We weren’t quite ready for this this morning, but Our Hollow, Our Home have left us reaching for the tissues with their stunning new video.
For the single Parting Gift, taken from their second album In Moment // In Memory, released last year, Our Hollow, Our Home will be donating all proceeds from the single to Macmillan Cancer Support. The release of the video has been timed to tie in with the annual Macmillan Coffee Morning event, taking place in homes, shops and businesses up and down the country today (27th September). We invite you to check out the video below:
To explain why this track is so important to the band, and their fans, here’s OHOH’s Toby Young.
“Parting Gift” is probably as far away from a “standard” Our Hollow, Our Home song as it could get, but I’d also argue it’s probably one of the most important songs we have ever written. Since releasing our album, “In Moment // In Memory”, the band and I have been enormously touched by the countless messages from our fans all over the world sharing their stories with us, and telling us how they found solace with the record and in particular this song.
This Macmillan Coffee Morning, we release “Parting Gift”. All proceeds from digital sales of the single will go to Macmillan Cancer Support (today and any future sales). Their nurses were incredible to my father and my family in his final few weeks and they do not get anywhere near the support and recognition they deserve. This is our band trying to give a little something back. Every £29 raised can fund a Macmillan nurse for an hour, and that hour will make the world of difference to someone and their family.
I lost my father to cancer, and this has been very difficult to deal with both in my own heart and for my family. Let’s do whatever we can to help find a cure for this devastating disease.”
Our Hollow, Our Home will headline their third “Holloween” event in Southampton on the 26th of October, with Holding Absence, Shvpes and more playing the event. They will then be appearing across the UK and Europe in November as part of the Impericon Never Say Die Tour, with In Hearts Wake, King 810 and many others.
