Message from the BandLast February we embarked on our first ever full band, all acoustic tour...just for fun. The idea was to hear our songs in a different way for our own sanity, and to give our die hard fans a different type of show. We only booked it for two weeks, because we had no idea how it would go for us, or our fans. What happened in those two weeks turned out to be more than we could have ever imagined. It was an experience that was so special and powerful that we wanted to stay on the road for once. We actually didn't want to come home, which is hard to imagine when you tour so often. So this year, we decided we had to do it again. We were even able to find the time to extend it an extra week and take it one step further. Elaborating on the theme "Stripped Down to the Bone", we have also decided to choose some venues that are very bare bones as well. We wanted to take this tour to some cities that don't get shows very often, as well as try to convert some smaller places into ALL AGES concert halls, at least just for a night. We also had the idea of trying to get some dates at tiny coffee shops, so we can help turn people on to the local brew of that area. We hope that our fans will respond to this tour again, and realize that we have kept ticket prices very low because we would like to support them as well. Sometimes everyday life can get you down...and a night of music can help you forget about it just for a few hours. Keep the scene positive...help music grow.

We will be selling LIMITED EDITION (and hand-numbered) Acoustic CDs EXCLUSIVELY on this tour. This release includes alternate versions of some of your favorite HH songs.

JT's solo stuff makes Hawthorne Heights look like the pile of shit it is. He should ditch this band and focus on his solo material.

That could have been said a lot nice! What did you get out of being so aggressive towards a band?! Did they like kill your cat? Sleep w your girlfriend?

Kind of a bummer that the Bloomington date is on Easter, but I'll still for sure be there. Also, everyone needs to see Mark Rose live.

Agreed - Mark Rose is awesome. This will be a great show. I wish it was coming to New England.

I feel like that venue has been getting a lot of good shows lately. I haven't made it up there yet though.

Ditch his best friends so he can have less fans, less fun, and make less money? Brilliant idea. But yeah, I'm definitely going to the barrington date.
