Biography

Between rock and post-hardcore, Holding Sand has been growing up pretty fast since 2007. Their music can be defined as a mix of powerful riffs and catchy melodies, carried by their unwavering energy and a massive sound.

After they released their first EP “Ebb & Flow” (2009) greeted by the critics, and went on a promising national tour of more than 30 dates, Holding Sand put out their new 5-tracks “On Sleepless Nights” in 2010. It was recorded by David Potvin (One-Way Mirror, Lyzanxia, Sexypop…). Darker and heavier than what they sounded like in the past, the band is catching the attention of an ever-growing and anthusiastic audience.

The quintet took things up a notch when they unveiled the music video for the song “On Sleepless Nights” (directed by Benjamin Cappelletti : My Own Private Alaska, Sidilarsen…) and the single “The Future Belongs to Heartless Whores” directed by their singer Clément Horvath.

They quickly put a 25-minutes long documentary about the band online, called “Holding Sand : Inside”, and launched on february 2011 a 6-episodes web-serie about their lives on tour called “The Holding Sand Chronicles”, before hitting the studio again in april.

After the success of their two first EP’s, the band released their first album “Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid” in january 2012 through M&O Music. It is available for digital download and on shelves in european, american and japanese stores.

The music videos for the singles “Bound To Go Wrong” and “Float” helped the band promote their new delivery and got them back on the road for a new national french tour in spring 2012.
