Sydney melodic metalcore outfit Polarishave released their highly anticipated third album Fatalism today and will embark on their biggest Australian headline tour next week supported by August Burns Red, Kublai Khan TX and Currents. Perth, Adelaide, Newcastle and Brisbane shows are all sold out with limited tickets still left for Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney.
Fear: humanity’s great divider, but also its most potent unifier. It’s this very notion that lies at the beating core of Polaris’s third album Fatalism; a record shaped by the sense of despair and dystopia that engulfed the world over the past few years, and the overwhelming accompanying sensation that we were powerless to change course.
Fatalism‘s singles Inhumane and Nightmare, Overflowemerged during the band’s 2022 writing session in the Blue Mountains, with the alt rock leanings beating at the core of the latest track organically emerging from some of Polaris‘ own personal listening repertoire.
Polarishave already firmly established their place as a fixture in the Australian heavy landscape via their first two albums, the ARIA-nominated The Death Of Me and 2017’s The Mortal Coil, which debuted in the Australian Top 10. They have been awarded a laundry list of accolades, album of the year mentions in end of year lists, sold-out countless headline tours of Australia and have toured across the globe. Not to mention performing at Download Festival, Unify Gathering in Australia, headlining Knight & Day Festival and most recently performing the 2022 Good Things Festival headlined by Bring Me The Horizon.
After their Australian headline tour, Polariswill return to the UK and Europe supporting While She Sleeps, performing at Aftershock 2023 and kicking off a North American headline run in October.
