POLARIS: Set to release sophomore record THE DEATH OF ME, unleash new single HYPERMANIA.
Aussie metalcore act POLARIS are set to release their second full-length THE DEATH OF ME due out on February 21st, 2020 via Resist/SharpTone Records. The highly-anticipated record is following up debut album The Mortal Coil, released in 2017 to critical acclaim granting the band a nomination for the 2018 ARIA Award for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Album.
The band of Jamie Hails, Jake Steinhauser, Rick Schneider, Ryan Siew and Daniel Furnari has been making waves since their debut, touring relentlessly across the globe and embarking three-sold out tours as headliners across Australia. The live scene has also welcomed the Australian powerhouse as opening acts for Architects, Parkway Drive and Northlane legends and also performing at the Download Festival and Unify Gathering. Polaris will be running their biggest headliner to date, The Death Of Me Australian Tour, supported by Wage War, Crystal Lake and Alpha Wolf in February 2020.
To give the world a taste of their upcoming sophomore effort, the five piece unleashed lead single MASOCHIST back in November 2019, followed by brand new track HYPERMANIA, just released via an official video. The song was debuted live in Australia on the Holy Hell Tour headlined by Architects last year.
The songs touches on mental health topics, such as anxiety, losing grip on reality, paranoia, mood swings, feeling on the verge of exploding. The lyrical delivery features a noisy, discordant and forceful flow. Polaris are breaking away from their standard songwriting depicting a scenario of controlled chaos and encompassing a level of full-throttled intensity battling against ferocious vocals. Polaris are caustic and armed to the teeth with tight and technical riffing, bludgeoning bass lines, also reflected on the 10 songs with a focus on screamed vocals and plenty of energy. Oh, and BREAKDOWNS.
