Hawthorne Heights have announced that they have inked a deal with the Sony/RED distributed label Red River Entertainment, and have been in the studio recording a new album with producer Brian Virtue (30 Seconds to Mars, Chevelle, Audioslave), which will be released this summer, right in time for this year’s Warped Tour. Here’s what the band had to say:
“We’re really excited to be working with Red River and Sony RED! Our biggest successes have been done while working with some of the same people at RED. Life as an independent artist had its bonuses, but there were a lot of things that were simply unattainable during that period of our career – working with a top tier producer such as Brian Virtue and the exposure that RED distribution offers, being two prime examples. Our new album is going to take a lot of people by surprise and with the team we have in place, we’ve never been as hopeful for the future as we are right now!”
Bob Frank, Red River Entertainment founder, adds, “Hawthorne Heights is in a great place as a band and we believe their biggest successes are ahead of them.”
The band last released HOPE on June 5th, 2012 via Cardboard Empire.
