Holding Absence Releases New Song “Her Wings” from New Album “The Noble Art Of Self Destruction”
British rock band Holding Absence, consisting of Lucas Woodland (vocals/keyboard), Ashley Green (drums), Scott Carey (guitar) and Benjamin Elliott (bass), released their third studio album “The Noble Art Of Self Destruction” on August 25, 2023 via SharpTone Records.
The album is the third in a trilogy, following the 2019 album “Holding Absence” and the 2021 album “The Greatest Mistake of My Life”.
The album comprises 10-track, produced by Dan Weller.
The band said, “Today, we are absolutely ecstatic to unveil our new album - the third in a trilogy - 'The Noble Art Of Self Destruction'. We set out to write an all killer, no filler album, that was equal parts conceptual as it was personal, and we're so proud of the results. We hope these songs get stuck in your head just as much as the lyrics can connect with you!”
From the album, the band released a new song “Her Wings” along with a music video.
The track received its first play during BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with with Jack Saunders.
THey said of the song, “We're so excited to show you today, our brand new single 'Her Wings'. This song is close to all of our hearts – a far more Emo song than we've ever written before – “Her Wings” is a love-letter to death. Holding Absence, at our darkest.”
The band explained about some track for the album,
“A Crooked Melody”
“[It's] simply a song about denial. It's the lie we tell ourselves every night to help us sleep, but deep down we know the truth. The big difference between a crooked melody and a lie, however, is that it's sweet, enchanting and easier to swallow.”
“This song is definitely a personal favourite for all of us on the record. A somewhat defeatist song about denouncing expectations, and coming to grips with failure.”
“This song is a love letter to our favourite genre, post-hardcore - it's heavy, catchy and emotional. We can't wait for you guys to hear this one, as we step ever-closer to releasing the whole album next month. The track depicts the concept of sacrifice as a means to evolve, as the narrator commits to severing parts of themselves in order to grow.”
“'Honey Moon' is perhaps Holding Absence's most beautiful song to date! A track inspired by the Pixies and Deftones - this is a lovesick poem that looks to the stars to portray a deep, isolated yearning for the love of another.”
