Hawthorne Heights have announced their eighth full-length album The Rain Just Follows Me, which will be released digitally on September 10, 2021 via Pure Noise Records.
The 11-track record, produced by Grammy-winner Cameron Webb (Alkaline Trio, NOFX, Megadeth), stands as some of Woodruff’s most resonant writing to date, as he unravels themes of both physical and emotional distance from his wife and daughter in Ohio as well as personal identity as the frontman of as one of the most iconic emo acts of the new millennium.
Singing lyrics like “I can feel my body breaking down, California sun. I can see the colors spiral out, nowhere left to run,” Woodruff tapped into the feeling of searching for something positive to cling to for lead single Constant Dread featuring labelmate Brendan Murphy of Counterparts.
