OUR HOLLOW, OUR HOME DROP “DOWNPOUR” VIDEO — WATCH
Our Hollow, Our Home, a prominent metalcore band hailing from Southampton, UK, have made an electrifying return with a new line-up, promising to usher in a new era for the group. Their re-emergence is marked by the release of their first single “Downpour,” a track that retains their signature blend of aggressive, yet melodic soundscapes while showcasing influences from the band’s new members.
The reconfigured ensemble is poised to continue making music.
“I’m really proud to present our latest single, ‘Downpour,’ as this is the first release with the new lineup and it heralds a new chapter and fresh sound for the band. Lyrically, ‘Downpour’ is about life’s shifting dynamics. It speaks not only to my own personal experience with the changes in the band, but I believe it can resonate with anybody. ‘Downpour’ is about overcoming your own fears and anxieties, staying true to yourself, and what is right for you as an individual,” the band’s vocalist Tobias shares.
He continues, “Given everything that has happened, and the amount of change within the band, it was super important for us to bring something new to the table as soon as we could. As soon as we wrote ‘Downpour,’ we knew this was the song to return with straight away. ‘Downpour’ will be released as a stand-alone single, but rest assured, we’ve already been working very hard on our fourth album, which is sounding wild!
“Musically, this is the best the band has ever sounded. Collaborating with the insanely talented Sky Van Hoff (Rammstein/Sleep Token) has been a game-changer. He’s given our sound a modern twist while keeping our original vibe intact which is something we wanted to set out to do from the start. We are so excited for people to hear this new chapter of the band. We hope that those who have been with us for any length of time will still get behind us, and we’re looking forward to seeing some new faces along the way.”
The level of relatability, coupled with their relentless touring with the likes of Asking Alexandria and Blessthefall and high profile slots at festivals like Graspop, Nova Rock, Summerblast and Jera On Air, has seen the band command an ever growing army of highly dedicated followers; they have over 9 million views on YouTube. 2017’s debut album Hartsick reached the top spot of the Itunes chart for rock and metal in the UK, as well as placing in the top ten in the USA, Canada, Australia, Mexico, Italy, and Germany.
They were also boosted by their hugely popular cover of Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” in 2017, which was picked up by BBC Radio One’s Greg James and subsequently topped the iTunes UK rock and metal chart, and racked up over 300,000 plays on YouTube on its first week of release.
