Byron Bay natives In Hearts Wake launched into critical and fan attention with their 2012 album Divination. After backing it up with Earthwalker (2014), Skydancer (2015) and their 2016 EP Equinox (a collaborative effort alongside label mates and compatriots Northlane), the band released their latest LP Ark in 2017.
Musically, this album pays homage to the past as much as it signals a bright new future for conscious heavy music; as a statement, Ark simultaneously lives within the lineage of Australian hardcore and lights the way forward beyond Southern skies. Debuting at #3 on the ARIA Album Chart, Ark further cemented In Hearts Wake’s status as one of the leading lights of melodic metalcore.
On the touring front, In Hearts Wake have looped the planet multiple times in the name of spreading their music as well as their ecological, humanitarian and urgent environmental message. The band have won new friends and fans from multiple US runs including Vans Warped Tour, and stints supporting Parkway Drive and August Burns Red. They have also taken the fight to European festivals such as Download, Graspop, Groezrock and Vainstream and successfully toured South East Asia, while continuing to become bigger than ever at home in Australia.
