Hawthorne Heights are proving that emo is well and truly back.

Rock Sound is excited to be hosting the world premiere for the brand new Hawthorne Heights video for 'Bad Frequencies'.

Speaking about how 'Bad Frequencies' came to be, Hawthorne Heights frontman JT Woofruff has shared “One of my favorite 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," He continued "Visually, much of the video’s vibe is an homage to some of our favorite 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.” 

Musically, the song captures that same contrast with the first half set over a dream like landscape of shimmery tones and JT’s smooth vocals before letting loose a wall of distortion and guitarist Mark McMillon’s screams.

The lads in Hawthorne Heights made the video themselves earlier this year, filmed in Asbury Park, NJ. JT has said "We have always loved the city and the rich musical history in the area along with seeing the beach in the winter inspired us to film this video while there. Much of the video was filmed at Outpost City, a wonderful place in Asbury Park set up for touring bands to relax, recharge, and be creative.  Many thanks to them for the hospitality."

Nice one.

With all that said- check out the premiere for Hawthorne Heights' new video 'Bad Frequencies' below:
