In Hearts Wake Reveal Trailer For Their New Documentary About The Music Industry And The Enviroment
Australian heavy music act In Hearts Wake have released the official trailer for their feature length documentary 'Green Is The New Black'.
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' holds a mirror up to the music industry and its relationship to the environment.
'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 examine their processes and search for more environmentally sustainable options, inspiring new possibilities for an entire industry begin to emerge.
Through conversations with creatives, experts and professionals including Damon Gameau (2040, That Sugar Film), Tamara Smith (Greens Member for Parliament), AY Young (United Nations Young Leader), Jessica Ducrou (Splendour in the Grass Festival Co-founder), Heidi Lennfer (FEAT Artists) and Luke Logemann (UNFD Records), In Hearts Wake uncover unsettling truths, face human adversity and discover inspiring solutions for a new earth-aligned way forward.
Formed in Byron Bay in 2006, In Hearts Wake are one of Australia’s leading heavy music acts. Their fiercely loyal following has been forged from relentless world touring, passionate ecological advocacy and hard-hitting, melodic-driven music. The band have received four top-5 records, earned an ARIA nomination for Best Hard Rock album, 110 million digital streams and over 100,000 records sold worldwide. They are the only known band to be registered as a Carbon Neutral Organisation.
“When we first started this band, we just wanted to tour the world and play music, but the further we travelled the more it hit home. We were unintentionally endangering our own future. The world we knew was changing fast and we realised we had to change with it.”
Jake Taylor, vocalist In Hearts Wake / Producer and Co-Director Green Is The New Black.
