Hawthorn Heightsâ€™ fifth and upcoming album, Zero, tells the story of a dystopian world, just a few years into the future. Produced by Brian Virtue and with artwork by Jeff Chenault at Eleven07, the album is expected to take the bandâ€™s achievements to a whole new level and break their past record sales.
“Just to give everyone a bit of insight on the concept behind the record â€” Zero,Â at its core, is a story of good and evil,â€says drummer Eron Bucciarelli. “The story takes place in 2017 , or so they would like you to believe. In reality, the year is 2015. The people know little, they’re angry, and they know something isn’t right; that they’ve been lied to!â€
The album tells the story of a world deeply affected by war and totalitarian power through the eyes of the main character, “Baker”, each song based on a particular event. In summary, the album’s message is that no matter how hard life can hit you, there is always a possibility for a new start.
â€œTo delve deeper into the story, you’ll have to delve deeperÂ into Zero,â€ says Eron.
The album hits stores on June 25, 2013, but if you want to see Hawthorne Heights live in action, catch them at the 2013 Vans Warped Tour, where they will perform as stage headliners.
