Promotion and release[edit]

It was announced early 2013 that the band signed deal with Red Entertainment and that a new album is in the works. They put their final EP from their Hate/Hope Trilogy on hold, so they can work on a new album. They financed the entire project via pledgemusic.[2] The album debuted at 118th place on the billboard 200.

Songs and singles released[edit]

  • On May 18, 2013 the first single "Golden Parachutes" was released.[3] The song impacted radio on May 28, 2013.[4]
  • On June 11, 2013 they released their second song "Taken By The Dark" which contains a heavier side including screams from Micah.[5]

Album title[edit]

The band explained: "We went in with a bunch of songs and came out with a concept album, the likes of which we’ve never attempted to undertake in the past. If you’re a long-time fan of Hawthorne Heights, you know we’ve been through a lot over the years. No matter how hard life gets or how many seemingly insurmountable odds you may encounter, everyone can get a fresh start. “ZERO” deals with these life issues against a dystopian, war-ravaged backdrop".[2]
