Aussie metalcore heroes Northlane and In Hearts Wake have unveiled a surprise collaborative EP, entitled ‘Equinox’. The three track affair was written by and features all ten musicians across both bands, and you can read a statement from In Hearts Wake frontman Jake Taylor below:
‘The Equinox Tour and EP will be unlike no other. All 10 of us locked ourselves away so that we could weave together our creative efforts into this surprise twelve-minute EP odyssey. Working closely with so many passionate individuals has had its creative challenges and its beneficial learning curves. But like all things that are born to thrive, the Equinox journey has proven both abundant and powerful, showing what can be achieved when we work together. The Equinox EP is the testament of friendship and camaraderie that NL & IHW share, and the tour is still yet to come!
We’ve never attempted anything like the Equinox project before,” adds Northlane guitarist Josh Smith.“It’s quite a tall order to fuse two bands together to create art, but the whole process felt synergistic and I believe that the result is greater than the sum of the parts. The recorded part of the project was a monumental challenge for all of us to overcome, on a tight deadline nestled within hectic touring schedules, but it elevated our creativity far beyond the bounds we’d come to know and allowed us to share a common message of importance together.
The second part of the project, the live show will too be a historic escapade for Northlane and In Hearts Wake, an absolutely unmissable event that we just cannot wait for!’
