In the wake of all of this COVID-19 pandemic, bands have persevered and stuck to their guns with releasing the music they’ve been working hard on for all of us to appreciate, but none hits harder than what In Hearts Wake have been making for their latest album Kaliyuga which is set for release next week. The boys have been trying to tell us for years that we need to make changes in our lives to save the earth and now, they’re screaming harder to get their point across.
On this week’s episode we’re joined by frontman Jake Taylor who sheds light on the current climate crisis which he has been an advocate for, for a number of years now and how the window for change is closing. The best way to get his point out was to scream it on their new album, which also features a sample of globally recognised activist Greta Thunberg, which hits harder than expected.
Jake also talks about our misunderstood heavy music scene, getting off the grid and in touch with nature (something we should all do at some point) and the crossroads he and former girlfriend Georgia Flood reached in their relationship which resulted in one of Kaliyuga‘s most hard hitting tracks.
Podcast host Browny also takes time out to give you all a Mental Health Check with everything going on in the world, offering advice and playing helpful tracks from bands like The Devil Wears Prada, The Amity Affliction, Polaris and Make Them Suffer to get you motivated to make positive changes in your life.
There’s also New Music from Alpha Wolf, Spiritbox, Strange Fiction and Poppy + heaps more!
