In Hearts Wake Announce New Album ‘Incarnation’

In Hearts Wake have a new album on the horizon, with ‘Incarnation’ set to drop July 12 via UNFD.

News of the new album follows the recent announcement of long-time bassist and clean vocalist Kyle Erich leaving the band – news which was shared alongside their recent ‘Farewell’ single.

Speaking about the upcoming album and its creative concept, vocalist Jake Taylor shares: 

“INCARNATION is the shadow counterpart and sequel to the band’s debut album DIVINATION, with each song inspired by the meaning and ideals of a particular Major Arcana Tarot card.

“There are 22 Major Arcana Tarot cards in every deck and 11 tracks on each record, bringing the vision to completion 12 years later.

“But much like a coin with two sides, cards flipped upside down deliver the reversed meaning.

“Polarised in every way, INCARNATION explores the dark underbelly to mirror and stand diametrically opposite to DIVINATION.”

To announce the news, the band have today shared their fiery new single ‘Hollow Bone (plɹoʍ ǝɥʇ)’ – have a listen via the video below.

Speaking about the new single specifically, the band have further explained:

“Going through a death-of-sorts with Kyle having left the band, Hollow Bone became our reclamation anthem for the band to live on.

“Since high school we’ve given everything and we weren’t about to give up. Not yet…

“Picking up the microphone as a group, together we delivered a melodic chorus for the first time. We used actual bones as percussive instruments – symbolic of death’s transformation.

“This track acting as our stake in the ground. What would you die for?!”

As part of the album announcement, the band have also created an official Incarnation Tarot-themed website that fans can visit throughout the album rollout for access to behind-the-scenes, sneak peaks at new music, exclusive info, and ‘Incarnation’ announcements.
