----

The Hollow Glow is a band that thrives on writing tight, well crafted songs with clear, memorable hooks and then performing them with the intensity of extreme possession. The music is something familiar, yet at the same time, something new and different altogether; drawing influence from bands like: A Perfect Circle, Foo Fighters, Muse, Silversun Pickups, Radiohead and well...Ra (no getting around that one.)

The band is the brainchild of Ben Carroll (Vocals/Guitar) who is known as a member of the Universal recording act Ra and as a cutting edge instrumental recording artist. Ben has been hard at work recruiting the best that the Portland, ME music scene has to offer.

In 2010 The Hollow Glow self-released two full length albums “Out of the Darkness” (released 05/11/10) & “Into the Light” (released 12/21/10.) Upon it's release iTunes listed “Into the Light” right on the homepage for “Rock” in the “New and Noteworthy” section for 4 weeks straight. Not a bad feat a brand new band that is completely independent and is still virtually an unknown within the industry. The Hollow Glow have also been getting sporadic radio airplay across the country and have several songs coming up in a handful of indie movies this year

2011 will prove to be a great year for The Hollow Glow as the band re-emerges on the scene all dressed up and ready to kill.


What's being said about The Hollow Glow:

Katrina of Portland Maine's rock station The Bone says: “I'm in love with this album...Kinda like a super group right here.”

CrowfeatheR, program director at WOMM Burlington, VT says: “The Hollow Glow is flavored with Ben’s virtuoso guitar playing and pleasantly flawed vocal character...This is a heavy hitting album from one of our region’s top performers.”

Andy Austin of Portland Maine's rock station The Bone says: “Nice album…solid production, great hooks, and it has melody...gotta have melody, I don’t care who you are. The Hollow Glow is The Cars with a bit of road rage!”

Kennedy of WTOS Augusta, ME says: “Hiding in the Northeast corner of the United States, The Hollow Glow is right now the region's best kept secret. Ben Carroll's lyrics, songwriting and arranging are sensitive one minute, angry and intense the next, but through the entire full-length album always completely honest. With the addition of bassist Tom Connors and drummer Jason Leone, the Hollow Glow is definitely a band to keep an eye on in 2011.”

Brad Wilson of Toronto Rock Radio says: “The Toronto Rock Radio Show proudly supports Ben Carroll and The Hollow Glow - Ben is a musician of our times who is steeped in the knowledge of all the great rockers that came before him and magically brings all this knowledge forward to give us an exciting, fresh, and long needed new approach to modern rock that has just enough familiarity to comfort us coupled with enough unknown to wow us!”

Alex Kantarelis of Pulse Magazine says: "Guitarist Ben Carroll of the alternative metal band Ra has a new project called The Hollow Glow, which marks his first time as the lead singer. The new self-titled and self-released album has already gained quite a bit of attention all over the world. The Hollow Glow shows off a maturity in Carroll’s songwriting ability, and takes you on a ride from start to finish. Some notable songs include "Crazy Like You Read About," the upbeat “Isn’t Love,” and mellow jam “12 hours” in which Carroll shows off an unbelievable vocal range."


iTunes listed THG's "Into the Light" right on the homepage for their “Rock” section for 4 weeks straight - 12/21/10-01/18/11

Track Name: Crazy Like You Read About
Oh I am
Crazy like you read about
With just one look you knocked me out
No, I'm never going to let you doubt
For you I'm going to go all out

I''ll take you and I'll make you mine
Your love is like the finest wine
It's calculated by design
To take me down in record time

Oh I'm Crazy Oh you know I'm crazy for you
Crazy Crazy like you read about
Crazy Oh you know I'm crazy for you
Crazy Crazy like you read about

You are getting underneath my skin
I pull you even further in
Your love is like a deadly sin
That undermines me from within

Oh I'm Crazy Oh you know I'm crazy for you
Crazy Crazy like you read about
Crazy Oh you know I'm crazy for you
Crazy Crazy like you read about

All I feel is getting hazy
Under a spell, you drive me crazy
All I want is just a maybe
Maybe one day you'll be mine

Oh I'm Crazy Oh you know I'm crazy for you
Crazy Crazy like you read about
Crazy Oh you know I'm crazy for you
Crazy Crazy like you read about
Crazy Oh you know I'm crazy for you
Crazy Crazy like you read about
Crazy Oh you know I'm crazy for you
Crazy Crazy like you read about

I'm Crazy like you read about
I'm Crazy like you read about
Track Name: Come Undone
As the sun heads down and I'm standing around just beside myself
Oh you are the one on the tip of my tongue that has me come undone
No matter how hard I try just to stay on the sly I guess I can't deny
That you are the one that got me come undone from the moment that I met you

Oh no I can't deny

I've come undone it's just begun
You know I've got a feeling that you're the one that got me
Come undone It's just begun
You know I got a feeling it's you

