Hawthorne Heights release new single ‘The Rain Just Follows Me’

Hawthorne Heights have unveiled the emotive title track from their forthcoming eighth full-length album ‘The Rain Just Follows Me.’

“I really wanted to name this album after those lyrics,” shares singer JT Woodruff on ‘The Rain Just Follows Me.’ “It perfectly described what I’ve been going through. During the day, everything seems totally fine, but when I lay down and turn out the lights, my world comes crashing down. If this happens on tour or at home, I usually just think of the coast. I think of the way I feel, watching pelicans on the pier. And usually, everything will stabilize, but for some reason, nothing was working. When you’re gone for months out of the year, it starts to feel normal. Your entire family and circle of friends have to rearrange their lives to stay connected to yours. And as much as this seems like a woe is me, touring band sob story, it really isn’t about that at all. It’s about how our society has taught us to work ourselves to exhaustion, and at the end of day, our prize is an early grave.”

‘The Rain Just Follows Me,’ which will be released digitally on September 10th, 2021 via Pure Noise Records, was produced by Grammy-winner Cameron Webb (Alkaline Trio, NOFX). The 11 tracks stand as some of Woodruff’s most resonant writing to date, as he unravels themes of both physical and emotional distance from his wife and daughter in Ohio as well as personal identity as the frontman of as one of the most iconic emo acts of the new millennium.
