HoldFast. formed in 2011, consisting of brothers Tommy and Mikey and their cousin Charlie Maddocks. Growing up together, the rock trio from Colorado idolized artists such as U2, The Cure, and Arcade Fire. Their early days were spent in Charlie's basement, working on their live show for Fort Collins' FoCoMX. On February 25th, 2017, the Fort Collins-based trio released their self-titled EP to a crowd of their closest friends and family members. In the summer of 2017, they recorded the single, "Strobe Life," which was released November 4th. In the summer of 2018, the band self-recorded a two-song EP, and released it a month later. The band is currently getting ready for their most ambitious release yet, which was recorded at The Blasting Room with Chris Beeble. We wanted to share a little about what our band name means. We're about heartfelt songs, examining everything in life carefully. Our name kind of came from that. The idea that we need to hold fast to that which is good, & that life is not always easy. I write songs about love, friendship, depression, family, the past, & the future. Pretty much anything that comes to mind. What's funny is I'm pretty sure the real story of how we got our band name has to do with Dictionary.com. "Holdfast" was the "Word of the Day." I had kept a list of band name ideas in my iPhone notes, & most of them came from those "Words of the Day." I admired the thought of "Holdfast" being one word, but it's meaning being in a verbal sense. Holding fast to each other is what we- as brothers - have done, & it’s what we all will continue to do through this life.
