Dayton, Ohio natives Hawthorne Heights return to Beauty Bar Las Vegas this Friday, June 15. Pioneers of the emo, post-hardcore, and screamo scenes of the early 2000s, Hawthorne Heights continue to bring a high-energy show of familiar classics and new material to loyal fans all over the world.
After 14 years, Hawthorne Heights with JT Woodruff (Vocals, Guitar), Mark McMillon (Guitar, Backing Vocals), Matt Ridenour (Bass, Backing Vocals), and Chris Popadak (Drums) are still delivering monumental albums and maintaining their DIY mentality, while remaining dedicated to their longtime fans. Both of their albums, The Silence in Black and White, and If Only You Were Lonely, as well as their single “Saying Sorry,” received Gold certifications from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
“It’s easy to stay inspired if you keep a level head,” said Woodruff. “To last a decade you have to have dedicated fan support, strong relationships, and the ability to improvise. We have found that maintaining your core values will take you wherever you want to go in life.”
With the release of their new album Bad Frequencies, Hawthorne Heights hope to continue connecting with their unwavering fan base, and share music they’re truly proud of with a wider audience.
Woodruff added, “We’ve always tried to be a shining light for our fans. Some of them look to us as a sign of hope, and we appreciate that. We try to write songs from bad experiences in our lives, in a way that they can relate to their bad experiences. Hawthorne Heights has always taken a “we’re all in this together” approach, and we still stand by that.”
Tickets for Hawthorne Heights start at $18 and are available on TicketBat.com.
