Holding Absence have revealed that bassist James Joseph has parted ways with the band. 

James has been with Holding Absence since their inception and played on all of their releases, most recently the band's single 'Afterlife' and upcoming album 'The Greatest Mistake Of My Life'. 

In a statement, James reveals that he is set to put more focus on his other project James And The Cold Gun.

You can read it in full below:

"Dear Holding Absence Family,

I started this band five years ago and it has been a huge part of my life, I've travelled all over the UK and Europe, made amazing memories, played shows with some of my favourite bands and made friends for life.
However, after spending the past 12 months self-reflecting and writing songs with my housemate I have decided it is time for me to step down from Holding Absence to focus on the music we've been working on with
James And The Cold Gun. I wish the guys well for the future and I hope you enjoy the album we made together.

I love every single person in the Holding Absence community and I want to thank you all for your love, support and kindness. I can't wait to see you all again some day.

James Joseph"

 


The band added their own short message in a post on Facebook, where they said:

"Holding Absence is sad to announce that 'Afterlife' will be our last song with bassist James Joseph.

The band and James have split on amicable terms.

We wish James all the best with his future endeavours!"
