Thanks to our good friends at Blackstar Amplification , we had the pleasure of hanging out with Hawthorne Heights at Vans Warped Tour. As band took the stage to a crowd of screaming fans. It was an absolutely beautiful summer night. The band began playing their opening song as the sun set in the distance behind the crowd.
