Hollowstar announce the release of their debut album ‘Hollowstar’ on 3 May 2019.
With the band confirming appearances at both the Giants of Rock and Winter’s End festivals, 2019 sees them moving up a gear as they build on the success of last year.
The band have picked up plays on BBC Radio 2’s Rock Show with the first single from the album ‘All I Gotta Say’, which was also playlisted by Planet Rock, as was the second single, ‘Let You Down’. Classic Rock hailed that track as, “Muscular modern hard rock… all bold chunky production, riffs the size of monster trucks”.
The band recently completed a national tour support for Dan Reed Network.
‘Hollowstar’ is available from the band’s website www.hollowstar.uk, with various formats and bundles on offer.
The band said, “We’ve drawn on our own experiences, and what we’ve learned on the road with people like Graham Bonnet Band, Stone Broken and more and created something that is unique. We’re proud of the album and can’t wait to play this music to even more music fans in 2019”.
The Hollowstar sound is driven by vocalist and bassist Joe Bonson, his brother Jack on drums, and the dual lead guitarists Phil Haines and Tom Collett. Hollowstar’s lyrics that are equal parts catchy and meaningful, creating powerful and memorable sings that reflect the band’s classic rock influences whilst showcasing a distinct modern flair. Citing Thunder, Slash and Black Stone Cherry among their biggest inspirations, the band’s highly honed music and Joe’s impressive pipes are entrenched in classic rock, yet rather than just idly regurgitating their influences, the Hollowstar sound is decidedly fresh and ingrained with their own personality.
