Dayton, Ohio natives Hawthorne Heights are back with their first release on Pure Noise Records, “Bad Frequencies,” out now. After 14 years, Hawthorne Heights — JT Woodruff (vocals, cuitar), Mark McMillon (guitar, backing vocals), Matt Ridenour (bass, backing vocals), Chris Popadak (drums) — are still delivering monumental albums and maintaining their DIY mentality, while remaining dedicated to their longtime fans. Both their releases, The Silence in Black and White, and If Only You Were Lonely, received Gold certifications, as well as their single “Saying Sorry.”
Says Woodruff, “It's easy to stay inspired if you keep a level head. To last a decade you have to have strong 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.”
Says Woodruff, “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.”
