Rising Cambridgeshire-based rockers Hollowstar look set to close out the year in spectacular style, following up their recent airtime on Planet Rock and BBC Radio 2 with the release of yet more brand new music and a UK-wide tour supporting the phenomenal Dan Reed Network. The latest single, ‘Let You Down’, will be made available on all digital platforms from today with physical copies also available via the band’s online shop.
The track is described by frontman Joe Bonson as, “a message about going out and grabbing what you want after a period of indecision or hesitation in your life. A rallying call to take to your passions wholeheartedly so as to not let yourself or others down.”
Check it out below:
On the whole ‘Let You Down’ retains much of the signature Hollowstar sound their fans have come to know and love, combining the raw impact of dual lead guitarists Phil Haines and Tom Collett with lyrics that are equal parts catchy and meaningful, creating an end result that reflects the band’s classic rock influences whilst showcasing a distinct modern flair.
The location and format of the accompanying music video perfectly befits the intent behind the track, sticking solely to a live performance set in a studio provided by the amazing Alton Wahlberg Music; a location set up with the pure intent of helping up-and- coming musicians thrive doing what they love.
The release comes just weeks before the band head out for their second major tour this year, which sees them supporting none other than Dan Reed Network alongside Glaswegian rock group Mason Hill. The tour spans throughout November and includes no shortage of appearances throughout England, Scotland and Wales. Beyond that, Hollowstar have also announced a headline show in the run up to the New Year in addition to appearances at Giants of Rock in Minehead and Planet Rock’s Winter’s End Festival.
