Holding Absence vocalist Lucas Woodland commented:


"We're ecstatic to announce that this August, we will be playing one of our most ambitious shows to date, as we headline the mighty Chepstow Castle! We’re a very proud Welsh band, so the opportunity to headline a literal castle just down the road from our hometown was something too exciting to not pursue!


This will be one of the best bills the UK has to offer this Summer, as we’re being joined by Casey, Caskets and Glass Heart for the evening; as well as hand-picked vendors, stalls and charity partners on the day. Don’t miss this, it’ll be a special one!”


HOLDING ABSENCE's highly lauded, latest studio album The Noble Art Of Self Destruction was released last year via SharpTone Records.

From the moment of our first breath to the very last gasp we take before we die, we never stop growing as people. Every trial and tribulation, every heartbreak, success and failure, every scar, blemish and wrinkle is another brushstroke illuminating our life’s unique canvas. As Holding Absence frontman Lucas Woodlandsings on ‘The Angel in the Marble,’ the closing track on his band’s outstanding third album The Noble Art of Self Destruction, we are, each and every one of us, “a puzzle, a painting, a work of art in the making.”



Holding Absence’s latest album is a testament to how our life’s story is never fully told, with opportunities for change and growth found in every moment, from the depths of despair to the euphoria of our greatest loves. Whether adding flourishes of colour to an already picturesque painting, or chiselling away at the marble to reveal the beauty within, The Noble Art of Self Destruction – the final act in a trilogy of records encompassing the first chapter of Holding Absence’s career – speaks to how we are each an unfinished work of art with new meanings and qualities waiting to be discovered.


The Noble Art Of Self Destruction was recorded at Canada’s Jukasa Studios with producer Dan Weller(Enter Shikari, Bury Tomorrow). The record builds further into the lore of Holding Absence that sets them apart from many of their contemporaries. Taking influence from a varied array of sources including Renaissance sculptor Michelangelo, sci-fi blockbuster Star Wars and the Japanese pottery art of Kintsugi, Holding Absence’s new LP speaks to the desire of Lucas and his bandmates to create a project that exists as so much more than just a band.
