Rising Welsh rockers Holding Absence revealed Yours Truly as official support for their late 2021 ‘Live and In Colour’ UK Tour. The Australian pop punk outfit is joining as special guest for eight dates in total, four in the end of October and four in early November 2021. The tour was originally announced last October as a continuation of their series of European gigs with Wargasm and Static Dress but so far it is not confirmed whether the two bands will also take part in the recently updated UK shows.
Holding Absence are currently preparing the release of their highly anticipated second album The Greatest Mistake of My Life via SharpTone Records. In support of the release the Welsh quartet are going to visit Germany, Austria, France, Netherlands and the Czech Republic before returning to the UK. Their first home ground show is in Cardiff on 28 October, with a final night booked for 6 November at London’s Electric Ballroom.
Formed in 2015, Holding Absence immediately got the attention of the industry with their This Is As One split EP with Loathe from 2018 and debut self-titled record from 2019. Two years, one memorable Download performance and numerous gigs later, the Welsh outfit is ready to drop their second album The Greatest Mistake of My Life on 15 April 2021. Hailed as one of the most promising contemporary UK bands, and SharpTone Records’ secret weapon for the future, Holding Absence spent 2020 building on their reputation and expanding their audience.
Apart from acting as one of the virtual headliners of the 2020 Heavy Music Awards, the band also released three exciting new singles. Back in March the post-hardcore/alternative rock outfit dropped the two standalone tracks ‘Gravity‘ followed immediately by ‘Birdcage‘ in April. Their latest track ‘Beyond Belief‘ came out as first promo single in October 2020 in line with the original album and UK Tour Announcement. Just yesterday Holding Absence confirmed the release date for their second official single and track #4 from the upcoming record for this Friday, 15 January. The song is called ‘Afterlife‘ and is available to pre-save here or set a reminder for the video premiere.

Straight from releasing their debut record Self Care, Yours Truly are gradually becoming a fan and media favourites, and determined to expand their audience in the UK. Backed by none others than Australia’s finest UNFD, the rising outfit has been hailed by the renowned label as the “world’s most striking acts in pop-punk“.
Self Care came out on 18 September 2020 and peaked straight to #19 at Australia’s main Album Chart. With four massive promotional singles released last year, the record also received very favourable reviews from the leading media outlets. Setting the tone for the worldwide praise, Kerrang! gave it 4/5 examining the much needed positivity of record and the rising band, “bursting out of high school and graduating to the trials and tribulations that come with being young and in a band – facing those burgeoning doubts, vanquishing them, and chronicling the process on this debut album“.
