Hawthorne Heights Fights Lonely-ness
Hawthorne Heights is still recovering from the death of their touring mate, John Holohan of Bayside, in a tour van accident on Halloween. But even as the tour continues after a brief hiatus, Hawthorne Heights is forging ahead with their nearly completed second album If Only You Were Lonely. HH drummer Eron Bucciarelli told Billboard.com that the new album is “a little bit more mature. The transitions in songs are smoother and they sound more natural.” If Only You Were Lonely is set for a February 28 release. Bucciarelli says that the new album also takes cues from acoustic versions of songs from Hawthorne Heights debut, The Silence in Black and White. Hawthorne Heights is currently headlining Victory Records Never Sleep Again Tour, and the band has been including the new song, “This is Who We Are,” in their tour sets. HH is considering a UK tour in early 2006 before they open for Fall Out Boy in the spring. Hawthorne Heights will play Oklahoma City, OK, tonight with Silverstein and Aiden. The surviving members of Bayside have yet to rejoin the tour, but will be back starting with the November 16 date in St. Petersburg, Florida.
