In Hearts Wake Share Details For New Concept Album “Incarnation”, Debut “Hollow Bone” Video


Australian metalcore band In Hearts Wake have now shared the full details for sixth full-length album, “Incarnation“. Earlier this week the band announced a July 12th release date for that effort through UNFD. This conceptual outing follows the departure of bassist/vocalist Kyle Erich from the lineup.

Vocalist Jake Taylor had the following to say about the record and its inspiration:

“‘Incarnation‘ is the shadow counterpart and sequel to the band’s debut album ‘Divination“, with each song inspired by the meaning and ideals of a particular Major Arcana Tarot card. There are 22 Major Arcana Tarot cards in every deck and 11 tracks on each record, bringing the vision to completion 12 years later.

But much like a coin with two sides, cards flipped upside down deliver the reversed meaning. Polarized in every way, ‘Incarnation‘ explores the dark underbelly to mirror and stand diametrically opposite to ‘Divination‘.”

A video for the song “Hollow Bone (plɹoʍ ǝɥʇ)” went up today (April 24th) alongside the album’s details. Taylor said of that track and its unconventional percussion choice:

“Going through a death-of-sorts with Kyle having left the band, ‘Hollow Bone‘ became our reclamation anthem for the band to live on. Since high school we’ve given everything and we weren’t about to give up. Not yet…

Picking up the microphone as a group together for the first time we delivered a melodic chorus. We used actual bones as percussive instruments – symbolic of death’s transformation. This track acting as our stake in the ground. What would you die for?!”
