ear, write independent and innovative parts, relocate if necessary, and practice 2 to 3 times a week. Must also rage hard. If interested please be prepared to send video of yourself playing one of our songs. contact email@example.com. serious applicants only. If you don't think you can do it, don't waste our time."
