Hawthorne Heights have premiered new video ‘Bad Frequencies‘. The track is taken from album Bad Frequencies which was released earlier this year, the band’s first full-length album since 2013 and first release on Pure Noise Records.
Speaking on the song and video forBad FrequenciessingerJT Woodruff says:”One of my favourite places on earth is the California desert. It’s a dream and a nightmare at the same time, which is why I love it. I wrote the lyrics to the song “Bad Frequencies” while waiting on Interstate 5 in traffic for 4 hours. My dream then turned into a nightmare. You just have to remember that the nightmare eventually goes away, and you always get back to where you need to be. Visually, much of the video’s vibe is an homage to some of our favourite music videos we grew up to in the 90’s. There is a certain amount of mystique to videos from that era that we absolutely love. Other visual inspirations include Twin Peaks and Black Mirror.”
The album was produced by Hawthorne Heights along withNick Ingram(Hotel Books, Capital House Studio), and mixed byCameron Webb(Grammy Winner, NOFX, Social Distortion). The band previously worked with Ingram on theHurtEP as well as Webb for “Push Me Away” which was released last summer ahead of their full run on the Vans Warped Tour.
