To celebrate the release of their highly anticipated debut album, ‘When The Storms Would Come’, Aussie indie rockers Holy Holy will hit the road on an extensive national tour starting next month.
Kicking off at the Darwin Festival on August 13, the tour will venture on to Bunbury, Perth, Fremantle, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Launceston, Hobart, Adelaide, Geelong, Ballarat, Melbourne, Thirroul, Newcastle and Canberra, with a final show in Sydney set for September 19.
Since their debut in 2013 the group have honed a nostalgic sound and style they are proud of. And now that their debut album is complete they’re excited about playing some homecoming headliners.

Holy Holy have only recently returned from their first ever European tour, wowing audiences at iconic festivals such as The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Dot To Dot, London Calling and Primavera.
“We hit the autobahns and motorways with our sat nav and spliDer van and had an awesome time playing so many amazing festivals,” guitarist Oscar Dawson enthuses. “The highlight was hiFng Barcelona at the end of the tour where we played Primavera Sound. Playing to a Spanish crowd, looking out across the Mediterranean as the sun went down, what an experience, we can’t wait to get back there!”
With classic songs, huge supports, extensive radio play, an overwhelmingly positive response from press both here and overseas, sold-out headline shows and international gigs under their belts, Holy Holy have already achieved so much. And now their debut full‐length album is finally here and it is vaster and wilder than anything they’ve released to date. Recorded in Brisbane with Ma Redlich (Emma Louise, Ball Park Music, The Trouble With Templeton),
The album unveils the band pushing in to new sonic territory with daring & classic guitars, driving rhythms and even bigger vocals.
Holy Holy is fronted by the songwriting team, vocalist/composer Timothy Carroll and guitarist/composer Oscar Dawson. They are joined on the road by permanent drummer Ryan Strathie (Hungry Kids Of Hungary, Andy Bull), touring bassist Graham Ritchie (Airling, Emma Louise), and Brisbane-based producer Ma Redlich as their touring keys player. Joining them for a large part of the tour will be Melbourne band, Fractures. Other supports include Methyl Ethel and Violet Swells.
