Holy Holy - When the Storms Would Come Tour

 

One month out from their anticipated debut album release, nostalgic Aussie indie rockers, Holy Holy have today announced an extensive national When The Storms Would Come album tour set for August/September. Kick starting at the Darwin Festival on August 13, the tour will then venture on to BunburyPerthFremantleGold CoastBrisbaneLauncestonHobartAdelaideGeelongBallarat CentralMelbourneWollongongNewcastleCanberra and finishing up in Sydney on September 19.

“We've played a lot of shows in the last two years and have played with some of our favourite bands and in some incredible venues along the way,” explains lead vocalist Tim Carroll. “During that time we have come up with a sound that represents us, a sound we're proud of and a style of music that we love to play. With our debut record now complete and having just played a run of shows overseas, our homecoming album release tour is something we're really looking forward to.”

Having only recently returned from their first tour of Europe and the UK after wowing audiences at iconic festivals The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Dot To Dot, London Calling and Primavera, Holy Holy are excited to return for headline shows later in the year to promote their European album release. “We hit the autobahns and motorways with our sat nav and splitter van and had an awesome time playing soo many amazing festivals,” guitarist Oscar Dawson enthuses. “The highlight was hitting Barcelona at the end of the tour where we played Primavera Sound. Playing to a Spanish crowd, looking out across the Mediterranean as the sun went down, what an experience, we can’t wait to get back there!”

With classic songs, huge supports, extensive radio play, an overwhelmingly positive response from press and blogs both here and overseas, sold-out headline shows and international gigs under their belts, Holy Holy have already achieved so much. And now their debut full-length album is finally here and it is vaster and wilder than anything they’ve released to date. Recorded in Brisbane with Matt Redlich (Emma Louise, Ball Park Music, The Trouble With Templeton), the album unveils the band pushing in to new sonic territory with daring & classic guitars, driving rhythms and even bigger vocals.

Holy Holy is fronted by the songwriting team, vocalist/composer Timothy Carroll and guitarist/composer Oscar Dawson. They are joined on the road by permanent drummer Ryan Strathie (Hungry Kids Of Hungary, Andy Bull), touring bassist Graham Ritchie (Airling, Emma Louise), and Brisbane-based producer Matt Redlich as their touring keys player. Joining them for a large part of the tour will be Melbourne band, Fractures. Other supports include Methyl Ethel and Violet Swells, with more to be announced.

Holy Holy have also just released a new range of merch including signed CDs, t-shirts and vinyl all available for pre-order from www.holyholymusic.com.

Tickets to the national ‘When The Storms Would Come’ album tour are on sale now.
