“I can’t wait to be hitting the road around Australia this September for our new album Fatalism,” says Jamie Hails of Polaris.

“These are going to be some of our biggest headline shows to date and in venues I have dreamt about playing ever since I was a kid. We’re so damn excited to be joined by none other than our friends in August Burns Red, Kublai Khan TX and Currents while bringing along our biggest production to date. Get your tickets and we will see you at the show!“

Fear and its potent ability to divide and unite us lies at the beating core of the band’s third album Fatalism, officially due out on Friday 1 September via Resist Records in Australia and SharpTone Records for the rest of the world. Steeped in angst alongside underlying catharsis, an expanded thematic gaze and heavier sonic terrain, Fatalism organically builds on the bleak imagery and hard-hitting soundscapes permeating Polaris’s previous release, 2020’s The Death of Me, while also galvanizing the Sydney five-piece’s trademark blend of melodic metalcore, lush post rock, electronic flourishes and beyond.

Polaris have already firmly established their place as a fixture in the Australian heavy landscape via their first two albums, 2020’s ARIA Award-nominated The Death Of Me and 2017’s The Mortal Coil, which debuted in the Australian Top 10.

Having been awarded a laundry list of accolades along with sold-out headline tours of Australia and previous tours across the globe, including most recently performing at Good Things Festival in 2022 alongside headliners Bring Me The Horizon, 2023 will also see POLARIS head over to Europe this June for multiple European summer festival appearances, and a string of headline shows supported by Chelsea Grin and Kublai Khan TX.
