Wilkes-Barre melodic hardcore band One Step Closer return with the announcement of their new full-length, All You Embrace, alongside the single, "Leap Years".

All You Embrace follows 2021's This Place You Know and 2023's Songs For The Willow. Speaking of the forthcoming release, vocalist Ryan Savitski explains: “I wanted to showcase One Step Closer in its fullest state. Every single part of the band, I wanted it to be there. I wanted us to be 100% ourselves and be as authentic to our band as we could possibly be.”

With founding members Savitski and guitarist Ross Thompson at the helm of One Step Closer, alongside newest addition Colman O’Brien, the three were able to fearlessly guide the album in new directions. “There was never a conversation about us trying to sound more emo or sound more hardcore, it was just us doing what we were feeling and fully committing to that,” says Thompson.

The leaps made in the music reflect the lyrical themes that Savitski dug into throughout All You Embrace. “I don’t feel like a kid anymore, he says. “There’s been so much change since the last record—losing members, losing relationships, losing friends, touring a lot, seeing your friends and family less—and this record captures all the changes in our lives since then.”

“We’ve lost things, but we’ve given and we’ve gained things, and it’s capturing all of those emotions into a set of songs. With change, you have to either embrace it or deal with it, but all the change for us was for the right reasons," he adds.
