Released on 26th May 2017, In Hearts Wake’s fourth studio album Ark follows a triumphant tour supporting While She Sleeps and precedes an upcoming headline tour of the UK in October. Aside from the music itself, much can be said about the concept of the album. One thing that stands out, for example, are the punchy track titles. In keeping with their three previous full length albums, all twelve of the track titles on Ark are condensed into a single, concise word: keeping stylistic integrity intact, perhaps unlike some bands which spring to mind (looking at you, circa 2005 P!ATD and FOB!). Furthermore, much can be said for the message of the album; In Hearts Wake tell a flowing story through their new album of a need to look after our earth – the eponymous Ark – with environmentally politically charged lyrics throughout.
