Hollow Truth Hardcore / Co. Wicklow

HOLLOW TRUTH is a Thrash/Hardcore crossover band from Bray in Wicklow, formed in September 2012. Drawing from influences such as CRO-MAGS and SUICIDAL TENDENCIES.

The band have been keeping themselves very busy since their formation with a steady flow of releases. They recorded their debut “The Earth Shook” demo very quickly in October 2012 with James Eager in The Hive Studios in Kilcoole and released it online for free in November. It was released on tape in Ireland by Dead End Music and in the UK b Slow It Down Records. Their second tape “Prometheus Bound” was recorded, mixed and mastered by Shaun Cadogan in June 2013 and again released online for free with tape versions again being issued through Dead End Music.

They worked with Cadogan again for their following releases. “The Power To Endure” recorded at Last Light Recordings in October 2013 and released in April in 2014. And their contribution to the “Hollow Truth / Hardships Split” tape released in October 2014. May 2015 saw the band release “The War Economy” and a music video for the title track. A music video was also released in late December 2015 for a track ‘Golden Rule’, ahead of yet another split, this time with DEATHTRAP, which was released in 2016 under the name of “An Infernal Affinity”.

The following year saw the band release their self titled “Hollow Truth” EP in 2017. And soon after they called it a day.
