JT Woodruff Discusses Hawthorne Heights Acoustic Tour

JT Woodruff from Hawthorne Heights was on the phone with Schwenker on Friends or Enemies Radio the other day talking about their acoustic tour. “To be honest with you, we reworked all these songs and it’s like kind of being reborn for two weeks,” JT said about the unplugged challenges. “We’ve never done these before like this. The other stuff we’ve been doing for so long, so it’s very easy and we know how to react to them and everything. This has been a lot bigger undertaking than we thought.” Listen via YouTube below.

Hawthorne Heights ‘Nervous Breakdown’ Video

Hawthorne Heights are out with the video to their new single ‘Nervous Breakdown’, the first release off the Dayton, Ohio rock band’s fourth album ‘Skeletons’, out now on Wind-up Records. “It’s kind of a different type of video for us,” drummer Eron Bucciarelli told The Deadbolt. “It’s all animated, almost stop motion animation. The skeletons are marionettes and that’s all I’ll say. But it’s really cool and a totally different look than anything we’ve done in the past in any of our videos. So we’re more excited about this video than anything we’ve done.” Watch it via Vevo below.
