The fierce evolution of Australian metalcore collective In Hearts Wake continues today, with the group unveiling a brand new single “Orphan (lᴉʌǝp ǝɥʇ),” out now via UNFD.

It’s the second single manifested from In Hearts Wake’s upcoming sixth studio album, Incarnation, set for release on July 12. Pre-order it here.

“Orphan (lᴉʌǝp ǝɥʇ)”doles out goring barbarity, with breakneck drums, corrosive riffs, and guttural vocals all collectively drilling home notions of dread and despair.

 “‘Orphan’ is the fear, fury and frustration whilst watching the systemic serpent eat its own tail,” the band shares. “Writhing in the shadows of the human psyche and psychotic in nature. Stuck in my mind. Like and subscribe. Eating everything inside.”

The band continues. “Eco-grief induced anxiety. The rapid rise of tech, mono crops, and mass production. All in the name of growth and profit. Is it evolution or de-evolution? Who’s to say? Orphaned into a world that cannot raise us, we often feel like victims of ancestral fate… and yet somehow we chose this.”

In the lead up to the release of their new album, In Hearts Wake have dropped an official Incarnation website, which was Tarot-themed. Fans can visit throughout the album rollout for access to behind the scenes, sneak peaks at new music, exclusive info, and Incarnation announcements.

Recently appearing at UNIFY Off The Record in 2023 and wowing audiences across Australia with their Decade Of Divination tour last year, In Hearts Wake now turn their gaze to their new full-length Incarnation in 2024, and are also set to celebrate and farewell their journey to date with long-time bassist and vocalist KyleErich this September with a special Australian headline run.

Ahead of the Incarnation Australian Tour and in conjunction with announcing Erich’s departure, In Hearts Wake also recently shared a new single, “Farewell,” with the track fittingly bringing to a close the monumental chapter for Erich and In Hearts Wake.
