In Hearts Wake Unveil Green Is The New Black Documentary 

Green Is The New Black Documentary

We all know that In Hearts Wake are on a mission to save the planet and we’re going to get a glimpse of their efforts with the upcoming documentary Green Is The New Black.

The feature length documentary tells the story of the band’s journey to not only make their 100% carbon off-set album Kaliyuga, but their mission to become a certified Carbon Neutral Organisation. On top of that, the film goes back into IHW‘s history, showcasing how they’ve always been a forward-thinking, environmentally friendly act that is more than just brutal screams and breakdowns.

On today’s news, vocalist Jake Taylor (who is also Producer and Co-Director) revealed: 

“When we first started this band, we just wanted to tour the world and play music, but the further we travelled the more it hit home. We were unintentionally endangering our own future. The world we knew was changing fast and we realised we had to change with it.”

As In Hearts Wake reflect on their business processes, they searched for more environmentally sustainable options and in the process have started inspiring new possibilities for the entire music industry to adapt to, and kickstart a movement bigger than anticipated.

Green is the New Black is a carbon off-set documentary that captures the twists and turns of the band’s urgent mission to stop at nothing as they face bushfires and an unprecedented global pandemic throughout the album’s creation. Through conversation with creatives, experts and professionals such as Damon Gameau (2040, That Sugar Film), Tamara Smith (Greens Member for Parliament), AY Young (United Nations Young Leader), Jess Ducrou (Splendour In The Grass Festival co-founder), Heidi Lennfer (Cloud Control and FEAT Artists), and Luke Logemann (UNFD Records), join In Hearts Wake as they uncover unsettling truths, face human adversity and discover inspiring solutions for a new earth-aligned way forward for the music industry and its fans.

Green Is The New Black will screen at Bangalow Film Festival on April 12, with 100% of ticket sales to be donated to local charities directly assisting the Northern Rivers flood recovery. It’ll also be played in Palace Cinemas around Australia as well as special screenings in Los Angeles, Toronto and London.
