Our Hollow Our Home – Burn in the Flood
The new album from Our Hollow Our Home is called Burn in the Flood and will be released on May 28 through //Hollow Music.
“We are beyond proud to announce our third full-length album, ‘Burn In The Flood’.
Whilst there is an overarching theme of being caught or trapped within your own emotions, on this record – rather than delving into a deep constructive narrative – we wanted to focus on letting each song have its own time in the spotlight, and have each tell its own story. Every time we start writing, we push ourselves harder than ever before, and all truly believe this is our strongest collection of songs to date.
The last year has been tough for everyone, but through all the hardships thrown at us, especially as touring musicians, we dug deep and ended up finding some of the rawest, most open & honest material we’ve ever written. This album was made entirely for our fans. They are a huge inspiration to us and this record has been brought to life by our literal blood, sweat and tears during a time where we honestly didn’t know if the world would even allow us to carry on doing what we love so dearly!
It’s a project which documents our personal growth and the genuine struggles faced in our daily lives, and we wear our hearts on our sleeves from beginning to end.”

Bound in Fear – Eternal
Bound in Fear will release new EP Eternal on March 26 through Unique Leader Records.
Vocalist Ben Mason said: “BOUND IN FEAR to me has always been self-explanatory – it’s about things that we go through in life that define us as people. The Eternal EP touches on memories that manifest into nightmares, substance abuse, childhood trauma and everything in between that we don’t talk about because we feel ashamed.
“In our music we always try to give an honest experience to show people that they are not alone, but to also help them understand that being angry, sad, upset and confused is okay – not everyone can see what happens behind closed doors. The things that we experience may be Eternal, but they can also be beaten.”
