In Hearts WakeNZ Tour w/ Dead Dreamers & Overseer

In Hearts Wake:
In Hearts Wake are a band with a commitment to the bigger picture, striving to convey a message of environmentalism and conservation through their music and beyond. They released their debut album Divination in 2012, quickly gaining a loyal following. The album and accompanying live performances earned a reputation for explosive precision and a positive message. Divination debuted at #27 on the ARIA Charts, and saw the band perform relentlessly around Australia, as well as a European tour supporting The Amity Affliction, multiple headline tours and a national slot on the Soundwave 2014 lineup. In late 2013, they released the single ‘Skydancer’ in a pay-what- you-wish online system where all proceeds were donated to charities supporting indigenous Australians, Americans and Africans.
As the lyrics on ‘Mother’, Earthwalker’s closing track, explain; “Earthwalkers: you are a part of the Earth and the Earth is a part of you. The blood that courses through your veins is like the sap that courses through the trees. When the Earth in your bones returns to the ground, perhaps then you will remember that this land does not belong to you – it is you who belongs to this land.”

Dead Dreamers:
Since releasing their debut EP ‘This is an Awakening' in April 2012, Dead Dreamers have played a large number of shows, booking their own tours, in order to share their unique blend of atmospheric metal/hardcore throughout New Zealand.

They were fortunate enough to move into a large House on the outskirts of Hamilton, which they turned into a safe haven for traveling bands. The house, which was nick named 'Dreamers Estate,' then started to host large house shows where bands such as Stray from the Path, In Hearts Wake, Antagonist AD, Depths and many more played, packing out the house on various occasions.

After a significant line up change Dead Dreamers released their debut full length album ‘No Closure For Open Ends' recorded by Nathan Sowter (Blindspott, Antagonist AD, Kids in Space) and mixed/mastered by Pete Rutcho (The Ghost Inside, Bury Your Dead) on Shock Records in September 2013. The album shows a change in direction from the band's previous release, focusing on solid song writing and incorporating blend of mosh and melody. It's a release that translates well for energetic live performances, as well as being engaging on record.

After the relocation to Southampton, UK, for 9 months NCFOE was toured extensively throughout the UK and Europe to a fantastic response and eventually back to NZ with a string of shows mid 2014.

Overseer is a 5 piece metalcore band from Auckland, New Zealand. With the want for a modern sound Overseer set out to achieve just this, drawing influences from many different aspects of music and piecing it all together to create songs that are more representative of the band now, more than ever before.

After going through line-up changes, the band is heading in a solid direction, utilizing each member’s individual techniques, the writing process has finally paid off and Overseer sees themselves playing the music they originally set out to play.
Bringing inspiration from bands such as August Burns Red, Northlane, Architects, Counterparts and more, the songs all take on a form of their own by applying all these different aspects of music and ensuring there is an abundance of groove.

The future is vast for Overseer, with many opportunities arising to further push the band into the limelight and have the name “Overseer” recognised by many throughout the world.
