The band recorded their debut album entitled Moment of Impact in 2010 featuring contributions from Sevendust members Lajon Witherspoon and Morgan Rose. The album was given a limited release the same year, with a full release planned for 2011. In 2012 the album was released in an expanded edition under the title Impact. In 2013, the band released their sophomore album, Evolve.
Their debut album Stories was released in 2010. Following its release, the band began touring as a supporting act with various bands including Evans Blue, Taddy Porter and Framing Hanley. The first single, "Liar", has had over 1100 spins on SiriusXM's Octane channel, and went Top 10 on their playlist. The second single, "Look In My Eyes", rose into the Top 5 on Sirius/XM's Octane.
Rains parted ways with their management/indie label, Sounds and Sights, in early 2011 and began operating as an independent artist. They released their single "Look In My Eyes" in the fall of 2011 and also, recorded and released a music video for the track.
“There’s a brand of rock for every taste, but if I had to pick my poison, I’ve always gravitated towards a heavy, driving, edgy rock song more than any other. If it’s loud with a dash of frantic or angry pace to it, then sign me up, I’m interested. The guys from 3 Years Hollow subscribe to the same rock preference, and they successfully modeled their sound to fall in line accordingly. – Chris Brack, Rocksposure.com
Three Years Hollow’s debut album ‘Ascension’ has been well received by fans and critics alike. It’s an album that is aggressive on tempos, heavy on guitar riffs, yet well-defined and melodic on vocals. ‘Ascension’ contains fan favorite tracks ‘Wasted’ and ‘The End of Demise’ among others. One can’t help but notice the edge the album has from a lyric perspective. “The motivation for me on Ascension was that I was ticked off at girls. I was ticked off at everything!” says 3YH front man Jose Urquiza.
The long awaited follow up to ‘Ascension’ will be available early 2012. The recording process for this album has taken them to Groovemaster Studios in Chicago, IL to work with Tadpole (Disturbed, Staind, Adelitas Way, Seether) on production and mixing, then on to Brad Blackwood of Euphonic Masters (Adelitas Way, Evanescense, Sick Puppies, Skillet) for mastering. “In the years since Ascension, so much has happened for us personally. Life has happened for us. The new album subject has a positive message. It’s hard to write dark, angry songs when you’re so happy about everything” says Jose. With all of these positives, it’s no wonder why the band has been anxious to give the fans a taste of what they’ve been working on. That taste is the first single, ‘Chemical Ride’.
But don’t think that this album will have one single and a bunch of fluff to accompany it. As Jose states, “The song I’m most excited for people to hear is ‘We Belong’. It is so different from everything else that we do. It has so much harmony work in it. The whole message of the song is where ever I need to be, that’s where I want to be. Take me where we all belong.”
Three Years Hollow isn’t just a great studio band. They take a tremendous amount of pride in their live show as well. “We are commonly told that we sound even better live than we do on our album. That is something we take a lot of pride in.” says guitarist Tony Reeves. That pride in the live show has been noticed by promoters and has afforded them the privilege to compile an impressive resume of stage mates. That resume includes the likes of Chevelle, Buckcherry, Puddle of Mudd, Pop Evil, Taproot, Black Stone Cherry, Soil, Evans Blue, Tesla, The Veer Union, Janus, The Used, Candlebox, Anew Revolution, Kyng, Destrophy, Caroline's Spine, Marc Rizzo (Soulfly), Ben Kenney & DJ Kilmore (Incubus), Psychostick, Straight Line Stitch, Texas Hippie Coalition, 40 Below Summer and The Burden Brothers, among others.
From here, the sky is the limit for Three Years Hollow. 2012 brings a new album and a new level of excitement. They intend to get the music out to as many people as possible through distribution, promotion, and touring. The goal is to attract the right support to help 3 Years Hollow take their musical career to the next level and every level beyond. That level is definitely somewhere the band believes, to quote the song, “Where we all belong.”
The band entered the studio on January 22, 2012 to begin recording their debut album Last Parade, which was ultimately released on June 5, 2012 via 7 Bros. Records. Their first single, "Biggest Fan", was released onto digital media outlets in April 24, 2012. Subsequently a tour followed in the late summer alongside the bands Nonpoint and Eye Empire.
Talking about the project Lowery has explained that "It all has a dark spooky twist to it; kind of Nine Inch Nails meets Foo Fighters. [...] We felt like it was time to explore a little bit beyond Sevendust.", and also that the sound of the band is "...a lot different from Sevendust, it's hard but it’s not the same type of heavy that Sevendust is.".
