An exciting day in Hawthorne Heights world today as the iconic band not only teamed up with Brendan Murphy of Counterpants for new single, ‘Constant Dread’, but also announced an upcoming album. It follows on from their 2018 release Bad Frequencies, which puts us right around the three-year mark since new music, and thirsting for more. Incapable of dissapointment, ‘Constant Dread’ is another track that ticks all the boxes for our sad hearts to be happy – even just for three minutes.
“When writing, I tend to dig through memories, both good and bad. In, Constant Dread, I was searching through one of my favorite tour memories. Warped Tour 2017, in the tour bus village. One of our favorite hardcore bands, Counterparts, was hosting karaoke. As I was standing there, Brendan hit play on Niki FM, and then threw me the microphone, and as I was singing my own song to a jury of my peers, I realized that I need to loosen up. This should be fun, not agony. When I thought about that moment, while laying bed in the throes of the terror-filled gaze of the moonlight, I knew we needed to put Brendan in this song. And I’m so glad he said yes, because absolutely crushes it,” says frontman JT Woodruff
