“"Perish" is the second single off our new album "Holding Absence", and it helps to show a darker, heavier side of our universe. The album contains lots of different depths and directions, and we feel like the contrast between "Like a Shadow" and "Perish" helps to perfectly sum up the forthcoming album”, says vocalist Lucas Woodland.

Vocalist Lucas Woodland had the following to say about the bands newly announced full length: “After what feels like the longest time, we are incredibly happy to announce our debut self-titled album, "Holding Absence". Lyrically and musically, we have pushed ourselves so hard to have an album that we fully feel represents this band in the best way possible. We’re so proud of this release, and cant wait for you guys to hear it”.
