In Hearts Wake Debut Brand New Track ‘W2HA’

In Hearts Wake are unstoppable at the moment following the release of their 2020 album Kaliyuga, and its consequent Kaliyuga Booster Pack featuring the Lochie Keogh (Alpha Wolf) collaboration ‘Dogma‘ and performances of tracks from the original album recorded Live at the Tivoli on their ill-fated Kaliyuga Tour which was postponed and rescheduled more times then one can remember.

But they’re back once again with new material that’s going to snap heads in the process with ‘W2HA‘ being released online, and it is a vibrant mesh of satanic riffs that’ll make you rethink everything you understood about the Hollywood and LA lifestyle. Frontman Jake Taylor explains:

“W2HA (Welcome to Hell A) was written during my time living in Los Angeles. I’d never experienced such a disturbing divide between wealth and poverty. I would often ride my bike through Venice Beach. There were the most insane Hollywood mansions and then one block away there would be tent villages full of desperation, crime and suffering. The separation was confusing, and the dog-eat-dog hustle mentality didn’t feel right. LA was a fragile man-made oasis built on a volatile desert. I experienced a 7.1 magnitude Earthquake and then weeks later Malibu went up in flames, raining ash all over the city. For me it was like living in some sort of concrete Hell.” 

Jake also mentioned during our interview at Full Tilt Festival the band were focusing their attention on Australia this year – taking their informative, must-watch documentary Green Is The New Black around the country and playing 27 shows alongside RedhookPridelands and Banks Arcade in the process.
