Our Hollow, Our Home have released a brand new single entitled Battle X City feat. Samantha Bower via Arising Empire Records.

The catchy new single features footage from the band’s recent tour and festival appearances and demonstrates that metalcore still has plenty of life to give in 2022. Listen below.

Speaking about signing to Arising Empire, the Southampton-based metalcore devotees stated:

We’re super stoked to join the AE family, we always said that we would love to sign with a label, so long as it was one that understood the ethos of this band, and loved it as much as we and our fans do!

It’s safe to say that we felt that was met with ample amounts with Arising Empire! 

No strangers to the UK metal scene, Our Hollow, Our Home released their third album ‘Burn In The Flood’ in 2021. The record represents a band building up a dedicated fan base independently in the UK metal scene over the last five years.

Our Hollow, Our Home will be touring the UK and Europe in October, with support from Aviana, TheCityisOurs, and Glass Heart.

UK dates are as follows:

Our Hollow, Our Home – BATTLE X CITY (Feat. Samantha Bower) Lyrics

Maybe in time I will make it through the worst of it
But for now I’m waging war with myself
And I can’t, seem to let the silence break
I’ve heard this all before, but nothing ever seems to change.
Blacked out, run down,
can’t someone give me a break

Force fed irony, it’s getting stale
I’m sick and tired of always blaming myself
But it’s not socially acceptable to ask you to help me

Lie awake
counting days I could’ve had
Could it be that
I’ve been locked inside my head
And all my fears and phobias
Are just regrets?

I know it’s hard,
To see where it all went wrong,
But when heaven comes around
I’ll just keep my head down
It’s all so crystal clear (I’m already here)
Yeah I know
that things don’t always go to plan
But life’s too short to let the little things bring you down
Take the fight to the fault lines, and make it what defines you

Yeah make it what it defines you

We’re forced into the shadows
So we fight, fight
We give into the dark just to feel the light
Bright, so bright, breaching through the doubt that illuminates me, oh
I just can’t shake the weight
Of hollowed hope and numbered days
So we fight, we’ll give into the guilt just to feel alive

Yet again, I’m sinking into solitude
What I’d give just to find some peace of mind
But after all is said and done,
I can make this right

I know it’s hard,
To see where it all went wrong,
But when heaven comes around
I’ll just keep my head down
It’s all so crystal clear (I’m already here)
Yeah I know
that things don’t always go to plan
But life’s too short to let the little things bring you down
Take the fight to the fault lines, and make it what defines you

My heads in overdrive, I can’t find the brakes
Collision course with a coma, coming up in first place… yeah, alright

BATTLE X CITY (CONTINUED)

Foot to the floor
Put your pedal to the metal
Headed straight for
the frontlines
Cos battle city never settles

You Better play your cards right
Or you’ll be headed home tonight

And I know it’s hard
To see where it all went wrong
But you’ve come so far to give it up
And I won’t let you fall
Can’t you see that the worlds still turning?
Cos tunnel vision will just lead you to the furnace
You gotta know, gotta know, that’s it’s not your time to burn

I know it’s hard,
To see where it all went wrong,
But when heaven comes around
I’ll just keep my head down
It’s all so crystal clear (I’m already here)

Now i can see that world’s still turning
So take my hand cos the curtain’s calling

You gotta know, gotta know
