It already sounds promising, for sure our most diverse and dense record so far.

Recording Album & Upcoming Shows

News from Unhold! As of now we're entering the studio in Fribourg with 9 Songs to record, after weeks of rehearsal and internalizing the songstructures in our sleep. Mixing is set for December, everything after that is roughly planned out but subject to many shifting factors. We're aiming for an album release next year for sure. 

In the meantime we have a bunch of gigs coming up in December, looking forward to see you!

Leo's leaving.

With a heavy heart we announce that Leo Matkovic is doing his last live performance with Unhold this Friday. He has been a terrific companion to be around and great asset to the last 4 years in Unhold's existence. We part ways in best spirits and wish him all the best for all his future ventures. For the time being we will carry on working on the next album as a quartet. 

Schweren Herzens verkünden wir die letzte Live Show kommenden Freitag mit Leo Matkovic auf der Bühne. Er war und bleibt ein wunderbarer Zeitgenosse und war eine Bereicherung in den letzten 4 Jahren Unholds'. Wir trennen uns im Guten und wünschen ihm alles Beste bei seinen Unternehmungen. Für die unmittelbare Zukunft wird Unhold als Quartett am neuen Album weiterarbeiten.

Miriam, Dani, Thomas & Chippie

«Towering» Release!

Unhold Towering Cover Artwork «Towering» Release! Unholdmusic

existence fosters the urge for room and sonic space, perpetual and sweat bearing devotion. it draws from cumulated forces and visionariness. eyes fixed on the scenery it stands beside the ongoing commotion. Therein lies the necessity to deliver oneself to the frail, to detect and embrace one’s own fragility. never accustomed to dwell in shelter for too long. This is where the fourth studio-album «Towering» mountainously plunges down towards the spectator. A stubborn and imposing body of songs is rigged up, taking its stance clear and unapologetic. A colossus, preconceived and without debate. Unhold, bearing the malice spirit in its name, is in motion and displays itself in most flattering twilight, revealing a female side reformed in a new constitution. Sound and course remain unaltered, forging ahead. Taking roots was never intended. Aware of perishability, from the depths Unhold gather and unleash a new storm. Pushing through calm waters they’ll let the high tides rise even higher.

Welcome to the all new website of UNHOLD! We're excited to announce our new members in the band - Miriam Wolf on piano and vocals and Leo Matkovic on bass - they are those two who auditioned for the vacant spot on bass and we decided to keep them both, to which they luckily agreed. Leo was already involved doing visuals on the "Gold Cut" tour, Miriam brings artistic vision and experience gathered in bands such as Crippled Black Phoenix and My Wolf. We're in the process of pre-production, the new incarnation of the band and the new material sounds promising, so far! Our schedule aims for a new release in 2014. So keep in touch through social sites, we'll post updates here as well.
