Hawthorne Heights lose drummer

2014-06-19 by jslavos | 18 Comments
Drummer Eron Bucciarelli decided to leave Hawthorne Heights after 13 years of being in the band. He announced this decision through a tweet stating "I've had a blast w/@HawthorneHgts over the last 10 yrs, but its time to officially move-on. Very excited about @MPAnalytics and @brandery!". Bucciarelli will pursue his new start up venture called Musicplay Analytics.

This announcement comes before the band embarks on a full North American tour titled "Hope Revolution Tour" with co-headliners Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. This tour is the continuation of the Ten Year Anniversary World Tour for Hawthorne Heights' first album - The Silence In Black And White, with the band playing the album in it's entirety across all dates.

Singer/guitarist JT Woodruff stated that "while we wish Eron the best of luck in his new company that we have watched him work very diligently on, we are eager and excited to play The Silence In Black and White for our longtime fans. It will be a different experience for everyone, including us, to not see Eron back there, but luckily we have another friend, Chris Popadak, who has also been touring with us for years. It is a simple example of a great opportunity, yet an inopportune time, as the program directly coincides with the tour. We look forward to continued friendships, extended traveling, remembering the past 10 years, and sharing the energy and passion of The Silence In Black and White with our longtime fans!".

Bucciarelli's replacement - Chris "Poppy" Popadak - is currently the drummer of Dayton based band The Story Changes, and will join band mate Mark McMillion ( lead vocals/guitar in The Story Changes), who coincidentally plays guitar also for Hawthorne Heights.

You know what pisses me off most about this band? They play 12 songs without an encore when they're
headlining. Lazy bastards.

I actually called out the drummer on this as he was taking down his set. He pretended he didn't hear
me. Tool.

That's weird. I saw them a month back in Prague (tiny club show, 50-60 people), and they were really energetic and played a cool set. I also got to speak with them afterwards and I was really blown away by how humble and down to earth they seemed - and how much they enjoyed being on stage (for a platinum selling band to play every night in front of max 100 people it's really a miracle they are still going on, no one seems to care about them nowadays

^ lol

To be fair, I've met the singer and the guitarist, and they were both really nice people.

They're still lame for playing 12 songs at a headlining show.
