In Hearts Wake Announce New Album Ark & Reveal New Single
Happy days, In Hearts Wake fans! The melodic metalcore act have announced their new album, Ark, with the reveal of their new single Passage airing on Monday night on triple j's Good Nights.
With their four album, they're looking to inspire change, with their album acting as an ode to our ocean planet, attempting to draw attention to the serious crisis the planet is currently facing. The band aren't just dropping an album and hoping to influence change, however. No, they're taking action by partnering up with Tangaroa Blue to launch the We Are Waterborne: An In Hearts Wake Initiative, which will lead a series of waterway clean-ups in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and in their hometown of Byron Bay. With marine debris one of the major environmental issues worldwide, In Hearts Wake are calling upon their fans to help our planet and join them in these clean-ups, as well as encouraging fans to form their own crews to tackle local problem waterways. The band are planning to take the initiative global with a series of clean-ups in the works for future overseas tours.
Frontman Jake Taylor says:
“No matter what side of the world we live on, water connects us all. 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.”
A new album from a talented band that is also looking to help the environment? That's a yes please from us.
