In Hearts Wake @ UC Hub

Australian heavy music act In Hearts Wake are stoked to announce a massive national 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.The huge 27 date GREEN IS THE NEW BLACK 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.“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.GREEN IS THE NEW BLACK examines the music industry’s relationship to the environment. While the film chronicles the making of In Hearts Wake’s 100% carbon offset 2020 album Kaliyuga and their journey to becoming the first band to be a certified Carbon Neutral Organisation, it is 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.In Hearts Wake’s GREEN IS THE NEW BLACK 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.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. The band are also pleased to share that the video for Worldwide Suicide has been nominated for the first ever Environmental Music Prize, a new award that amplifies the voices of artists who inspire action for climate and conservation through inspiring music videos. In addition to the tour, In Hearts Wake today also announce that a special Pay Per View screening of GREEN IS THE NEW BLACK will take place on Tuesday 17 May, along with a live Q&A hosted by the band. There will be one tree planted for every admission. Tickets to the screening and the tour will be available from 9am AEST Wednesday 4 May via inheartswake.com.

The Terrys @ UC Hub

with special guestsThe Terrys debut album ’True Colour’ is here and they’re celebrating the only way they know how… with you! Featuring special guests Nerve (Adelaide, Hobart, Canberra) and Gold Fang (Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth). Since their share-house jam beginnings in mid-2020, The Terrys have consistently served up new tracks for fans (hear the earworms ‘Our Paradise’ and ‘Cost The Peace’), and accumulated over 15 Million streams across their catalogue to date. Bolstered by early triple j support, the spot of “Most Played” on Unearthed in 2021 and a Hottest 100 debut for ‘Our Paradise’ (#76), The Terrys have set the pace for a stunning debut full-length. Already, the band have lifted a wave of cutting edge singles from True Colour throughout 2022 including ‘IDK’, ‘Waiting For You’ and ‘Rolling Stone’ to much fanfare. Now with media and radio interest brewing and the Terrydactyls pining for more, True Colour is set to springboard Gerringong’s favourite larrikins to new heights. "Don't think. Just do. And go with your heart,” rhapsodises The Terrys on the secret sauce to their debut album… much could be said for your attitude to coming along to this tour. Don’t think. Just do. And go with your heart. Blood, sweat, tears and hell of a lot of froth has gone into this milestone in The Terrys career. Come celebrate being a part of this journey for what is set to be a tour, a record and a band to go down in history.With love - The Terrys"You know you’re in for a good time with The Terrys” - Triple J

Justice For The Damned @ UC Hub

Rising from the ashes of the chaos and wastes called the collective human experience of the last three years, Sydney metallic hardcore juggernaut Justice For The Damned return to the stages with their biggest headline tour to date this November, and bringing their friends Kublai Khan (USA), Sanction (USA), and Honest Crooks along on their aptly named Emerge From The Fire Australian Tour.Since day one, Justice For The Damned have been grinding their way through the Australian heavy scene to create a sound that no one can deny. The aggression in their music is unrivaled, and that hard work lead them to their ground breaking sophomore album Pain Is Power which landed itself in the top 20 on the ARIA album charts. Following on from the success of Pain Is Power, the band has toured relentless both home and overseas, sharing stages with Polaris, Thy Art Is Murder, and good friends Kublai Khan, who now join them on this run of shows in Australia.Kublai Khan turn hardships into hypnotic and heavy metalcore upheld by nimble metallic fury and pit splitting spirit. Grinding for over a decade, the Texas four piece put all their trials and tribulations into their latest album "Absolute". From the aptly titled 'Self Destruct' which shines a light on the truth that humanity is heading towards an end of their own doing, to "The Truest Love" that shines a light on the importance of responsibility in family, there is no stones left unturned, and the musical and lyrical violence makes these messages impossible to ignore.Sanction have developed a large underground following throughout the world with their ability to perfectly blend groove and heavy into a hardcore package that was exemplified on their most recent release “Broken In Refraction”. Honest Crooks, have stuck to their guns their entire career, and it has lead them to truly earning the title Hellsworth’s Heaviest. Their most recent single “Serpent Of Old” is a furious ride from start to finish, and has solidified the band’s sound as one people cannot ignore.Justice For The Damned’s Emerge From The Fire Australian tour promises to be the heaviest tour fans have ever experienced, and one whose echo will last long after the last breakdown has ended.
