In Hearts Wake have released a cinematic video for their new song “Badlands” today. The track is featured on the band’s album, Skydancer, that’s scheduled for release on May 5th via Rise Records. Pre-orders for the record are available now at http://inheartswake.merchnow.com/.
Co-directed by Scott Hansen and In Hearts Wake vocalist Jake Taylor and written by Taylor, the “Badlands” is a beautifully shot film set in the Wild West. The outlaw story follows a greedy quest to recover stolen gold only to have it eventually returned to the earth in which it came from.
“"Badlands” is a modernised western tale of the ever classic and symbolic feud between cowboys & Indians,” says Taylor. “Written from the perspective of native outlaws: ‘we will make a stand’ against the invading miners who destroy the earth only for personal gain. IHW recently saw this first-hand whilst driving through the invasive Texan oil wells that drain the planet 24/7 in search of profit.”
