HOLY HOLY have announced their debut UK album release, “When The Storms Would Come”, and tour dates in the UK and Europe to celebrate that release. The album follows the release of “The Pacific EP”, which The Sunday Times called “Brilliant”, and garnered an impressive 8/10 from the NME.
The year of 2014 was a big one for HOLY HOLY; The band, initially comprising of songwriter Timothy Carroll and composer and guitarist Oscar Dawson, was joined by permanent drummer Ryan Strathie, touring bassist Graham Ritchie, and their producer and keys player Matt Redlich, who has recorded and produced all of HOLY HOLY’s recorded work to date). The band completed two sold-out national headline tours and supported some of Australia’s most loved acts (including Boy and Bear and The Preatures), playing some of the countries finest venues (including the Sydney Opera House) clocking up over 60 shows in six-months.
HOLY HOLY’s first trip to the UK in May 2015 was received to critical acclaim, culminating in a sold out London show at the Old Blue Last, a queue down the street for the Great Escape show and being named one of the Top 6 acts at The Great Escape by Artrocker, and rammed shows at Primavera, Dot To Dot and London Calling in Amsterdam.
The album ‘When The Storms Would Come’ was recorded on 2-inch tape and produced by Matt Redlich. It will be released in the UK on 6th November 2015.
