Post-hardcore band Hawthorne Heights played at Merriweather Post Pavilion on Sunday, July 16, as part of Vans Warped Tour. Paivi snapped some pix of their performance.
JT Woodruff (vocals, rhythm guitar), Matt Ridenour (bass guitar) Mark McMillon (lead guitar), and Chris Popadak (drums) are working on a new album due out this year. Their latest album Zero saw the band with a different guitarist and drummer in its 2013 release via Red Entertainment. The band called the album a testament to making a fresh start after “seemingly insurmountable odds.” For sure, Hawthorne Heights had a particularly tough year in 2007 with label lawsuits and the death of original rhythm guitarist Casey Calvert (who passed away right before the band were scheduled to play 9:30 Club on Nov. 24, 2007).
Check out the official music video for “Push Me Away,” a new song by Hawthorne Heights released in May, on YouTube:
