New Music Video - Words By Hawk Nelson

Since Jason Dunn left Hawk Nelson a year ago the band has been moving on and working on a lot of new things including a new album. The new album titled Made is set to release on April 2nd. Hawk Nelson just recently released a new music video for the albums first single Words. Although the sound of this song isn't quite as much punk rock as HN's early albums, it still has a great sound. 

I am excited to see what HN's new album will be like, and I also want to make it to a concert to experience everything that band has to offer.
