Last night Casey Calvert, Hawthorne Height’s guitarist, passed away in his sleep. The cause of death is uncertain at this point. Here is a message from the band:

Today is probably the worst day ever. Its with our deepest regrets that we have to write this. Casey Calvert passed away in his sleep last night. We found out this afternoon before sound-check. We’ve spent the entire day trying to come to grips with this and figure out as much as possible. At this time we’re not sure what exactly happened. Just last night he was joking around with everyone before he went to bed. We can say with absolute certainty that he was not doing anything illegal. Please, out of respect to Casey and his family, don’t contribute or succumb to any gossip you may hear. We don’t want his memory to be tainted in the least. Casey was our best friend. He was quirky and awesome and there will truly be no others like him! His loss is unexplainable. As soon as we know more we will let you know.
Sincerely, Hawthorne Heights Eron, JT, Micah and Matt

Our deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of Casey. May he rest in peace.

In a recent post by Hawthorne Heights, a new tour is coming this fall. Here is the post:

Hey Lovers and Haters! We just wanted to drop you all a line, and officially announce our winter tour. Or WINTOUR… We, Hawthorne Heights, would like to welcome Escape The Fate, Amber Pacific, The AKA’s, and The Secret Handshake to the stage with us in November and December. If you are thinking…”That’s a weird line-up for a tour,” you are exactly right. We wanted a line-up that is not full of 5 bands that sound exactly the same. So at this tour, there is something for everyone…we hope.

We always like to help out other bands who we are friends with, or who we generally like to listen to…so that is how this line-up came together. We are planning alot of special things for this tour, so we would appreciate it if everyone could come and have fun, and keep music positive. Be on the lookout for more tour dates and details in the coming days. Thanks for your support of our band, the other bands, and music in general.

Love JT and Hawthorne Heights

No details have been released on a new record or what label they are with, if any…

Warped Tour 2007 was a hit and I was able to snap some shots of a few bands that I seen. Some of the quality of the pictures are poor, but this was due to the extreme heat and the amazingly aggressive crowd in Detroit, MI. So without further adeu here of some pictures:

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Eyes Set To Kill

Hometown: Chandler, AZ
Genre: Screamo, Rock, Acoustic
Sounds like: Meg & Dia, A Skylit Drive
Current Album: When Silence Is Broken The Night Is Torn
Myspace: myspace.com/eyessettokilll
Official Site:

It’s rare that I come by a band that immediately catches my attention. Eyes Set To Kill has done that for me. They’ve crossed so many popular music styles today that makes it their own. Gut tearing screams woven delicately with an angel’s voice couldn’t have sounded any better. Eyes Set To Kill has it. I recently found out that their lead vocalist, Lindsay, has left the band on personal matters. The band has started a search process for a new vocalist. I’m not sure how this is going to effect the quickly developing band. We can only wait and see. Either way they’re all talented musicians and I can’t wait to see where they could go. Check out tracks Darling and Liar In The Glass.

MUSIC VIDEO OF THE DAY: Valencia The Space Between

In 1977 today, the BBC announced a ban on the new Sex Pistols single ‘God Save The Queen’ saying its, “in gross bad taste”. And the IBA issued a warning to all radio stations saying the playing the single would be in breach of Section 4:1:A of the Broadcasting act. The single reached No.2 on the UK chart. A year before the Sex Pistols ban, The Who gave themselves a place in the Guinness book of Records as the loudest performance of a rock band at 120 decibels, when they played at Charlton Athletic Football ground.
