Hawthorne Heights Announce 'Lost Frequencies' Compilation, Share New Single And Ramones Cover

Wednesday, 09 October 2019 Written by Helen Payne

Hawthorne Heights have announced a new compilation album.

‘Lost Frequencies’ will contain a selection of b-sides and rarities from across the post-hardcore band’s career, as well as new tracks and covers. It will arrive on November 8 via Pure Noise Records.

The record's first cut, Hard To Breathe, is a personal song that examines the idea of feeling like an outsider as a child in true, abrasive pop-punk spirit. Vocalist JT Woodruff openly explained: 

““I grew up in a home built on a fractured marriage, alcoholism, and a mother who loved us, but just didn't know how to articulate it into words.  We packed up all of our things and left my father behind in the winter of 1989, and never looked back. I didn't see him again, until he was in a coffin.

Hard To Breathe is the story of my youth from 1988-1992.  I spent a lot of time with quiet resentment, until I found my circle of friends, and felt outside love for the first time. While the story has some dark twists and turns, it's really just an articulation of some of the coldest nights of my life.”

The second track to be shared from the record is a cover of the Ramones’ Pet Sematary. Woodruff noted of the Halloween-inspired number:

“We all love the Stephen King book, and watched the movie growing up, so it was a true no brainer for us. The significance is that it got us to play covers together after all of these years, and it opened our eyes to how fun it can be.  In honor of one of the best months of the year, one of the best punk bands of all time, and the best storyteller that has ever existed: we give you our version of Pet Sematary. We've never down strummed so much guitar in our lives.”

Hawthorne Heights will return to the UK in February for a tour celebrating 15 years of their debut album, ‘The Silence In Black and White’, after supporting New Found Glory in North America this fall on their upcoming From The Screen To Your Stereo To Your Town Tour.
