Cardiff newcomers Holding Absence have announced four new UK shows for November supporting Our Last Night, which follows their just wrapped string of shows supporting Young Guns and shows that the band have no intentions of slowing down anytime soon.
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!”
Additionally, the band have also released a new single, “Heaven Knows”, along with the accompanying music video.
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
