Following the release of their blistering 8 track, 11 minute debut self titled 12” EP on Hell, Yes! last month, Italian punks upstarts HOLY have confirmed their first ever UK live shows. Also check their suitably cathartic new DIY video for furious EP track ‘Restless’ (above).
Longtime active in the Italian hardcore/punk scene, both organizing and playing shows with different bands, HOLY focused all their thoughts on creating angry, fast music that could talk about political issues and life choices.
Reflecting on a bleak vision of big ideals and how cynical reality can sometimes be.The result is a mix between old-school hardcore, 80’s punk and power-violence.

03/05/12 – London, Black Heart (Camden)
