US post-hardcore pioneers Hawthorne Heights will be returning to Australia this August and September, where they'll play their seminal first two albums, The Silence In Black And White and If Only You Were Lonely, in their entirety.
With huge hits such as Ohio Is For Lovers, Niki FM, Silver Bullet, Saying Sorry, and Where Can I Stab Myself in the Ears? the band were instrumental in shaping he sound of modern hardcore. Both albums feature the bands rhythm guitarist Casey Calvert who tragically passed away in 2007, but who’s memory and influence lives on in the songs.
Hawthorne Heights will be bringing along special guests River Oaks (Shane Told from Silverstein), Sienna Skies and Mark Rose (Spitalfield) for the ride.
River Oaks is a project from Silverstein main man Shane Told. A true one man solo project, Shane plays every instrument on his debut EP which he will be playing along with select Silverstein tracks!
Acoustically driven, emotionally laid bare with Shane’s signature pop punk sensibilities, you can check out the video for 'Let You Down' here.
One of Sydney’s longest running modern rock bands, Sienna Skies have become a staple in the local scene. With four full length albums and an EP under their belts,
the band have shared stages with practically everyone both local and international. They're the perfect appetiser for Hawthorne Heights fans!
Forming in 1998 and disbanding in 2007, Chicago’s Spitalfield achieved an enormous amount in their decade of existence.
The bands frontman, Mark Rose will be performing a full set of songs from the bands catalogue as an introduction to the massive night of retro post hardcore ahead!
