In Hearts Wake Finally Get Around To Making Connor Ward Their Official Drummer

In Hearts Wake Connor

It’s been a long time coming, but as Byron Bay envirocore unit In Hearts Wake set their sights on LP4, they’ve finally initiated touring drummer Connor Ward into the coveted status ‘official member’. Ward initially joined the band for their Skydancer touring cycle in 2015, following the departure of second skin-slapper Caleb Burton.

“We are over the moon to announce Conor as the fifth pillar of In Hearts Wake,” says frontman Jake Taylor. “Aside from being a total legend, Conor’s skills on the kit are incredibly intricate, solid and hard hitting. Next year is going to be a big one!”

“I’m very excited to finally be an official part of the band,” muses Ward. “The last 18 months have been a blur of experiences far exceeding my wildest expectations on what is possible playing music alongside four guys I now consider family, and it’s only just the beginning.”

In other In Hearts Wake news, the band have announced local supports for the Coffs Harbour and Sunshine Coast dates of their mid-December regional mini-tour. Local metalcore fusion unit The Heartless will open up the show in Coffs, with hardcore hellions Endless taking to the stage for the Sunshine Coast date.

All three shows – the third hitting In Hearts’ native Byron – will be joined by pop-punk powerhouse Columbus and lowkey-core crushers The Brave.
