Brisbane based melodic hardcore band, Wildheart are following up the successful release of their third and latest five track EP, ‘We Are’. ‘We Are’ was released in August 2018 to wide acclaim, and Wildheart have shown no signs of slowing their momentum as they push their music to its limit and aim to take it across the country.
Wildheart have just announced that following up to their QLD Weekender – consisting of shows in Toowoomba, the Gold Coast, and Brisbane (where they will be performing at the 2019 Mountain Goat Valley Crawl alongside acts such as Raave Tapes, and Between You and Me).
Shortly after, Wildheart will be following up with a brief NSW run, playing three charity shows in support of The Black Dog Foundation in Woolongong, Sydney, and Central Coast; having not appeared outside of QLD since 2017 when they headlined their own DIY-tour.
Released on August 31st, ‘We Are’ peaked at #2 on the iTunes Metal chart, and #39 on the overall iTunes chart. Prior to its official release, their first single We Are premiered on KillYourStereo.com being cited as a ‘fresher, larger re-introduction to the(ir) sound and intent…’, achieving #6 on the Triple J Unearthed Metal chart, as well as #3 on the Indigenous chart to rave reviews from curators. ‘We Are’ is the follow-up release to several singles release since their DIY-recorded and produced, freshman EP ‘A Thousand Days’, in early 2015. Wildheart have slowly yet surely carved themselves a position as a heavy, emotional outfit that demands the attention of punters through their relentless live performances. Wildheart performed BIGSOUND 2018; have seen regular playtime across various well-known platforms such as Triple-J‘s b-category rotation and Spotify’s ‘Homegrown and Heavy’ playlist; have played alongside heavyweight acts including Casey (UK), Listener (US), Belle Haven, Bare Bones, Young Lions, Deadlights, and Dregg; as well as undertaking several independent east-coast tours.
Wildheart are proud advocates of an open conversation surrounding mental health and
discrimination, and have performed in support of multiple not-for-profit organisations.
