The cards are well and truly in our favour in 2023, with Australian heavy weights In Hearts Wake revealing the Decade of Divination Tour, an extra-special run of shows this April and May celebrating the album that started it all back in 2012. Hitting stages this Autumn around the country and along for the ride will be American hardcore punks Stray From The Path, and local legends The Gloom In The Corner and Diamond Construct.
Releasing their game-changing debut album Divination back in 2012, the tarot-inspired 11 tracks from In Hearts Wake a decade ago would prove a winning hand for the Byron Bay-based metalcore icons. Praised for its memorable breakdowns, melodic hooks, taut execution and a sea of features, including Parkway Drive‘s Winston McCall and former Northlane vocalist Adrian Fitipaldes, Divination remains both a fan-favourite and a vessel to capture future fans in one unforgettable package. All killer, no filler and a watershed moment for the band themselves, Divination peaked at #27 on the ARIA charts, setting the stage for a horde of headline shows, international tours and appearances at Soundwave Festival and beyond for In Hearts Wake.
“I guess in some way, it was always on the cards! Excited to finally play this album front to back as well as other hits!!” shares the band of the upcoming Decade of Divination Tour. “Come celebrate the album that paved the way for our future. Who better to join us than our friends in Stray From The Path, The Gloom In The Corner and Diamond Construct. This tour will only happen once.”
New York hardcore heroes Stray From The Path formed at the turn of the century, boasting the ferocious spirit of Rage Against The Machine alongside socially-conscious lyricism and an unwavering dedication to grooves, technicality and razor-sharp riffs. With previous live appearances under their belts alongside Architects, Every Time I Die, Underoath, Comeback Kid and many more, and a new album Euthanasia up their sleeves, Stray From The Path never stray from what they do best in a live setting, and 2023 is set to deliver even more uncompromising and thunderous sets.
Melbourne’s finest purveyors of “cinema-core”, The Gloom In The Corner‘s deliciously dark star continues to rise. Coming off the back of their biggest year to date as a band, 2022 saw The Gloom In The Corner unleash a brand new album, the meticulously crafted Trinity, alongside appearances at Good Things Festival, a guest host on triple j’s The Racket and clocking over 2.6 million streams on Spotify. Hell hath no fury like a band in their prime, and a live show from The Gloom In The Corner is something to strap into and prepare for the ride of your life.
Balancing aggression with fresh and complex modernity, Diamond Construct draw inspiration from the likes of Northlane, Architects and Meshuggah; but with their own unique spin. Hailing from Taree in New South Wales, Diamond Construct splice metalcore, djent and EDM wizardry, with their 2020 single Psychosis claiming just over 930K streams on Spotify. Never sonically stagnant and boasting an electrifying live set, Diamond Construct recently joined Void Of Vision for a ten-date Australian tour, alongside The Beautiful Monument.
