Carving a new path through the remnants of broken ideals. The world stood still and watched as we all shifted priorities, some losing everything while others faced indefinite change. An uncertain future; the end of an era. An idea birthed out of frustration for old flames dying, LOWER HOLLOW cut its teeth behind closed doors for nearly two years. Refining a new sound, shaping a moment in history – a viable source of intensity and energy. A raw wound grinding against the salt mill, viscous and relentless. LOWER HOLLOW sees the light of somewhat darker times with its debut release “Bloom & Expire”, a sledgehammer beating at the heels of fast hardcore, melodic broodiness and heavy lows. “Bloom & Expire” arrives on all streaming platforms on 31st March 2023; followed by nationwide touring in support of its release.
“Bloom and Expire was a way to express what I felt was wrong with my world and life — cathartically projecting much of my negativity and frustration onto paper. The album touches on many themes from the acceptance of our mortality to depression and fractured relationships I believe it is me coming to terms with Life’s fragile and fleeting nature. My only desire is that listeners find some commonality and catharsis in knowing that if they feel anything I’m feeling, they aren’t alone in their anger, frustration, and sadness…I guess the overall message of Bloom and Expire is open to interpretation – As they say, it is what it is.” – Estian Smith / Vocals
