HOLDING ABSENCE Release New Album ‘The Greatest Mistake Of My Life’


“Britain’s next breakout band” – Kerrang!

“One of the UK’s most thrilling and thoughtful bands.” – Rock Sound

“A seismic and sentimental shift, and a signal of great success to come.” – Metal Hammer

After teasing a new song from the record daily over the last two weeks, Holding Absence have released their much anticipated second album ‘The Greatest Mistake Of My Life’. 

In the band’s own words “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.”



HOLDING ABSENCE is: Lucas Woodland – Vocals , Scott Carey – Guitar, Benjamin Elliott – Bass and Ashley Green – Drums.
