line-up change, auditions, and show announcement
LONG TIME, NO UPDATES...
Hello, HollowBOYS & GIRLS! Thanks to everyone for supporting us the past 3 years(!) through our hectic times on tour and during the lulls in between shows. We've been keeping quiet on the interwebs, but things have been stirring behind-the-scenes and we have some news to announce.
SO, YOU THINK YOU CAN SING?
Earlier this year, our good friend Jesse Walters decided to step away from the band to spend more time with his lovely family. We wish him all the best and hope to keep him involved in our own little family somehow. As a result, Hollowboy is currently accepting auditions from both lords and ladies for a new lead singer here: firstname.lastname@example.org
. Get in touch with us and show us what you can do!
RETURNING TO THE STAGE!
While writing and auditioning is happening off-stage, we couldn't resist the urge to get back to being on-stage. In order for this to happen, guitarist Brent Shiley is stepping up for this show to sing! Come out and show him some love as he pulls double-duty on Monday, August 16th at Bourbon Street in Baltimore. This is an early, all-ages show sponsored by 98Rock that also features aFREUDIANSLIP, Super Bob, Almost Kings, and Chainsaw Baby. Hollowboy is on stage at 9pm sharp, so get there early!
MORE UPDATES COMING...
We promise more news around the corner as the tempo picks up again. More songs, more recording, and more shows means more goodies soon for you :)
