Hollus is the product of guitar player and lead songwriter Michael Lux-Sauer, who started the group as a solo project under the same name in 2001. After spending more than a year in the studio recording, “The Farce,” a record which would never be released, Lux-Sauer decided to scrap the project, and began writing songs for something undoubtedly grandeur. The goal of the new Hollus was created out of Lux-Sauer’s self-serving longing and need to smash the apathy and mediocrity of what was being heard in the rock scene at the time. Something not just based in rock music, but something that gave you all the feelings that no modern rock group had been giving him. Music of raw power and artistic exitement that could be given to the people for exactly that.

He called on childhood friend and collaborator Jamison Acker to sing a few songs he had written. Acker’s howling, reminiscent of greats like Steve Marriott and Paul Rodgers, shook Lux’s vision into shape, and by adding the loose-cannon Kenny Jones-esque drumming of Matthew “Bones” Perryman, and the lightning lead bass playing of Sean Blythe, the four old friends had everything they needed.

The group began quickly it’s first rehearsal, with the members learning and collaborating on four original punk-infused blues tunes that would set the bar for everything else Hollus would write, as well as showing an instant subconscious bond between the group
