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

01.10.17 UK Manchester - Deadbolt Festival
19.10.17 UK London Borderline - Kerrang Fresh Blood Show

EX-HIM Frontman Ville Valo Reveals New Band & Album

Ex-HIM Frontman Ville Valo has announced his return to music with his new band, Ville Valo & Agents, with their debut single, a cover of Rauli Badding Somerjoki's 'Orpolapsi Kiurun'(‘Orphan Child Of The Skylark’) to drop later this month on the 21st September, with an album to follow in 2019.


Ville has teamed up with Esa Pulliainen, guitarist with veteran Finnish band Agents, to record an album of songs inspired by late Finnish rock’n’roll singer Rauli Badding Somerjoki.

“This story begins three years ago,” says Pulliainen, whose band played with Badding in the 80s. “Upon finding three demo cassettes in my drawer which had been sent to me by Badding back in the day, I knew I had to contact Ville right from the get-go. I was aware he knows his Badding inside out. I'm really happy that we were able to finalize this project. Badding meant for these songs to be recorded and even if it took us 30 years to make that happen, I feel I've kept my promise."
