Northlane and In Hearts Wake are just about as big as it gets in Australian metalcore right now. The announcement that they will both embark on a joint Equinox national tour, music to our ears.
In 2015 Northlane’s third studio album Node confirmed the band’s heavyweight status, landing them a #1 on the Aria Chart. Close behind was In Hearts Wake with their album Skydancer making its way to #2. The Aria awards were a similar affair, with Northlane taking home the goods, and In Hearts Wake hot on their tale with the nomination.
The two heavy-hitting live acts, now both at the height of their powers, have long been great mates hitting the road together for the first time in 2011 with the Discoveries Australian tour.
With the prospect for a follow up now a reality in 2016, each group couldn’t be happier, explains Jake Taylor of In Hearts Wake. “As our paths have crossed over the years the timing is finally right to embark on a co-headline tour that we’ve dreamt up together.
“It’s hard to think that it all started in a ghetto garage many years ago and here we are now.”
Providing support will be Canberra’s Hands Like Houses, and Melbourne’s Ocean Grove. It’s a local collaboration on a scale quite unlike anything we’ve seen before.
