Hawthorne Heights Release New Track, ‘Dandelions’

Hawthorne Heights have shared a new track, and it’s an intense one.

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.  It is a perfect example of how we are quite literally ruining the world we live in, for our own temporary amusement.  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.