As the night grows long and I'm singing a song just to turn you on
Am I luring you in cause this cannot begin with a love that's unrequited
No matter how hard I try I just cannot deny you never seem to buy
That I am the one with a love that's begun, it's now and it's forever

Oh no I can't deny

I've come undone it's just begun
You know I've got a feeling that you're the one that got me
Come undone It's just begun
You know I got a feeling it's you

You play with my head and you play with my heart
I never had a chance right from the start

I've come undone it's just begun
You know I've got a feeling that you're the one that got me
I've come undone it's just begun
You know I've got a feeling that you're the one that got me
Come undone It's just begun
You know I got a feeling it's you

That I've been looking for
Track Name: Isn't Love
I want to tell you a little story about a girl I met
She took me down down down
She took me down down even further down
Right when we first met

Oh no I don't know what it is

Love baby, love baby,
Yeah you know that this isn't that oh no
Love baby, love baby,
Yeah you know that this definitely
Isn't love

I want to get another story with that girl I had
She drives me mad mad mad
She likes it bad bad really fucking bad
Want to make her my pet

Oh no I don't know what it is

Love baby, love baby,
Yeah you know that this isn't that oh no
Love baby, love baby,
Yeah you know that this definitely
Isn't love

There will come a time
When I want to push you past the line
Down
Now has come the time
I'm going to take you and make you mine
We're going down down down
Cause now it is the time
I'm going to push you past the line
I want to watch you going down

You're going down

Oh no I don't know what it is
Oh no I don't know

Love baby, love baby,
Yeah you know that this isn't that oh no
Love baby, love baby,
Yeah you know that this definitely
Isn't love
Track Name: Head West
At nights end the dawn is approaching
Shifts my will by creeping up slowly
As darkened souls slip past my windows
I take flight, retreat into the night

Head West escape from the hollow glow
Head West for darkness
Head West away from the rising sun
Head West for darkness, run for your life again

When eyes bore down upon me deciding
I feel all the weight of the world
Sink into my darkened perceptions
Compromising, my self-deception

Head West escape from the hollow glow
Head West for darkness
Head West away from the gaining sun
Head West for darkness, run for your life again

You don't see it, Quite like I do

All my shadows
Whispering their taunting screams
Undermining
The shroud of bliss my darkness brings to me

Head West escape from the hollow glow
Head West for darkness
Head West away from the rising sun
Head West for darkness, run for your life again

Head West, For Darkness
Head West, For Darkness
Run for you life again
Track Name: Burn Away
Inside the violence has gone away, it's fading
It lets me be in silence I watch the flames,

Devouring, Desire that's finally running free
This fire devours all I see

So burn, burn ,burn ,burn away

Recognize my wounded sanity, it's fading
Leaving me to act upon my dark desires,

Unveiling, Desire that's finally running free
This fire devours all I see

So burn, burn ,burn ,burn away
Burn, burn ,burn ,burn away

It's silently assailing me now, all I see, it dies
Violently by my own hand haunting me with cries why oh why?

So burn, burn ,burn ,burn away
Burn, burn ,burn ,burn away
Track Name: 12 Hours
Just yesterday I wasn't sure that I could feel this way
But now today I've gone and found myself this twist of fate

12 hours straight wrapped in your arms
12 hours and I'm in love with you.

With you, I am in love with you
With you, I am in love with you

All I can say is that I hope you feel the same for me
I'm scared inside, I've got a feeling you'll just cast aside

12 hours straight wrapped in my arms
12 hours and I'm in love with you.

With you, I am in love with you
With you, I am in love with you

Oh can't you see I'm waiting here for you

I just can't take it
I just can't take it
I have to know just how you feel
I just can't take it
I can't live this way

Don't turn away from what you feel
We just might have something real

12 hours straight wrapped in your arms
12 hours and I'm in love with you.

With you, I am in love with you
With you, I am in love with you
With you, I am in love with you
With you

Oh now you know just how I feel for you

I just can't take it

I have to know just how you feel
I just can't take it
I just can't take it
I have to know just how you feel
Track Name: Falling Into You
I can feel you in my veins
In my heart, in my brain
Everyday, feel it grow, just let it go
Electric touch that shocks my soul
Wakes me up and makes me whole
Can't you see, that you and me, can set this free

I'm falling further into you
Everything you'll ever do
I'm falling right into your heart
I love you so, I love all that you are

I can feel your love in me
Light me up and set me free
You're everything, and all I want is everything
I just want you in my life
Stuck in my heart just like a knife
Don't be shy, cause you and I, will never die

I'm falling further into you
Everything you'll ever do
I'm falling right into your heart
I love you so, I love all that you are

I'll follow you to anywhere
Just so you can see I care, oh yeah
