Hollowstar are the kind of band that exude so much shimmering potential that you’re reassured the future of rock music could well be in safe hands.Citing Thunder, Slash and Black Stone Cherry as among their biggest inspirations, the band’s highly-honed music and Joe’s impressive pipes are entrenched in classic rock, yet, rather than just idly regurgitating their influences, crucially Hollowstar’s sounds are fresh and engrained with their own personality. Formed just three years ago in the market town of St Ives, Cambridgeshire, Hollowstar spent their early years relentlessly touring, perfecting their hard-edged rock sound and winning over fans in the process.
Almost exactly a year ago, they unleashed their debut EP ‘Some Things Matter’ to the world and it was duly showered with plaudits from the press and peaked at no.13 on the iTunes rock chart. Flaunting their diverse musical talents, the six-track EP boasted tunes like the slow-building and atmospheric ‘Feel The Burn’ and the riff-heavy rock stomper ‘Holding It Together’, and it paved the way to support slots with Stone Broken, Toseland and more. Building upon these embryonic talents, May 2018 they returned to the fold with the towering anthem ‘All I Gotta Say’. Ticking all the boxes receiving BBC Radio 2 airplay and playlisted by Planet Rock.
With their career on an upward trajectory, summer of 2018 sees them play a series of headline dates, festivals and four coveted support slots with Graham Bonnet Band before opening for Dan Reed Network on their Planet Rock presents November 2018 tour. Rock is once again rightfully on the rise, and Hollowstar look set to lead the charge with riffs fit to grace arenas one day and a truly entertaining live show to match.
