The Holy's anticipated sophomore album ‘Mono Freedom’ will be released 17th April 2020. Around the release they will play 4 exclusive shows with limited capacity, 360 degree stage setup, special lightning and visuals.
The new album is partly an utopian theme album. Fictional story about mother nature taking over the earth and how the last humans on earth will pack their stuff, build a rocket and head over to the nearest black hole. The record and the lyrical theme is inspired from Alan Weisman’s book The World Without Us, a classic science book that goes through a bunch of scenarios that would happen to mother earth if humans would disappear today.
The quintet has been shaking the ground of the Nordic music scene since the release of their debut EP More Escher And Random Notes in 2016. Mixes of post-punk, Bruce Springsteen and Peter Gabriel with Krautrock influences are often mentioned when speaking about The Holy’s well crafted sound.
Hailing from one of the darkest countries in the world, The Holy are known for their Nordic melancholy, highly explosive live shows and for the unusual band formation that includes two drummers. Lead singer Eetu Henrik Iivari’s tense and timeless voice and the guitar loaded wall of sound often makes you feel comfortably uncomfortable.
Starting out in the small venues of Helsinki, The Holy have travelled a long way performing over one hundred shows - including all the major Finnish festivals; Flow Festival, Ruisrock, Provinssirock, Ilosaarirock, as well as touring across Europe in Sweden, Germany, UK, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Luxembourg, and Austria. They have showcased at Eurosonic 2019, Iceland Airwaves 2019, Reeperbahn Festival, Where Is The Music, JaJaJa London, Berlin & Vienna, and Finland’s own Lost In Music.
The German/French TV channel Arte filmed the band’s performance at Flow Festival 2019 in corporation with Finland’s YLE, and Seattle based KEXP filmed their show at Iceland Airwaves, which will be published on the station’s popular YouTube channel in the near future.
The Holy’s debut album Daughter gathered praise both in Europe and Finland, resulting in an EMMA-nomination (Finnish Grammy) for Critics’ Choice in 2019. The reviews praised the honest songwriting and lyrical themes of the album including topics such as the 1990s Finnish economic recession and its reflection on the youth of its time.
