Holy Family consists of three members from different parts of the Gothenburg region in Sweden. They started the band in the summer of 2009 with the goal to tour Eastern Europe. Initially the band was created only to do this one tour and then dissolve. They never actually reached Eastern Europe, but the band persisted. Later that year, during the economic crisis, they had trouble finding work other than odd jobs and chose to start working more whole-heartedly on Holy Family. They found themselves more and more satisfied with their songs and felt that Holy Family was worth going in for. The band is currently cranking out numerous demos which will eventually become their first proper record.
