Stick to Your Guns:
Metalcore/screamo outfit Stick to Your Guns formed in 2003 under the leadership of vocalist Jesse Barnett in Orange County, California. Drawing comparisons to such names as Comeback Kid and Protest the Hero, the band was soon noticed by Sumerian Records honcho Ash Avildsen, who put the already buzzworthy band on a live showcase. The band signed a deal with the label soon after. The band's first album, For What It's Worth, was released in 2007, a year that Stick to Your Guns would spend on the road, consolidating their skills and building on their early successes. The band eventually moved over to indie metal label Century Media, which released the follow-up full-length Comes from the Heart in the spring of 2008. Lineup changes and a move to Sumerian Records preceded the band's third studio long-player, 2010's acclaimed Hope Division, and in 2012 they released the fiery Diamond, which featured the Occupy Wall Street movement-supporting single «Bringing You Down (A New World Overthrow).» Arriving in 2015, the John Feldmann-produced Disobedient would be their last outing for Sumerian, as 2016 saw the group join up with Pure Noise for the EP Better Ash Than Dust.
Hawthorne Heights return to form with Hurt, the long awaited third EP in their Hate/Hope/Hurt trilogy. Hurt not only shines with elements rooted in their classic sound, but also showcases a maturity and level of confidence that can only be honed after twelve years of being a band. Hurt is a collection of eight songs that celebrate looking back while boldly pushing forward.
Hawthorne Heights has spent most of the last year touring the world celebrating the ten year anniversary of their second (and certified Gold) album, If Only You Were Lonely. Feeling newly inspired and invigorated, the band has returned home to Ohio to write for a new full length with a planned 2017 release.
