HOLDING ABSENCE Announce More UK Tour Dates + Release Music Video For 'Heaven Knows'





HOLDING ABSENCE Add More UK Dates & Reveal New Music Video For 'Heaven Knows'



Cardiff ascending newcomers HOLDING ABSENCE are very pleased to announce four new UK shows for November supporting OUR LAST NIGHT. The melodic post-hardcore five piece have just wrapped up a number of successful UK shows supporting YOUNG GUNS and show no signs of slowing down there.

Vocalist Lucas Woodland comments: "After a very successful run with our new friends in Young Guns, we're ecstatic to announce that we'll be returning to Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester & London this November, live and in colour, as support to Our Last Night. We hope to see you at a show!"

In addition to these new dates, the band have also released an impressive video for new single, 'Heaven Knows'. Watch it here: https://youtu.be/jPIe2Afur00





The narrative of Heaven Knows reads a suicide note - A depressed person musing over their life and the lasting impressions they would like to leave on the world and the people they met in their lives.
"I'm still alive in all I've touched. To every one I've ever loved - Don't look at me with regret."
Referencing several of our other songs, this feels like a final conclusion for the narrator. The ending crescendoing of Heaven Knows poses the statement, as you jump into the abyss, "Heaven knows if there's a Heaven at all”. - Lucas Woodland

Full tour dates as follows:
01.10.17 UK Manchester - Deadbolt Festival
19.10.17 UK London Borderline - Kerrang Fresh Blood Show

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)


Cellar Darling is comprised of Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi, and Merlin Sutter who recently formed following the spilt from previous well-known folk metal band, Eluveitie. The trio have been hard at work since, creating their anticipated debut album 'This Is The Sound' which was released June 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and have impressed fans and press alike with their fresh and unique sound which has been dubbed as "the new wave of folk rock“. This is an exciting and busy time for the band, so I caught up with them to find out about their origins, their new album, touring and what is in store for the band amongst other things..

Spreading The Disease - Voices (Single Review)

'Voices' starts on an effective soft clean vocal intro before the aggressive fierce vocals kick in and features varied vocals throughout keeping it dynamic. The guitar work is hard-hitting especially with ambient and heavy chugging riffs. The delivery and transitions it goes through aided by the vocals add to its frantic vibes which seem appropriate given the nature of the track. This is an intense and killer track which leaves you hungry for the upcoming EP 'Mindcell'.




'Voices' has just been released worldwide through Surgery Records, taken from our forthcoming new EP 'MINDCELL' which is out on April 11th 2019.
