Check out our top picks from the line-up of this very special music event.
Post-hardcore/rock powerhouse Holding Absence are on the brink of greatness. Coming out of their hometown of Cardiff some six short years ago, Holding Absence absolutely stormed their ascent in the alternative music scene, with their atmospheric amalgamation of belting anthemic choruses, battering drums and big guitar riffs on their monochromatic hard-hitting debut. To follow in the footsteps of such a strong self-titled takes some beating, but the band have done it with their sonically, lyrically, thematically and visually stunning second album 'The Greatest Mistake Of My Life'.
With just days away from the release of their sophomore record 'The Greatest Mistake Of My Life', we spoke to Holding Absence frontman Lucas Woodland about their emotional new record, going back on tour and much more.
