HAWTHORNE HEIGHTS has premiered a new track and accompanying music video for “Just Another Ghost”. The track is the second single from the band’s upcoming album, “Bad Frequencies”, which is due out April 27 via Pure Noise Records.
HAWTHORNE HEIGHTS singer and guitarist JT Woodruff states: “‘Just Another Ghost’ is a song about floating through life, and the anxiety that comes with the feeling that life is passing you by. One second you are having the time of your life, and the next second you feel all alone. Your mood can go from euphoria to panic, until you eventually feel you aren’t even there, or you are invisible.”
Directed by Benny Gagliardi, the video features the band performing in two extremely different locations to create the feeling of being in different worlds. Woodruff says: “We wanted to have a video that matched that feeling and emotion, which is why we shot in two entirely different locations. We put flyers on the wall at Slidebar from life-changing shows that each member of HH personally went to when we were growing up. Then to capture the sadness and loneliness, we drove out to Slab City, California in a location that was perfectly isolation, like in a dream. We wanted it to look like two entirely different worlds, because that’s how life can feel sometimes. Anxiety is powerful, and we wanted to capture that raw feeling.”
“Bad Frequencies” was produced by HAWTHORNE HEIGHTS along with Nick Ingram, and mixed by Cameron Webb (NOFX, SOCIAL DISTORTION). The band previously worked with Ingram on the “Hurt” EP as well as Webb for “Push Me Away” which was released last summer ahead of their full run on the Vans Warped Tour.
