Hawthorne Heights and Siiickbrain dropped reimagined version of ‘Ohio Is For Lovers’

Hawthorne Heights teamed up with rising experimental artist Siiickbrain for a re-worked version of ‘Ohio Is For Lovers.’ Today’s release takes listeners through a darker side of the iconic track and is paired with a horror-inspired music video co-directed by Siiickbrain.

“This collaboration means so much to me for so many reasons. A few years ago I was listening and singing ‘Ohio Is For Lovers’ in the car and discovered for the first time that I could scream,” Siiickbrain shares. “Ever since then, Hawthorne Heights has been a huge part of the music that I create and a tremendous influence to me. The concept of the music video was heavily influenced by my love for horror films. I wanted to portray a dark, distorted take on the original song, and how sometimes you feel like you can’t live without someone.”

Hawthorne Heights’ frontman JT Woodruff shares “It’s a truly treasured experience when you get to step into someone else’s world, as they step into yours. When approached by Siiickbrain, I was flattered that a younger generation of artists had even heard of us, and to work together was divine madness. I’ve never thought of my music as having a dark side, so it’s super wild to see and hear it like this”
