Holding Absence announce partnership with ‘Safe Gigs For Women’

UK Headline Tour starts March 21stHolding AbsenceWelsh post hardcore quintet Holding Absence have today confirmed that THE NIGHTMARES will be replacing Capsize as support on their upcoming March UK tour. The band have also announced a partnership with Safe Gigs For Women who will be present at all shows to offer support and education on the importance of making the live music experience a safe and inclusive environment.

Holding Absence comment

“As a band, we hate more than anything to have to cancel a tour or let down our fans – but the only thing worse than having to do that, is having to do so due to particular shows becoming a place where our fans may feel unsafe or unwelcome. After this experience, we’ve decided to do everything we can to tackle the issue and make all Holding Absence shows safe for all people. With that in mind, we’ll be bringing Safe Gigs For Women Out with us to help lend support and comfort to those who may need it”
