"I think we just wanted to do something a little more ambitious. And we didn't want to do a full-length album, because our feelings change so rapidly. We realized the industry has changed--there's not a reason to release a full-length album these days. We wanted to have the creative freedom to change up the album or add some creative elements in that might not fit on [a single] album."
Hawthorne Heights last released Skeletons in 2010 via Windup, their lone album for the label.
Edit (2:45 p.m.): MTV has premiered a new track from the EP. You can check out "Four White Walls" here.
