With two additional albums under their belts, Hawthorne Heights recently released their fourth full-length, Skeletons, the first of this month. Sounding like a slightly mellower but just as intense version of their earlier recordings, the album resembles Armor for Sleep and Silverstein with vocalist JT Woodruff taking the reigns for the second album since Casey Calvert's accidental death in 2007.
Hawthorne Heights will be playing as a part of Roxy's Summer Music Series tonight with The Audition and The Story Changes tonight. Doors open at 9pm, and tickets are $11 (which includes a download code for their new CD).
See the video of their new single "Nervous Breakdown" after the jump.
