In Hearts Wake - www.facebook.com/inheartswake
Byron Bay's In Hearts Wake have been changing minds and lives since 2012, and with fourth album Ark they are looking to inspire change like never before. 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.
Ark is both a dynamic breath of fresh air for the metalcore genre as a whole and a treatise on one of the world's great impending issues. Today, in some parts of the world, water is already more expensive than oil, a trend that is spreading. In Hearts Wake - comprising frontman Jake Taylor, guitarists Ben Nairne and Eaven Dall, bassist Kyle Erich and drummer Conor Ward - are bringing this distressing issue to the world's attention.
"No matter what side of the world we live on, water connects us all," says Jake. "Every living thing, and every human being that ever was or will be, is born of water. The plasma in our blood is 92% water, our brains 75, and even our bones are 30 water. The same water that shapes our Earth is the same water within each of us. "
“This record is an ode to the Ark, that is our ocean planet. Just like a ship, if one part is compromised, all life is threatened. What happens on one side of the world affects the other. If we don’t work together to repair our home and restore the integrity of its natural resources, we will all go down with the ship. Since water is our lifeblood, it needs to be respected, protected, and acknowledged not only as a basic human right, but as an essential human need. "
