Our Hollow, Our Home To Call It Quits Following A Farewell Show


Our Hollow, Our Home have come to an end. Guitarist Tobias Young of the British metalcore outfit issued the below statement on the band’s social media this week regarding the band’s dissolution:

“Our Hollow, Our Home // 2013 – 2024

To my dear #teamohoh, it is with a heavy heart that I must let you know that we have reached the end of this wonderful road.

I have chosen to put my personal statement here, as the last member of this band and as one of its founding member. But mainly because it’s difficult to convey 10 plus years without some personal context.

Like every member who has ever been a part of it, I have given everything I have to Our Hollow, Our Home. For me, that’s 10+ years. Through all the trials and tribulations, the blood sweat and many, many tears, somehow we made it this far, notably down to your love and support.

But life changes. Early this year, in February, my mother went in for a routine checkup but ended up in the hospital for the best part of four months, fighting for her life. She is now in a position where she needs me and my partner to help look after her.

Throughout this, my band mates were incredible at helping me through what’s been a really difficult year—probably the worst since I lost my dad, if I’m honest. I am self-aware enough to know it’s made me difficult to be around at times, what should have been exciting and feel-good moments for us were affected by my negative spiralling headspace. I take ownership of that, and to Kieran, James, Gaz, and Matt, I am sorry you’ve had to deal with a side of me that I am not proud to have shown. I know I’m not always an easy person to work with, espeically in the creative sense, but sometimes you care so much that it’s really difficult to let someone else take the wheel, even when you probably should. A life lesson learned.

What we have created together, has become Our Hollow, Our Home‘s fourth and final album. A record I am so proud to have been a part of. A record that wouldn’t have been possible without your support. I hope you still choose to listen to it. I think it’s some of the band’s best work, and I’m immensely proud of everyone for putting it together.

It goes without saying that this was probably the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make in my life, but I feel now is the right time for change. There is a level of guilt that is almost impossible to shake, feeling like you’re letting your bandmates, your team, and your fans down. I guess you never really know if you’re making the right decision until you make it, but this is something I need right now, and honestly, I am at peace with it.

To every member I’ve shared the stage with in this band, both past and present, I can’t thank you enough. Honestly, you all played a huge part in this journey.

To Mike, Maarten, Mar, James, Robin, Tobbe, Mark, Emma, Sky, Ollie, Dan, Anthony, and the countless others who have stood by this band, thank you.

Holloween Returns” will go ahead as planned. Our Hollow, Our Home will be there, in one shape or form, to play and sing some of these songs together one last time. How we do that right now i dont know, but i am working on it.

All remaining merch is on sale to be cleared here:

I’ve lived my dreams, and I owe that all to you. To say that you, the fans, have kept me and this band going these past few years would be a huge understatement. You mean the world to me.

Thank you for giving me memories I’ll never, ever forget.

All my love,

As it stands, the band’s career will come to an end following their November 02nd ‘Holloween‘ show at The Loft in their hometown of Southampton, UK.
