In Hearts Wake are an ARIA-charting metalcore band based out of Byron Bay, Australia. Formed in 2006 by singer Jake Taylor, guitarists Ben Nairne and Eaven Dall, bassist Kyle Erich, and drummer Caleb Burton, the band debuted its sound, which merges atmospheric synths with melodic hardcore, in 2007 with the EP Into the Storm. The band followed up quickly with another EP, delivering The Getaway in 2008. In 2012 In Hearts Wake signed on with UNFD, which released their debut full-length, Divination, later that year. After a heavy bout of touring, the band returned to the studio to begin laying down tracks for their next full-length, Earthwalker, which arrived in 2014. Skydancer was released the following year, with Equinox (a split EP with Northlane) dropping in 2016, prior to drummer Conor Ward joining the band's lineup as a replacement for Caleb Burton late that year. In April 2017, the band issued the single "Warcry" in anticipation of the release of their fourth studio long-player, Ark, which arrived later that May.
