"Holy Hell" blir bandets första albumsläpp sedan 2016 och den tragiska bortgången av grundaren/gitarristen Tom Searle, efter hans tre år långa kamp mot cancer. Toms tvillingbror och bandets trummis Dan kommenterar:
"In those first months after Tom’s death, I didn’t deal with it at all and I felt so unhappy and anxious. I’d ignored it and just tried to cope. But I knew that at some point, I had to learn from it."
Sångaren Sam Carter tillägger:
"It’s at times like that you ask yourself, ‘What is left?’. As a group of friends, we had to find something.”
Bandet kände att de stod vid ett vägskäl där de kunde ta ett av två val, berättar Dan:
“Feel sorry for yourself and believe the world to be a horrible place and let it defeat you. Or let it inspire us to live the life that Tom would have wanted us to live. I was very worried about people taking away a despondent message from the album. I felt a level of responsibility to provide a light at the end of the tunnel for people who are going through terrible experiences.”
