The Black Hollies Announce Summer US Tour * New October 6th Release Date for "Softly Towards The Light!"

Reflecting on that fateful day when four incredibly individualistic forces combined their hidden powers and combusted inside a small attic, it's pretty unbelievable to see just how far they've come. Recording their first 45rpm single under the watchful eye of long time best friend / sound engineer extraordinaire, Mike Olear, inside that very attic, nobody in attendance that weekend would have ever predicted that "Tell Me What You Want," would receive national and international attention, and end up on television sets across America.

Their debut LP, 'Crimson Reflections,' followed shortly after, and in March of 2008, the group's second LP, 'Casting Shadows' was released. The departure of one of the group's founding members, drummer Scott Thomas Bolasci, was an extremely sad but understanding one. Shortly afterwards, percussionist Nick Ferrante filled the drum throne and the band set off on two tours of North America. Upon returning back from their second tour, Justin Angelo Morey heard a song called, "If It's All The Same To You Babe" by the Luther Ingram Orchestra. This particular song would serve as the catalyst for the upcoming writing sessions that would immediately follow their return home. It's nearing the end of May 2009, and as we speak, the world is anxiously awaiting the arrival of their third LP, "Softly Towards The Light," scheduled for release shortly after the album's first single, "Gloomy Monday Morning," becomes this Summer's floor filler anthem.
