With forthcoming single Gravity poised to be a hit and a sold out show at Shepherd's Bush Empire already in the bag, Embrace are now set to make a surprise appearance at this weekend's V Festival.

Embrace will take over the slot vacated by Jet and play second on the bill to Kings Of Leon on the NME stage at both Chelmsford (Saturday) and Stafford (Sunday).

Embrace played the latest of their secret gigs just last Sunday in a Scout hut in Brighouse.
