Hawthorne Heights Premiere “Hard To Breathe” Music Video

Hawthorne Heights have premiered a new video for their new song “Hard To Breathe.” This track will appear on the band’s new b-sides and rarities compilation “Lost Frequencies.” That effort will be released on November 8 and it will feature new songs, acoustic tracks, and covers.

JT Woodruff commented:

“I grew up in a home built on a fractured marriage, alcoholism, and a mother who loved us, but just didn’t know how to articulate it into words. We packed up all of our things and left my father behind in the winter of 1989, and never looked back. I didn’t see him again, until he was in a coffin.

‘Hard To Breathe’ is the story of my youth from 1988-1992. I spent a lot of time with quiet resentment until I found my circle of friends and felt outside love for the first time. While the story has some dark twists and turns, it’s really just an articulation of some of the coldest nights of my life.”

Silverstein Announce 20th Anniversary Tour

Silverstein have announced the dates for their 20th anniversary tour. The trek will find the band performing three sets including a “Discovering The Waterfront” set, a greatest hits set, and a stripped-down acoustic set. Four Year Strong and I The Mighty will open.

Shane Told commented:

“It feels absolutely incredible to be celebrating 20 years as a band! It feels like just yesterday we were starting this thing in Josh‘s basement – singing out of Shel Silverstein books and National Geographic magazines – and here we are embarking on our biggest tour ever. Playing three sets is definitely a huge undertaking, but you only turn 20 once. I’m excited to give our fans the longest show of our career – pulling out all the stops.”

“It’s been an amazing 20 years and this epic show is our way of saying thank you to all of our fans who jam out to us – whether they have been there since the first EP or just discovered us last month. We have the best fans in the world. Their endless support has been the reason we have been able to do this constantly for the last 20 years – to give back with this tour is the least we can do.”

Hawthorne Heights Premiere “Starlighter (Echo, Utah)” Music Video

Hawthorne Heights have premiered a new video for their song “Starlighter (Echo, Utah).” This track is from the band’s latest album “Bad Frequencies.” JT Woodruff commented:

“Since this song is about how much I hate winter, I really wanted to film footage of some of our favorite fans in California having fun. I want to run as far as I can from that snowy night in Echo, Utah and I always want to run back to California anyway. The song is about having no regrets, and always looking forward to the next stop in your life. Crank it up, and stay out of the snow. Palm trees forever.”

Silverstein Announce “When Broken Is Easily Fixed” 15th Anniversary Tour

Silverstein have announced the dates for their “When Broken Is Easily Fixed” 15th anniversary tour. The band plan to play the album in full on this trek followed by a greatest hits set. Hawthorne Heights, As Cities Burn, and Capstan will serve as support.

Silverstein frontman Shane Told said the following:

“As hard as we work on pushing forward with our new music, it’s fun to reminisce and I think important to give some love and respect to the music that started it all for us and the fans who have supported us since the beginning. We’ve never been a band to tear down or insult our older material, and I’ve always said we will always show it the respect it deserves. This tour is doing exactly that.

It’s going to be an emotional ride for sure. But I know we’ll all have smiles on our faces the whole time. It brings us back to an era of innocence and excitement, getting into our beat up van with the heat permanently stuck on, and driving all over America for the first time.

We’re going to be able to do things, production-wise, we simply couldn’t have done 15 years ago because we didn’t have the budget — and in some cases the technology wasn’t there yet. This is going to be the best you’ve seen our band — we’re pulling out all the stops.”

Hawthorne Heights Premiere New Song “Starlighter (Echo, Utah)”

Hawthorne Heights have premiered a new song titled “Starlighter (Echo, Utah),” via Rock Sound. This track is from the band’s new album “Bad Frequencies,” which will be released on April 27.

JT Woodruff said the following about the song:

“I wrote the lyrics to ‘Starlighter’ after the worst drive of my life, in the mountains of Utah. There was snow pouring everywhere, the van I was driving didn’t have heat or defrost, and the passenger was wiping the window frantically with the sock he was wearing, so I could see the road. It was 14 miles ’til the next exit, and our lives kept flashing before our eyes. When we eventually made it safely to an exit, we left the van in the middle of the parking lot, checked into a room, and when I stopped trembling I wrote lyrics about summer. I needed to get my head out of the snow, and think about how this situation would be different if it was in June. So while my mind was racing, I crafted a story about a group of friends whose entire lives are ahead of them, and they just want to have one last weekend blow out. There are laughs, arguments, adventure, and everything that makes a summer weekend great. But the overlying theme is that I thought I was going to die that night, with my friends, just so I could sing and play guitar. Pretty crucial haha.”

He also added the following about the album:

“I think it represents some of the best times of our lives, set to music. I wanted to capture the emotion of your favorite summer growing up, when you just had the best time of your life, but now it’s all over. I wanted to capture the sadness that comes after extreme happiness. The beauty and isolation that comes with the end of excitement is something that is truly special. We spend our lives mired in the highs and lows, but we should really focus on the the in between. We have always just continued to move forward in Hawthorne Heights, and I think that this proves that. We don’t let the bad times get us down, and we don’t let the party last too long. We try to convey that message to our fans at all times.”
