New Review Update: Hawthorne Heights; Literature

It's Wednesday and it's time for some new reviews, baby! I'm handling today's update because reviews editor Bryne Yancey (known as "The Yance" to most of you) is in New York and is going to a Breaking Bad museum and then to see The Melvins later. I COULD CHOKE WITH RAGE AND ENVY.

Anyway, we've got some new reviews for your bright eyes and bushy tails:

First, my home-dawg and yours, Renaldo reviews Hawthorne Heights's new album, Zero. He sums it all up with "Cheesy? Yes. Does it work? The second half does. "

Then, that abstract, unknowable being called Joe Pelone turns the page on Literature's new seven inch Tie-Dye . He seems to enjoy it. Though, I wonder what bands with names like Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death and Slayer think when they see that bands have named themselves "Literature."
