Hawthorne Heights, formerly known as A Day in the Life, is from Dayton, Ohio & formed together in 2001.
This track guest features Brendan Murphy, vocalist for Counterparts, & is coming off their upcoming album: “The Rain Just Follows Me,” which will be released digitally on September 10th.
According to a press release, this track & the forthcoming album were written before the pandemic & stands as some of singer: JT Woodruff’s most resonant writing to date. He unravels themes of both physical and emotional distance from his wife and daughter in Ohio as well as personal identity as the front man of as one of the most iconic emo acts of the new millennium.
“When writing, I tend to dig through memories, both good and bad. In, Constant Dread, I was searching through one of my favorite tour memories. Warped Tour 2017, in the tour bus village. One of our favorite hardcore bands, Counterparts, was hosting karaoke. As I was standing there, Brendan hit play on Niki FM, and then threw me the microphone, and as I was singing my own song to a jury of my peers, I realized that I need to loosen up. This should be fun, not agony. When I thought about that moment, while laying [in] bed in the throes of the terror-filled gaze of the moonlight, I knew we needed to put Brendan in this song. And I’m so glad he said yes, because absolutely crushes it.”
Hawthorne Heights also have 2 shows scheduled in So.Cal. – Sunday, September 26th at The Wiltern in Los Angeles & Tuesday, September 28th at The House of Blues in Anaheim.
