Brand new band Ring Hollow is debuting their brand new single, “Takeover,” today on HM. The Apple Valley, CA band is in good hands, starting out with manager and Winds of Plague bassist Andrew Glover, who has also worked as a producer on notable titles like Sleeping Giant’s latest, Finished People.

Ring Hollow will be releasing a new song at the beginning of the month for the next six months for a total of six new tracks. Today, they’re starting with “Takeover.” Drummer Greg Hawkins spoke with HM about that first single:

“Being our first song released as Ring Hollow, we wanted this song to represent everything we stand for as a band, musically and lyrically. We are excited to launch this new project and for people to see what Ring Hollow is all about.”
