This past summer, Toronto’s My Hollow hit the road for the Great North Resurgence Tour with London, ON’s Tortured Saint. The tour included a performance at the Loud As Hell Festival in Drumheller, AB along with multiple shows across Ontario and Western Canada.
Today, the band is unveiling their new music video chronicling their journey across the country for the first time ever. The track used for the video is “The Iron Harvest” off My Hollow’s latest EP offering “Fighting The Monsters”.
The band adds:
“The music video for The Iron Harvest is a documentation of The Great North Resurgence Tour, in which we travelled across Canada to play our slot at Loud As Hell X, an annual festival showcasing many of western Canada’s premier underground and signed acts. We hit the road with our good friends in Tortured Saint, who were also playing at the festival. The video contains performance and candid footage from our travels, which included van breakdowns, synchronized head-banging breakdowns and random encounters with some wonderful people along the way. This was our first real tour and was the furthest distance we have travelled to perform to date. This is a very special and humbling video for us, as we have been a band for so long now and this is a culmination of many years of hard work. A lot of behind-the-scenes footwork went into leading up to this moment and time, and serves as a tangible reminder of what can be accomplished with a good team and a positive attitude.”
My Hollow’s latest EP “Fighting The Monsters” was released this past April. The EP features guest vocals from Bjorn ‘Speed’ Strid (Soilwork). The band supported its release with the very much loved puppet video “Vultures” and a cartoon for its title track. The new record boasts the heaviest music that they have written along with the addition of keyboards to add a new layer of epic melodies.
My Hollow started via the internet many years ago and has had some lineup changes since then. As they have matured, so has the music and they are excited to share their latest version of themselves with the world. The band expects newer fans, as well as established ones, will be able to find tangible qualities to enjoy about the new EP. The new tunes don’t stray too far from their back catalogue, but they do possess more of a mature approach to the songwriting. The addition of keyboardist Matt Williams has also added a new dimension to the My Hollow sound. The band is suitable for fans of modern metal, especially those with a penchant for Fit For An Autopsy, Gojira, and Lamb of God.
