Hawthorne Heights continue delivering emotional music of the highest calibre with their latest offering.
Hawthorne Heights have shared a new song, and they continue to embody the intensity and emotion of alternative music perfectly.
The track is called ‘Dandelions’ and is an existential, raw and rallying piece of dark emo, full of massive riffs and callous screams.

Vocalist JT Woodruff had this to say about it:
“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.

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.“
