MUSIC NEWS: Holding Absence & Alpha Wolf Announce Split EP ‘The Lost & The Longing’
Holding Absence and Alpha Wolf have announced a split EP – The Lost & The Longing will be released on 15th August 2022 via SharpTone Records (ROW) and Greyscale Records (Australia and New Zealand). The EP includes four new tracks, two of which feature collaborations between both bands.
“We’re ecstatic to be announcing The Lost and The Longing, our split EP with Alpha Wolf! They are a band we’ve loved as people and musicians for years now, and we’re so grateful they wanted to drop this release with us,” says Holding Absence‘s Lucas Woodland.
“We can’t wait for people to hear our two new singles Aching Longing and Coffin, too! Aching Longing is our band at its heaviest yet, and Coffin is on the complete opposite side of the spectrum… We are always trying to stretch our band into new shapes, and can’t wait for people to hear what we’ve produced with these two tracks!”
“We first met Holding Absence back in 2019 at the Impericon fests in Europe and we got along like a house on fire,” adds Alpha Wolf‘s Sabian Lynch. “We really enjoy their super catchy tunes and luckily enough they enjoy our heavy tunes. We talked a bunch over social media and kept up to date with what they were doing and when Lucas (jokingly) mentioned that we should do a split, it surprisingly just seemed like the best idea ever. We both released albums around the same time and it made sense timing wise for us both to release new music at the same time Working with them has been a breeze and we’d do it again in a heartbeat.”
In light of the announcement, Holding Absence have released their new single Aching Longing featuring Alpha Wolf.
