After rising to prominence in 2004 with their debut The Silence In Black and White, Dayton-based outfit Hawthorne Heights witnessed a string of incidents to hamper the band’s progress. Following the untimely passing of guitarist Casey Calvert in 2007 and a departure from Victory Records after 2008’s Fragile Future, Hawthorne Heights returned to action earlier this year with a new album, Skeletons. The new album finds the band with a new label (Wind-Up Records) and a willingness to explore new musical territory. Hawthorne Heights will perform on Thursday, September 9 at the historic Southgate House, 24 E. Third St. in Newport, Kentucky. Also on the bill are The Story Changes and Harmon. Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 day of show. Admission is all ages. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Music begins at 8:30 p.m. For more information, visit www.HawthorneHeights.com.
