Originally released in 2008, this is the first time The Holy Pictures has been available on vinyl.

The Holy Pictures is an album whose incubation has lasted almost the entire length of Holmes' career. To cut straight to Holmes' own words, “The story of this album really began on the 4th of August 1996, when my mother, Sarah Holmes, passed away. I had always wanted to make a record about my life in Belfast and all the things attached to that - family, friends, loss, love and starting a family of my own. All the stuff that shapes the person you become.” Personal themes as a basis for creative work proved to be challenging though, hence The Holy Pictures brewing for a period of over a decade while Holmes carried on with his eclectic and productive career to date. The record features Holmes’ on vocals for the first time including on standout track I Heard Wonders which was a significant part of the soundtrack to the memorable 2012 London Olympic Opening Ceremony.
