Packed full of storming riffs, with an energetic video to match, Cambridgeshire rockers Hollowstar have just released new single 'Holding It Together'. The track offers up hard hitting riffs mixed with a balls to the wall rock and roll attitude that captures the true spirit of what rock is all about.
Want to know more about 'Holding It Together'? Hollowstar have this to say:
"Holding It Together is the story of the everyday battles that people go through and the front they create to hide behind. Sometimes life's struggles can feel like they're tearing you apart, like your brain is going to explode, but you need to keep it inside. With this track we wanted to let people know that we all feel like that sometimes, and we hope 'Holding It Together' will help the listener to escape that feeling."

Hollowstar formed in early 2015, bringing together the talents of vocalist/bassist Joe Bonson, drummer Jack Bonson, and guitarists Phil Haines and Tom Collett, to create a distinct take on classic, punchy rock. Quickly gaining traction following their debut gig, the lads have since had the pleasure of sharing stages with the likes of Chantel McGregor, Toseland, Barns Courtney and The Wholls, whilst receiving regular airplay on BBC Introducing.
With riffs fit to grace arenas one day, and with a rapidly growing reputation for being a hugely entertaining live act, Hollowstar are one of the rising stars of the burgeoning Cambridge rock scene. Having produced bands such as Lonely The Brave and Mallory Knox in recent years, Hollowstar are the latest band to emerge from the Cambridge and are already being hailed as the finest unsigned rock band in the area. Their mission is simple; To make some of the finest rock and roll ever heard on this side of the Atlantic.
