Holding Absence have announced the dates of a UK tour for some smaller venues.

The band will be playing a string of shows in intimate venues up and down the country, in towns and cities that usually get passed by. 

And if that wasn’t enough, they will be supported by Void Of Vision

Vocalist Lucas Woodland had this to say about it:

“Our band’s roots were initially planted by playing in grassroots venues far and wide across the UK, and as we reach the end of our TGMOML cycle, we thought now was a better time than ever to go back to some of those venues, towns and cities!

After a long 2022 of touring the world, the “Live & In Monochrome” tour is our way of being able to play some older songs to our oldest fans (or newer fans that missed us back at the start), before making a head-start on LP3.

We can’t wait!”

Sea Girls Release New Single, ‘Falling Apart’

Off the back of a rapturous summer of festival dates, and looking ahead to their highly anticipated UK headline tour in November/December, indie pop heroes Sea Girls have dropped their exquisite new song Falling Apart’.

Coming as a brand new track, recorded with producer Pete Robertson (Beebadoobee, Alfie Templeman) in just one day, front man Henry Camamile said “I got the idea for ‘Falling Apart’ after watching Jimmy Fallon and seeing Steven Van Zandt playing guitar in Springsteen’s E Street Band. That same day I had watched him in character as Sil in The Sopranos, so the inspiration was to write a song from that character’s mother’s point of view, along with mine, watching him play guitar on the TV and letting the art blend with reality. The emotion radiates loss and revenge in a murky underworld.”

‘The Hometown Tour’ kicks off mid-November with recently added shows due to phenomenal demand, and culminates with a massive show at London’s Alexandra Palace on December 1st. 

Check out the touring dates below.
