Hawthorne Heights Share New Video Ahead of UK Tour

Ohio’s post-hardcore emo rock band Hawthorne Heights released their album Bad Frequencies earlier this year via Pure Noise Records. It had been a long at times legal potholed road from their last album, Zero, released back in 2013. Back with the new album and having completed a marathon run on the last Vans Warped Tour, Hawthorne Heights will next month be heading to the UK for a headlining tour. 

As a taster to their dates here in the UK Hawthorne Heights has shared a new video for Bad Frequencies, the title track from their 6th studio album, which was released in April.

Singer JT Woodruff explained some more about the track and video: “One of my favourite places on earth is the California desert. It’s a dream and a nightmare at the same time, which is why I love it. I wrote the lyrics to the song Bad Frequencies while waiting on Interstate 5 in traffic for 4 hours. My dream then turned into a nightmare. You just have to remember that the nightmare eventually goes away, and you always get back to where you need to be. Visually, much of the video’s vibe is a homage to some of our favourite music videos we grew up to in the 90’s. There is a certain amount of mystique to videos from that era that we absolutely love. Other visual inspirations include Twin Peaks and Black Mirror.”

If the video is a sampler if the mood Hawthorne Heights can deliver it bodes well for an immersive experience on their UK dates this October including a date at Nottingham’s Rock City.
