After an incredible weekend at this year's Download Festival, it is with regret that we announce the departure of Giorgio Cantarutti from Holding Absence. 

Giorgio has been a part of Holding Absence since the very beginning, and we are very saddened to see him go. We would like to thank him for his service to our band, helping it grow into what it is today and his continued support for the future. We have parted ways amicably, and he will be sorely missed, and will forever remain a part of the Holding Absence family. 

In light of this development and other factors beyond our control, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our scheduled appearance at Portsmouth The Wedgewood Rooms this weekend. We are currently in the process of arranging a replacement Portsmouth show, so please look out for details of that soon. 

We have something very special to share with you in the next few days. Thank you as always for your patience and support.

This Is Holding Absence -
