Hawthorne Heights
are back!

The band have released a new track that continues to refine their emotionally crippling sound more and more.

it's called 'Constant Dread' and sways between patient builds and all-out chaos beautifully, with downtrodden lyrics and harsh yells aplenty.

Oh, and there's also a savage appearance from Counterparts' Brendan Murphy.

Vocalist JT Woodruff had this to say about the track:

"When writing, I tend to dig through memories, both good and bad. In, Constant Dread, I was searching through one of my favorite tour memories. Warped Tour 2017, in the tour bus village. One of our favorite hardcore bands, Counterparts, was hosting karaoke. As I was standing there, Brendan hit play on Niki FM, and then threw me the microphone, and as I was singing my own song to a jury of my peers, I realized that I need to loosen up. This should be fun, not agony. When I thought about that moment, while laying bed in the throes of the terror-filled gaze of the moonlight, I knew we needed to put Brendan in this song. And I’m so glad he said yes, because absolutely crushes it."

Check it out below:

The track is taken from the band's upcoming new album 'The Rain Just Follows Me' which is set for release on September 10 via Pure Noise Records.
