Rapidly rising US metalcore outfit and UNFD’s latest signings Hollow Front have revealed a new cut of their track ‘Falling Apart’ featuring Fit For A King’s Ryan Kirby.
The release comes as UNFD release a special re-issue of Hollow Front’s acclaimed debut album Loose Threads on vinyl for the first time. Featuring the full album, alongside ‘Falling Apart’, and recent new cuts ‘Wearing Thin’ & ‘Loose Threads (Reimagined)’, fans can order limited copies now.
Hollow Front vocalist Tyler Tate shares just how bleak and hopeless ‘Falling Apart’ is:
“It’s an extremely dark song about my views of the world we live in today. From where I’ve been standing, especially during/after 2020, it’s become impossible to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you’re constantly surrounded by the negativity our world has been seemingly plagued with,” he says.
“In reference to the title, I think the fabric of humanity is falling apart, ravaged by greed, disease, and an utter lack of empathy for our fellow man. We’re a complicated species, with all the capabilities to create a peaceful and harmonious world, but instead we use our powers to destroy and divide… and while my views of the world may be morose, I don’t have much “faith” in humanity doing the right thing. While I truly hope it happens, I won’t be holding my breath.”

On teaming up with FFAK vocalist and Hollow Front management Ryan Kirby, Tate shares how the moment feels full circle:
“We’ve been working together for over two years now and without Ryan, we definitely wouldn’t be where we are today. Having him hop on ‘Falling Apart’ to guest feature for this re-release of the song was a real treat for us. Everyone in the band has been huge fans of FFAK, and a lot of HF’s original sound came from being inspired by Kirby and his band’s work. It feels like it’s come full circle in a way and we couldn’t be more proud to have someone like Ryan in our corner.”
The arrival of Hollow Front’s debut LP Loose Threads in June 2020 saw the Michigan locals declared an immediate must-watch. After clocking over 1 Million streams in its first week and 5 Million+ in a matter of months, Hollow Front found themselves on the tip of a global breakout and soon signed to UNFD.
The band join a huge crop of North American talent on the label’s roster, with recent additions including ERRA, Frank Iero, Silverstein and Like Moths To Flames, on top of the likes of Stray From The Path, Silent Planet and LIMBS.
Limited copies of the extended re-issue of Loose Threads are available now through UNFD.
