We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of St. Louis metalcore quartet Hollow’s new song “Anomaly” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s upcoming full-length album Home Isn’t Where The Heart Is, which is scheduled to be released on June 9th.
Hollow bassist/vocalist John Flynn comments on the album:
“‘Home Is Not Where The Heart Is’ was originally going to be a concept album, and these lyrics were the only ones we kept after we decided against that. It’s all about how bleak the future looks. They describe all of humanity being narrowed down to one big city that’s sucking up the rest of our natural resources. So inside the walls everything looks fine, but the rest of world is just a big desert. It’s very Mad Max and it’s very Matrix.”
Everybody has emotions that they don’t like to talk about; aggression, regret, desperation. Life isn’t cookie-cutter and neither is our music. We are angry, broken people with the mutual understanding that our listeners are probably able to relate to the places in life that have inspired our music. Hollow wants to create an atmosphere with our fan-base that allows them to express those emotions in a positive and constructive light, both with our live performances as well as our personal relationships with our fans. We want to use our music to facilitate community and help each other move forward with what we express in our music. No sugar-coating, no tiptoeing around our problems.
An honest, aggressive approach to music.
