Hawthorne Heights have released their honest and emotionally-driven new single Dandelions, out now via Pure Noise Records. This is the band’s first new music since the release of their 2021 album ‘The Rain Just Follows Me’.
Speaking about the new single front man JT Woodruff said: “During the summer, I was walking through the most desperate and desolate place I’ve ever been, which is Bombay Beach, located in the Salton Sea area of California. It is a perfect example of how we are quite literally ruining the world we live in, for our own temporary amusement. This place was once a vacation destination for Hollywood celebrities in the golden age of America, and we ruined it because of over fertilisation and chemical runoff. Now it is basically a cautionary tale of paradise being turned to dust. It made me realise how temporary we are, and how we must fight to protect the most beautiful parts of our world, and ourselves. I felt like it was a perfect metaphor for how we are all using the internet to ruin ourselves, and how the last few years have turned us against the ones we’ve loved, and turned us into something we never wanted to be. But hope is out there, and as we all work to rebuild and repair, we can’t help but feel like insignificant dandelion pods blowing in the breeze.”
Hawthorne Heights are currently embarking on a run of headline shows throughout the rest of October and November, including appearances. The band will also be on Heart Support Fest in February 2023 and Slam Dunk Festival in the UK in May 2023.
