In Hearts Wake‘s forthcoming album Kaliyuga is going to be huge once released on August 7th via UNFD. We know this from the first two singles released already but now the band have revealed the guest singers they’ll have on the album including Georgia Flood, Massappeal‘s Randy Reimann and today, they’ve unleashed their song ‘Hellbringer‘ featuring a hilarious cameo by Polaris scream boy Jamie Hails!
The song/video takes a tongue-in-cheek at the world around us with the new norm of live-streamed shows due to COVID-19 whilst sending a big middle finger to those who call heavy music “loud noise and screaming” or the “devil’s music”, something which In Hearts Wake saw a lot of in their overseas travels when they were picketed by those hilarious groups with signs you see and judge immensely once vision pops up online of them.
On the new video, frontman Jake Taylor says:
At some of our American shows extremist groups have picketed outside, telling our fans that they’re ‘going to hell’. If only they knew just how positive the energy inside the venue was! Never judge a book by its cover. So rather than fight hate with hate, we decided to have some fun and lean into the metal stereotype. In 2020 with live streams becoming the new norm, we decided to stage our own hell-bent circus. We thought it would be funny to ask Jamie to dress up as a werewolf, turn me into a vampire and rain blood on the entire band. Guess Halloween came early this year. Thank you Blade.
