IN HEARTS WAKE is one of Australia’s leading heavy music acts. The five-piece metalcore band released their debut album, Divination, in 2012. They toured and built a following with their follow up albums, Earthwalker (2014), Skydancer (2015) and Ark (2016). All 3 albums debuted in the Top 5 of the ARIA charts. The band took some time off to recharge, but now they’re back with their first all new music in three years.
Watch their new video below, then read on to learn how the band intends to do their part to save the planet!
From The IN HEARTS WAKE Press Release
Australian metalcore outfit and environmental awareness harbingers IN HEARTS WAKE are back with their first new music in three years. Known for inspiring change by using social/environmental justice and self-accountability as core themes throughout their lyrics, IN HEARTS WAKE’s new single, “Worldwide Suicide,” is their most direct and impassioned statement yet.
The jarring video begins with the intro segment, “Crisis,” which features a sample of Greta Thunberg’s address at the climate strike in NYC last year recorded by vocalist/front man Jake Taylor. The video depicts a house on fire with each room representing an ecosystem, and in those rooms a human from every stage of life is under serious threat causing the survival of humanity to face its greatest challenge yet–overcoming the inertia and dysfunction within ourselves to affect real change.
Its message of “ecocide is suicide” is a call for positive action and will see the band plant one tree for every 1,000 views it receives.
Watch the video, save the planet! Sounds like a great deal to me!
Cool stuff! Heavy! A timely theme, too. The band was recently scheduled to perform the Main Stage at Download Festival (AUS). Unfortunately, the festival was cancelled due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus. They’re pressing on, as we all must. It’s nice to see Australia fighting back in the face of the recent wildfires and this new biological threat. Cheers, guys!
