Welsh wonders Holding Absence have revealed their third album will be released this summer.
‘The Noble Art of Self Destruction’ is the quartet’s third album and will be released Sharptone on August 25th. The album was recorded at Canada’s Jukasa Studios with producer Dan Weller (Enter Shikari, Bury Tomorrow).
On announcing the album, Holding Absence have stated ‘…Self Destruction is the final part of a trilogy, and is there “most conceptually rich and expansive body of work to date”
“We feel like these songs are almost a love letter to everything Holding Absence, and can’t wait to show everybody just how much space we have managed to cover, and how hard we were able to push ourselves with these songs,” stated Holding Absence

To coincide with the news of the album, Holding Absence have released its second track. ‘Face Dawn’ captures all that is great about Holding Absence; big hooks, bold production, and introspective lyricism.
It’s a notion the band agree with, describing it as “a quintessential Holding Absence song”. The Cardiff-based go on to say; “This is definitely a personal favourite for all of us on the record! A somewhat defeatist song about denouncing expectations, and coming to grips with failure.”
