Ahead of their highly anticipated new album ‘Lost Frequencies,’ Hawthorne Heights have us shook with the double drop of ‘Machinehead’ and ‘The Perfect Way To Fall Apart’
If you think ‘Machinehead’ sounds familiar you would be correct! It is a cover from the iconic 90s band Bush. Hawthorne Heights have managed to easily do justice to this cover while keeping its roots, but putting their own twist on it.
‘When we were all in high school, Bush came outta nowhere. Every freakin song was a smash hit! They also play that song at Cincinnati Bengals games, right after Ohio Is For Lovers, so we felt it was appropriate.‘ Says JT Woodruff when discussing why they chose this track.
‘The Perfect Way To Fall Apart’ may not be a new track from the band BUT this acoustic version is. Beautifully stripped back this easy listen keeps the core of why I love this song while adding a raw edginess.
Speaking about this version JT says ‘ We’ve always been a fan of alternate versions. Since we were working on covers, we thought why not cover ourselves a little bit. It’s nice to hear what songs sound like in different arrangements, because all good songs stand alone in any style‘
The album which is a collection of B-Sides and rarities is due out November 8th . You can pre-order ‘Lost Frequencies’ here
