Hawthorne Heights has left Wind-Up Records and will release a new EP on August 23rd with their own label, Cardboard Empire. More information here.

We’re going for a little bit of a larger concept with this. The first EP is titled Hate, and it’s trying to get out some of the emotions from our past dramas with Victory and dealing with the death of our bandmate, Casey [Calvert, who died in 2007]. A lot of these things, we never really got them off our chest. The last two albums didn’t really capture the emotion that was going on. For one reason or another, we held back a little bit. So, long-term, we’re hopefully going to continue being a little more truthful and more honest and not let things sit and eat away at us.
