Hawthorne Heights drummer Eron Bucciarelli has spoken to Rock Sound about the concept of new album 'Fragile Future' and how the band are coping following the tragic death of guitarist Casey Calvert in 2007:
''We as a society are in a dark place right now,'' he admits. ''I'm an optimist and I think we can make it out of it, JT [vocalist] is a pessimist and doesn't. The record is about us dealing with personal and societal stuff, in there also you have us coming to grips with the fact that we lost Casey. The record is about us learning to appreciate what we have as we know in an instant it can be taken from you.''
