Announcement from Hawthorne Heights: "Last February we embarked on our first ever full band, all acoustic tour…just for fun. The idea was to hear our songs in a different way for our own sanity, and to give our die hard fans a different type of show.

It was an experience that was so special and powerful that we wanted to stay on the road for once. We actually didn't want to come home, which is hard to imagine when you tour so often."
