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
