US Post-Hardcore pioneers, Hawthorne Heights will return to Australia for shows across August and September! This time around they will be playing their landmark first two albums, 2004’s The Silence in Black and White and 2006’s If Only You Were Lonely in full. Both of them!!
With huge hits such as Ohio Is For Lovers, Niki FM, Silver Bullet, Saying Sorry, Where Can I Stab Myself in the Ears? These two albums have been instrumental in shaping the sound of modern hardcore. The albums feature the bands rhythm guitarist Casey Calvert who tragically passed away in 2007, but who’s memory and influence lives on in the songs.
Keyboards and upbeat melodies mixed with screaming backing vocals and big pop punk choruses, Hawthorne Height’s defined a genre!
Making this tour one of epic proportions, are some seriously special guests!
River Oaks is a project from Silverstein main man Shane Told. A true one man solo project, Shane plays every instrument on his debut EP which he will be playing along with select Silverstein tracks!
Acoustically driven, emotionally laid bare with Shane’s signature pop punk sensibilities.
