Steger, IL


The pop punk, emo quartet Hawthorne Heights made their way to Another Hole In The Wall on Thursday, July 12, 2012.  The band was on their Summer Of Hope Tour supporting their latest ep Hope which is the second installment in their trilogy of ep releases they have been working on.  The prior ep was titled Hate and released on August 23, 2011.  Hawthorne was on a month and a half long U.S. tour to support their latest release while bringing along Life On Repeat, Set It Off, Forever Came Calling, Failsafe, and Super PrimeLife On Repeat was only present on the tour from June 1-8 and Set It Off was on the tour from July 5-13.  Hawthorne Heights provided a well rounded and diverse set treating the fans to a multitude of hits spanning their many albums.  Hawthorne Heights consists of: JT Woodruff – guitar and vocals, Micah Carli – lead guitar and unclean vocals, Matt Ridenour – bass and backup vocals, and Eron Bucciarelli – drums.  The band held a smooth and calm presence for most of the evening on the stage, but was still extremely lively and upbeat in their performance.  Many fans had made the journey from all over Illinois and Northwest Indiana and they certainly were not disappointed with the multiple bands this evening.  Hawthorne Heights only had a few stops left on their U.S. tour after this show.  They are next heading to Japan for a small tour and then England and surrounding countries throughout the fall on their Autumn Of Hope Tour 2012.  Follow their official page and Facebook sites for latest news and tour information.
