Hawthorne Heights

Born in the Ohio emo scene, the band went through various lineups. Making a name for themselves largely through a self-distributed demo and self-booked tours, they earned a spot playing with punk icons the Descendents. Depite the tragic death of guitarist Casey Calvert, they maintained an unyielding touring schedule, which helped grow their fan base and make their releases, such as Skeletons, successful. Their albums have repeatedly appeared on the Billboard Independent and Billboard 200 charts, among others.
