LOUDER NEWS: Holding Absence release Beyond Belief and announce album

Holding Absence are back with brand new track Beyond Belief and it’s exactly what you wouldn’t expect from the Welsh quartet. Their world; immersed in colour and seemingly way more emotion than ever before. (We didn’t even think it was possible). Beyond Belief harbours an effortlessly 80s vibe, tranquil and powerful. A track that has you bopping along from the outset, they channel their shoegaze influences to put a fresh twist on that classic Holding Absence sound we have grown to love.

Alongside the release of the smashing new single, the band announce their sophomore album The Greatest Mistake Of My Life, due April 16th via Sharptone Records. Talking about the record the band said “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.”

The Greatest Mistake Of Life is available here, and it would be The Greatest Mistake of Your Life if you didn’t check out Beyond Belief whilst you’re at it.
