The HawtThorns

To Release New Album ‘Zero Gravity’

New Single Out Now

Nashville-based duo The HawtThorns have announced the release of their second single accompanied by a video for “Nothing But A Shadow,” The song is from their forthcoming long player Zero Gravity, out April 5, via Red Parlor Records. Duende Films directed and filmed the noir-western track and features actor/dancer Kendel Legore.

“Nothing But a Shadow’ came from living and creating in East Nashville, driving up the main drag. There is an old graveyard that has a crowded bus stop each morning. It made us think of all the people and families buried there or getting on the bus to their day jobs or school. The South is old compared to our California home, and there is a sense of haunted romance in every old building, field, or cemetery. We imagined a woman who, in crossing to the other side, struggled with the reality of her fate.”

K.P. HawtThorn

The upcoming third album from the duo (K.P. and Johnny HawtThorn) includes eleven songs recorded at The Studio Nashville, owned by The Wood Brothers. The record was recorded with some of Nashville’s most accomplished musicians. Musical director and bass player Ted Pecchio (Doyle Bramhall II, Oliver Wood) assembled the band for the sessions, which included Jano Rix (Wood Brothers) on all keys and Nick Buda (Kenny Chesney) on drums.
Zero Gravity promises to be a sonic trip into deeply felt personal experiences and abstract storytelling with The HawtThorn’s love for guitars apparent. The L.P. was recorded live, directly to two-inch tape.

K.P. and Johnny Hawthorn have had celebrated careers that started in L.A.’s singer-songwriter and alt-country communities. They’ve made hundreds of recordings heard on network and cable T.V. and film. KP co-founded L.A.’s CALICO while Johnny fronted his own band and played in legacy acts Toad the Wet Sprocket and Everclear.
In March, The HawtThorns will embark on a US Southwest tour, which touches down in Austin for a SXSW showcase at the storied Continental Club. Upon completing the Texas shows, they will tour the US Midwest, South and Northeast.
