Following the announcement of their self-titled debut album, set for release on May 3rd, Cambridgeshire’s own rising stars of rock Hollowstar are set to hit the road for their long-awaited UK album tour. The band have announced a run of seven dates stretching from Bridgwater to Edinburgh, with Welsh rockers Florence Black joining as special guests for the duration. British singer-songwriter Matt Mitchell (Pride, Furyon, Colour of Noise) is also confirmed amongst the supports.
Readers of these pages may well be familiar with Hollowstar’s brand of hard-hitting rock, with the each of the album’s first two singles (“All I Gotta Say” / “Let You Down”) gracing the airwaves of Planet Rock and Radio 2 in recent months. The band has also been featured in Classic Rock’s “Heavy Rotation” and Planet Rock’s “Ones to Watch”, garnering massive acclaim in the process and even reaching the top five in the “Best New Band” category at this year’s Planet Rock awards (2019).
The debut album tour will see Hollowstar visiting some of their favourite venues throughout the UK, kicking off with the album launch party in London before heading to Florence Black’s home ground in South Wales. A return to Cambridge is of course on the cards for the Hollowstar boys, with the run ultimately coming to a close north of the border in Edinburgh. The energy in the Hollowstar camp has been palpable in the build-up to the tour; the lads more eager than ever to show the world what they’re really capable of.
The eponymous album is available for pre-order now from the band’s official website, with various formats and bundles on offer. The band said of the upcoming tour:
We are excited to bring the full Hollowstar experience out on the road for the first time and we hope to see as many of you as possible across the seven shows. We’ve tried our best to spread these shows across the country to bring this as close to everyone as possible so you can all see the brand new material live and up close!
