Will Australia ever stop churning out world-class heavy acts? The answer is of course, a resounding no, with south-Sydney five-piece, POLARIS, following in the footsteps of the home-grown titans that came before them.
Three years of tireless touring, boundary pushing writing and independent recording saw POLARIS groom an army of supporters that’s already the envy of many in the heavy music realm, all of which culminated in the unveiling of »The Guilt & The Grief« in January of 2016. Whereas most self-released EPs register as a mere blip on the radar, POLARIS’ sophomore disc landed at #34 on the nation’s ARIA chart, as well as a head-turning #2 finish on the AIR polls!
Recognising the very public birth of our country’s next legitimate contender, labels quickly came knocking. Undeterred by the slew of offers in front of them, POLARIS continued to do what POLARIS does best, landing supports with fellow prog-metal enthusiasts NORTHLANE, Triple J darlings HELLIONS and finally PARKWAY DRIVE, who POLARIS can now proudly call label mates after signing on with the legendary Resist Records in Australia, ably supported by Cooking Vinyl Australia. In all other areas worldwide (except for New Zealand) they signed a contract with SharpTone Records.
Not content with the mere promise of new material, Resist and Cooking Vinyl immediately re-released »The Guilt & The Grief« in a limited 10” vinyl format, a rare treat for fans both old and new.
