Ten years ago, seminal indie-rock band Hawthorne Heights released what remains one of its most talked about albums today in The Silence in Black and White. That landmark album sold the most first-week copies of any album in the history of Victory Records. ‘Ohio Is For Lovers’ and ‘Niki FM’, both singles from that album, went on to major success. They helped push the band to the edge of major mainstream success. The combined sales of the band’s singles and album in whole made The Silence in Black and White the model for almost every emo band that has come along since.
In celebration of the anniversary of that album’s release, the members of Hawthorne Heights have announced that the band will hit the road for a ten-year anniversary The Silence in Black and White World Tour. The first leg of the tour kicks off April 8th in Dublin, Ireland. Tour dates for the North American, Asian and Australian leg of the tour will be announced at a later date. As a thank you to its fans for their support, the band’s members also announced that it will perform The Silence in Black and White in its entirety at each show throughout its tour.
