For One Low Price Fans Can See the Band and Get a Copy of
Their New Album – Skeletons – Out June 1, 2010!
New York, NY – On June 3, 2010 the critically-acclaimed and platinum selling band Hawthorne Heights (JT Woodruff, Micah Carli, Matt Ridenour, Eron Bucciarelli) will begin their “Get a Ticket, Get an Album” summer tour. In an effort to show their thanks to fans, and in light of the current economic state, the band has come up with a low ticket price that will include both entry into their show and a copy of Skeletons. When fans purchase a ticket, they will also receive a download of the new album which hits stores on June 1, 2010. On top of the 13 tracks, ticket purchasers will also receive 2 additional, exclusive tracks, “Gravestones” (an acoustic version) and “Boulevard”. Tickets for all dates will go on sale beginning May 7, 2010.
The band will begin the tour in Lansing, MI at the Loft and travel across the U.S. hitting Austin, Orlando, Denver and Atlanta along the way. Hawthorne Heights will be performing fan favorites as well as songs off Skeletons including their first single “Nervous Breakdown” which hit modern rock and digital retailers in April. The 13-track album was produced by Howard Benson (Seether, Three Days Grace, Daughtry, My Chemical Romance) at his Bay 7 studios in Valley Village, CA.
Hawthorne Heights formed in Dayton, Ohio in 2001 and built a strong following across the U.S. via repeated self-booked tours. The band was one of the first visionary acts to embrace social networking as a powerful tool in building an audience, and, to this day, continues to maintain a level of accessibility to the fans via these platforms. Their debut album, The Silence In Black And White, was certified platinum for sales of 1,000,000 copies by the RIAA. The follow-up, If Only You Were Lonely, had an impressive debut at #3 on the Billboard 200 in 2006, going on to sell over a half-million copies and receiving gold certification. Hawthorne Heights recorded a third, and final album, for Victory Records in August 2008 titled Fragile Future. The band signed to Wind-up in February 2009.
