The emo pop punk quartet Hawthorne Heights came to life in the summer of 2001. Originally called A Day in the Life, the Ohio-based band saw numerous lineup changes and shifting musical styles before settling on a permanent formation. Composed of drummer Chris Popadak, bassist Matt Ridenour, vocalist/guitar player J.T. Woodruff, and guitarists Casey Calvert, Hawthorne Heights built their fan base on a demo recording and a series of self-booked national tours that saw them sharing stages with the likes of From Autumn to Ashes and the Descendents. In 2003, they signed with Chicago label Victory Records, resulting in the 2004 release of their powerful full-length debut, The Silence in Black and White. While the bandmates relentlessly toured behind it, the album became Victory's highest-selling debut, and its lead single, "Ohio Is for Lovers," slowly invaded rock radio.
Hawthorne Heights return to form with Hurt in 2015, the long awaited third EP in their Hate/Hope/Hurt trilogy. Hurt not only shines with elements rooted in their classic sound, but also showcases a maturity and level of confidence that can only be honed after twelve years of being a band. Hurt is a collection of eight songs that celebrate looking back while boldly pushing forward.
Hawthorne Heights has spent most of the last year touring the world celebrating the ten year anniversary of their second (and certified Gold) album, If Only You Were Lonely. Feeling newly inspired and invigorated, the band has returned home to Ohio to write for a new full length with a planned 2017 release.
