ARISING EMPIRE is proud to announce that Southampton-based metalcore act Our Hollow, Our Home has signed to the label.
“We’re super stoked to join the AE family,” the band says. “We always said that we would love to sign with a label, so long as it was one that understood the ethos of this band, and loved it as much as we and our fans do! It’s safe to say that we felt that was met with ample amounts with Arising Empire.”
Today, the band has shared the video for “Battle X City,” featuring Samantha Bower of Lightwave. Watch it here and here.
Lyrically, the song traverses a constant struggle of trying to make something you believe in succeed, whiles the rest of the world tries to convince you that it’s doomed to fail. The track finds Our Hollow, Our Home adding guest clean vocals for the first time, “which is a refreshing and innovative touch to this riff-heavy, feel good thrill ride of a track,” says singer Connor Hallisey.
Our Hollow, Our Home dropped their third album Burn In The Flood earlier this year.
OH, OH have toured with Asking Alexandria and Blessthefall, and enjoyed high-profile slots at festivals such as Graspop, Nova Rock, Summerblast, and Jera On Air. The band was boosted by a hugely popular cover of Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” back in 2017, which was picked up by BBC Radio One’s Greg James and subsequently topped the iTunes UK rock and metal chart, and racked up over 300,000 plays on YouTube during its first week of release.
For a band that has handled its own operations internally, without the help of major label or industry backing until now, these are impressive stats and a testament to the devotion Our Hollow, Our Home have to their craft. But it’s more than just the numbers. It’s the way in which people and fans have connected with the band. Be it the lyrical content, the staunchly DIY approach, the high-energy live shows, or the down-to-earth attitude, Our Hollow, Our Home are not forced or faked.
