In Hearts Wake Premiere New Song “Waterborne”

As a thank you to fans who signed on to contribute to In Hearts Wake and Tangaroa Blue’s initiative to clean-up polluted waterways in Australia, the band have shared the new track that inspired the campaign “Waterborne.” This song is from their new album “Ark,” which will be released on May 26. In Hearts Wake commented:

“We are overwhelmed by the amount of people who have already signed up to help us clean some of Australia’s most polluted waterways. If this goes well, we’d like to take it around the world. As a thank you to everyone ahead of our album coming out on Friday, here’s an early gift called ‘Waterborne’ which is the track that inspired the initiative. We have given Water a voice and the lyrics are written from its perspective.”

Metallica’s James Hetfield Comments On Chris Cornell’s Death

Metallica’s James Hetfield was recently interviewed by Mistress Carrie of WAAF, and opened up about the death of Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, etc.) You can find the full interview in the below video:

Hetfield said the following:

“Well, it does make you hug those around you, for sure—bandmates, family that’s out here, family at home. It makes you realize that, you know, there is a darkness that anyone and everyone can find and feel that they’re trapped in. And when you’re there—and at least I know the depth of my darkness at times—it is difficult when you’re in that space to even fathom that there’s someone there that can help you or has been through that before. Sometimes you’re at such a loss…

“I can’t… obviously can’t explain what he was going through, but we all have our darknesses… And check in with each other—check in with each other. Let each other know how you’re doing.”

“Yes, it’s a sad story, and there’s a lot of sad stories recently, especially in the grunge world, losing a lot of people. And for us, [losing] Lemmy and all of the things that have been happening in the last couple of years, it just makes us feel even more grateful to be out here doing what we’re doing.”
