In Hearts Wake announce Green is the New Black national tour, heading to Ballarat, Geelong and Melbourne 

One of the country’s heaviest hitters In Hearts Wake are back with their Green is the New Black 2022 Australian tour.

Australian metalcore act In Hearts Wake have announced their huge Green is the New Black 2022 Australian tour in celebration of their new feature-length documentary, GREEN IS THE NEW BLACK, which has recently finished screening across the country and internationally alongside Earth Week 2022.

Conceived during the catastrophic bush fires of early 2020, filmed during the global pandemic and released as unprecedented floods have devastated the East coast of Australia, Green Is The New Black chronicles the making of In Hearts Wake’s 100% carbon offset 2020 album Kaliyuga and their journey to become a certified Carbon Neutral Organisation but it’s more than a film about one band and one album. As In Hearts Wake examines their processes and search for more environmentally sustainable options, inspiring new possibilities for an entire industry begin to emerge.

Celebrating the groundbreaking film, the huge 27 date national tour will be hitting cities and regional towns across Australia throughout August, September and October 2022 and will also feature some of the most exciting heavy acts in the country with support from RedHook, Pridelands and Banks Arcade.

Kicking off in Bunbury WA on Thursday, August 18, the band will hit up the likes of Perth, Fremantle, Darwin, Townsville, Cairns, Sydney, Canberra, Hobart, Adelaide, and Albury, among others, as well as a handful of dates across Victoria. In Hearts Wake will hit up Volta, Ballarat on Wednesday, October 5; Sooki Lounge, Belgrave on Thursday, October 6; The Wool Exchange, Geelong on Friday, October 7; and the Pier Bandroom, Frankston on Saturday, October 8.

In Hearts Wake’s tour will see the band perform brand new songs written and produced especially for the new film, along with fan favourites from the outfit’s impressive five-album discography.

“After not being able to tour properly for the past two years, it is our great pleasure to announce this huge national run of shows and return to towns that we love. We are also excited to take this new touring model out on the road and keep learning along the way. We cannot wait to celebrate Green Is The New Black with you!” said In Hearts Wake.

In true In Hearts Wake form, the band will offset 150% of the carbon emissions created from their touring operations, carefully calculating all emissions produced to cater for their transport, energy and consumption over the run of shows.
