Griffin Holtby Announces New EP “The Hell Series”, Releases New Song “The Fire”
- Texas-based rock singer-songwriter Griffin Holtby announced his sophomore EP “The Hell Series” will be released early 2021.
From the EP, he unveiled a new song “The Fire” on September 25th.
Griffin Holtby said of the song, “about addiction and love and how those things are intertwined. It's based on a codependent relationship I had at the time, a relationship I had when I was fighting with and trying to push my family away. Teens with abandonment challenges stupidly do that until they realize their parents will always be there for them.”
The EP contains 3-track around themes of maturation. “The Hell Series includes three songs I wrote during a period when I was really struggling,” he explained. “My teen years were rough due to a personal identity crisis I experienced because of my adoption from Russia. At that age, I couldn't understand why I felt so bad about myself, but it was pain stemming from abandonment and attachment issues. All I knew is that I was struggling to know who I was and where I came from and why I felt like I didn't fit in. Many adopted teens go through that. You don't feel connected to anything.”
