OCTOBER 11 – Missouri pop rock band Hold Close have shared details on their new album Time, out January 18, 2019 on Hopeless Records. Fans can check out the first single, “Breath”, here:  

Time is the follow-up to 2017’s EP I’ll Never Go Back.  After working with Seth Henderson (Knuckle Puck, State Champs) on Time, Hold Close put together an extremely personal, introspective, heartbreaking album centered around growth, love, sorrow, death, and friendship.
Breath” encompasses many of the themes touched on throughout Time, and was inspired by a close friend of the band who passed away while they were writing the record.
A lot happened over this past year with friends and family,” vocalist Braxton Smiley explains. “We lost one of our really, really, good friends that we all grew up with to drug overdose right in the middle of writing the record. It was really tough, and it still is sometimes. A lot of the album essentially is about that; it’s about growth, love, sorrow, death, everything.”
Made up of vocalist Braxton Smiley, guitarists Jessee Everett and Charlie Edel, bassist Devon Edwards, and drummer Marshall Martin, the group have known each other since high school. Originally all playing in different bands, they got to know each other through the local scene.
When asked what he’d like fans to take away from the record, Smiley is decisive. “Definitely the very first line on the record: ‘Time will always heal,'” he says. “Just give it time, everything is better. We all go through the same shit, you know. Whether it be everyday struggle stuff or family stuff or relationship or friendship or money or anything, it’s all good. Be positive. In time, it’ll just become how you want it to be.
Time is the band’s first full-length record, and is out January 18, 2019 on Hopeless Records. Fans can pre-order it here: smarturl.it/holdclosemerch. For more information, please visit: https://www.hopelessrecords.com/
