Holding Absence To Release New Album “The Greatest Mistake Of My Life” In April, Debut “Beyond Belief” Video


Holding Absence have announced that their new album “The Greatest Mistake Of My Life” will meet an April 16th release on SharpTone Records. The first single, “Beyond Belief“, has officially debuted alongside the news, while pre-orders for the record are available here. Frontman Lucas Woodland commented of this first taste of the record:

“We are ecstatic to finally unveil ‘Beyond Belief‘ to the world! Just as jumping from black and white into colour is a huge change for our band, we believe the transition into ‘Beyond Belief‘, and subsequently ‘The Greatest Mistake Of My Life‘, is similarly significant.

Beyond Belief‘ sees our band embracing the 80’s indie-shoegaze era with both arms, while still gripping firmly onto all the sounds that have made us who we are up until now. A song about love, and the fear of permanence – this really is Holding Absence, like you’ve never heard us before.”

Speaking of the album itself, the band stated:

“This album is about telling stories that are presented through the lens of hindsight, regret and looking back. There are songs that celebrate life when faced with death, and others that speak to the choices we make about how we live our lives. The fear of love, newfound respect for life and the covering up of depression are all subjects that rear their head.

The Greatest Mistake Of My Life‘ exercises emotion in many ways, and that was an important thing for us to do, because emotion isn’t rigid – it’s not just love or joy or sadness – it’s a lot of things.”
