A Message from JT of Hawthorne Heights

At Hawthorne Heights, we know only 2 things: hard work and touring, and they seem to go hand in hand.

To hype our new record, called Skeletons, we are stripping away all the extravagances of a normal Hawthorn Heights tour. Instead, we will be rocking out in small clubs across the US to bring our new music to our ridiculously loyal fans.

As far as gear, we are bringing the basics to keep everything streamlined and easy. Micah will be using a Variax® guitar, which will be a blessing due to its ability to transform on the fly. We also enlisted the help of the new Spider Valve™ MkII head to give us the extra boost we need onstage.

As far as effects are concerned, we are using M13 and M9 Stompbox Modelers. They are so easy to use, and take up no space at all…plus the built-in tuner is key.

From November 2 to December 20, 2009, Hawthorne Heights will be rocking all night and driving all day. The tour is coming to every region in the US, so drink some coffee and bring your energy to the Never Sleep Again Tour 2009. (Also performing will be Just Surrender, Punchline, Anarbor, Monty Are I, and Nightbeast.)

Always remember to support the music scene, and to keep it LOUD.

Love,

JT

    What kind of cab are you driving with the spider head and are you using the line out or a mic?

    hey arprtr, thanks for commenting. we sent your questions to JT. here’s his response:

    Micah has been using the Spider Valve with a Marshall cab most of the time. And it is always mic’d up. Haven’t tried to run it out of the back of the amp yet. Sounds killer on stage!
