Hawthorne Heights Cover Ramones ‘Pet Sematary’ & Announce New EP

In homage to supporting pop-punk kings New Found Glory on their From The Screen To Your Stereo To Your Town tour, emo legends Hawthorne Heights decided to join in on the fun and have just dropped a cover of ‘Pet Sematary’ by The Ramones. Perfectly timing the release for the Halloween season.

“What is better than October and The RamonesHawthorne Heights has been notoriously obtuse when it comes to doing cover songs. For some reason, The Ramones are the great equalizer for us.” shares vocalist JT Woodruff.

“We all love the Stephen King book, and watched the movie growing up, so it was a true no brainer for us. The significance is that it got us to play covers together after all of these years, and it opened our eyes to how fun it can be. In honour of one of the best months of the year, one of the best punk bands of all time, and the best storyteller that has ever existed: we give you our version of Pet Sematary. We’ve never down strummed so much guitar in our lives.”

Accompanying this incredible cover is the news that Hawthorne Heights will be releasing a collection of B-Sides and Rarities titled Lost Frequencies, out 8th November via Pure Noise RecordsThe band also dropped another sparkling new single and music video for ‘Hard To Breathe’.
