Hold Close Share New Single “Tropical Depression” || New Album ‘Time’ Out January 18




JANUARY 14 – Missouri pop rock band Hold Close have shared a new single, “Tropical Depression”, off their upcoming album Time, out January 18 on Hopeless Records. Fans can check it out here: smarturl.it/TropDepressVideo

Speaking to the new single, guitarist Jessee Everett said,

“Tropical Depression is a song about being depressed in a relationship and how that affects it. It’s about how it’s not always the other partner’s fault, because depression is a mental illness that can leech onto anyone. It’s about dealing with that depression together. If you have a loved one that is depressed, you can’t just give up on them or allow it to swallow you. You’ve got to embrace it and help them through it. Or vice versa. The song can be taken a lot of different ways but it’s definitely not a break up song.”

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. Late last year, they shared the single “Cloud9“.

Made up of vocalist Braxton Smiley, guitarists Jessee Everett and Charlie Edel, 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/HoldCloseTime. For more information, please visit: https://www.hopelessrecords.com/
