Southampton metalcore starlets Our Hollow Our Home have revealed their new album In Moment // In Memory is set for release on October 19 through their own Hollow Music label!
The record is the legacy of an emotional journey of love and loss, with the overriding inspiration being the passing of vocalist/guitarist Tobias Young’s father following an aggressive battle with cancer.
“In January 2017 I started the initial writing process for the second album. This came to a sudden halt when I found out that my father was terminally ill with lung cancer. My focus moved to spending time with him and my family and away from writing until sadly, just 4 short months later, my father passed away.
I was left feeling very lost and very vulnerable and I didn’t know how to deal with these feelings. My father was always a strong driving force for me to keep writing and producing music. With that said, writing this album became my coping mechanism. As I journeyed through the varying stages of grief, with the help of my bandmates, I benchmarked my progress with songs about how I had felt, how I had learnt to deal with the situation and how I had to learn to keep on moving forward in a life without my father.
We really wanted this album to be something our listeners could turn to in a time of need. Just as writing these songs have helped me get through one of the most difficult periods of my life, it was equally as important to that it would be an honest and relatable listen, and we hope that this record will be a companion to anyone taking their own journey.”
