Landing at the city’s O2 Academy 2 on 28 January 2023, the show comes fresh off the back of an extensive year of worldwide touring for the band, including a recent US run with Silverstein and The Amity Affliction, an Australian tour with Void of Vision and a stretch of EU dates. 

Speaking about the upcoming show, Holding Absence say: 

Our bands roots were initially planted by playing in grassroots venues far and wide across the UK, and as we reach the end of our TGMOML cycle, we thought now was a better time than ever to go back to some of those venues, towns and cities.

After a long 2022 spent touring the world, the “Live & In Monochrome” tour is our way of being able to play some older songs to our oldest fans (or newer fans that missed us back at the start), before making a head-start on LP3. We can’t wait!

Having released their split EP ‘The Lost & The Longing’ with Alpha Wolf back in August, the band have also impressed audiences with relentless sets at Download and 2000 Trees festivals and a performance at the Heavy Music Awards 2022, where they were nominated in three categories.

After initially forming in 2015, Holding Absence have released two studio albums and two EPs and toured non-stop around the globe. Signing to SharpTone Records in 2017, the band released their self-titled debut album in 2019, receiving praise from the likes of Kerrang!, Dead Press and Loudwire, with the latter naming it one of the 50 best rock albums of the year.

Spending the next year playing support slots with the likes of Being As An Ocean, Counterparts and Sleeping With Sirens, as well as playing some of their biggest UK headline shows to date, the band released their second LP ‘The Greatest Mistake of My Life’ in 2021. Dubbed the fifth best rock/metal album of 2021 in Kerrang!’s yearly round-up, the album saw Holding Absence praised as “taking a cue from My Chemical Romance but adding in some extra grit and real-world drama” by Loudwire.

Hitting the road again in 2023 with new music in tow, shake off the January blues with the band’s deafening live set in Liverpool in the new year.
