New Year – New EP – New Tour
No rest for the wicked! 2004 is a busy year for east London's The Holiday Plan. After a successful tour with Matchbook Romance in January their first ever headline tour under their belts through February and March, they set off again with rising stars, and best mates, Billy Talent.
Their second EP 'The Green Lights EP' is out now through Fallout Records. Although still true to their post-hardcore influences, with tracks like 'Wasting Time', and 'Stories' the band are not afraid to rock out even more with the title track 'Green Lights And Stop Signs' showing the depth and diversity in their ability.
The band are currently working on their debut album in New Jersey with Sal Villanueva and Tim Gilles (Thursday, Taking Back Sunday).
Billy Talent support dates are:
09 March Newcastle Northumbria University
10 March Glasgow King Tuts
12 March Leeds Cockpit
13 March Manchester Academy
14 March Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms
15 March London Carling Academy N1 – Main Room
17 March Birmingham Academy 2
“The Holiday Plan are the best bits of Funeral For A Friend and Million Dead married with melodic, pop sensibilities and super-fucked in the ear. Mar-vell-ous.” – The Fly
“The Holiday Plan's EP lures us into its den with shimmering House Of Love guitars… and the realisation that they may very well be the new Hundred Reasons” – NME
“An impressive bunch…good stage presence, engaging personalities and first class emo tunes” – Rocksound
“It's emo, but not as we know it, welcome to the great leap forward” – LOGO
