Holding Absence and Void of Vision’s Grassroots Tour Rocks Liverpool Academy 2 [Photos]

Holding Absence and Void of Vision returned to grassroots venues. Check out Maryleen Photography’s gallery from the Liverpool show here.



Following an extensive run across North America supporting Silverstein and The Amity Affliction, Welsh rock outfit Holding Absence revealed they were going to hit the road in the UK for a tour of some more intimate venues.

The tour, dubbed “Live & In Monochrome,” would see the band revisiting towns and venues they’ve not played for a few years and showcase a host of rarely performed songs, some of which have never been played live before. Joining the band on tour was the Australian metalcore outfit Void of Vision.

Speaking ahead of the dates, frontman Lucas Woodland comments:

“Our bands roots were initially planted by playing in grassroots venues far and wide across the UK, and as we reach the end of our TGMOML cycle, we thought now was a better time than ever to go back to some of those venues, towns and cities!”

The band promised a set that would feature older songs from the set ahead of the Welsh outfit hitting the studio to work on their next album. This past weekend, the tour arrived in Liverpool and here’s the set list and awesome photo gallery from the show.
