HITTING No. 5 on the ARIA charts with their latest album Earthwalker, just behind the likes of Lily Allen, was a surprise for Byron Bay metalcore band In Hearts Wake.

It was the cherry on the cake for band members Jake Taylor, Ben Nairne, Eaven Dall, Caleb Burton, and Kyle Erich who enjoyed a huge year in 2013 and now 2014 is set to be even more successful.

In Hearts Wake completed national and international tours last year and finalised the production of Earthwalker which was released in May this year with amazing results.

"I don't think any of us really expected it to do that well," Erich said.

Their previous album, Divination, debuted at No. 27 and they had been aiming to surpass that mark with the release of Earthwalker.

Surpass it they did, by 22 spots.

"It's a funny situation. It's the one time you're ever put up against of different genres and pop's going to have much larger market than metal," Dall said.

"It's just a number, but it's really cool to see how you rank and where you sit. It's also that appreciation and acknowledgement of our fans," Taylor said.

And an acknowledgement of their hard work in the eight years since they formed.

In Hearts Wake will next week play the Byron Bay YAC as part of a massive line-up taking part in the Rise of Brotality tour through Australia and New Zealand.

The Byron Bay outfit are joined by US band The Ghost Inside, Aussie bands I Killed The Prom Queen and Hellions, and the UK's Bury Tomorrow.

Next month the band will head overseas again for a series of shows through Scotland and England.

Burton said that after a successful debut European tour, they're keen to go back and cement their fan base there.

Dall said they had been surprised by the reception they received in Europe when they toured last year with The Amity Affliction.

"When we went to Europe we weren't really expecting anyone to know who we were," Dall said.

"But when we got over there, at the first show in Germany, there was three or four hundred people there and we had a group of people up the front that knew all the words. It was like a YAC show almost.

"They could barely speak to us afterwards but they knew all the words in English."

In Hearts Wake play the Byron YAC Tuesday 6pm with The Ghost Inside, I Killed The Prom Queen, Bury Tomorrow, and Hellions.
