Axe-wielding Melbourne talent Harts, AKA Darren Harts, is about to take his 2016 to even greater heights.

On the back of an action packed 2016, which included multiple European dates and an iconic Splendour set, the multi-instrumentalist has announced the release of his forthcoming album Smoke Fire Hope Desire alongside a string of national dates.

Having burst onto the airwaves with Triple J favourites ‘Peculiar’ and the shred-heavy ‘Power’, the technically inimitable performer has rapidly surged to the top of the country’s most sought after live acts. Discussing the brand new LP, Harts has paid respects to his travels as a musician, championing this as one of the major influences of his new release. The multi-talent describes his recent influences stem from – “a lot of what I was seeing in the world around me – very current day issues, mixed with my own thoughts and challenges in my life.”

In celebration of Smoke Fire Hope Desire, Harts will dive into an eight date national tour, including a handful of Victorian dates in regional centres Ballarat and Geelong. The tour kicks off in Newcastle on September 16.
