Hawthorne Heights :: Fragile Future

Hawthorne Heights jumped out as one of he most successful emo/screamo acts around with their platinum and gold CDs The Silence in Black and White and If Only You Were Lonely. Unfortunately, guitarist Casey Calvert passed away while they were touring at the end of last year, and the band was obviously hit hard. Now they’re doing their best to move on, with Casey along for the ride in spirit. Fragile Future is a solid album where they continue to dabble in sentimental lyrics and tight hooks, even though they might not be as killer as what the boys have dropped in the past. Hawthorne Heights fans will be satisfied, but not blown away.

Fun Facts

  • Hawthorne Heights had a legal dispute with Victory Records while producing this album.
  • The guys had custom Mountain Dew bottles produced as part of their marketing plan.
  • HH will be touring with Linkin Park’s Projekt Revolution Tour this summer.
  • Rescue Me is the band’s first single off of Fragile Future.
  • Hot Tracks

    Rescue Me, Disaster, Desperation.

    Jason Reeves :: The Magnificent Adventures of Heartache. (and Other Frightening Tales)

    You might not know Jason Reeves yet, but you definitely know his work. Jason co-wrote the massive hits Bubbly and Realize with Colby Caillat and now he’s stepping onto the scene with The Magnificent Adventures of Heartache (and Other Frightening Tales). The CD title is a mouthful, but the only thing you have to know about Jason is that he’s one seriously talented singer-songwriter. His lyrics are spot on, and his sensitive, soulful voice shines. With all of the over-produced music out there, it’s really nice to hear honest tracks like Someone Somewhere, You in a Song, and well, all of them really. This is a great debut from someone destined to make music that people love.

    Fun Facts

  • Jason’s album will be released digitally on August 12th and will be available in stores September 9th, 2008.
  • iTunes named Jason one of the Top Indie Singer-Songwriters of 2007.
  • Jason co-wrote a total of 10 tracks on Colbie Caillat’s breakthrough platinum album, CoCo.
  • Jason will start touring at the end of August, so check out his MySpace for a show near you.
  • Hot Tracks

    You in a Song, Photographs and Memories, Someone Somewhere, Reaching.
