Sydney metalcore outfit Polaris announce the details of their highly anticipated second studio album, The Death Of Me, out February 21, 2020, via Resist Records and their biggest headliner to date, The Death Of Me Australian Tour supported by Wage War, Crystal Lake and Alpha Wolf in February 2020. In the two years since The Mortal Coil, Polaris embarked on three sold-out headlining tours of Australia, as well as supporting Architects and Parkway Drive around the country; five runs throughout Europe (including a series of arena shows supporting Architects and a slew of high-profile summer festival spots); three separate US tours; not to mention performing at the Download Festival and Unify Gathering in Australia. Somewhere in there, the quintet found time to write The Death Of Me.
Wage War sharpen their patented hybrid of heavy pit-starting technicality and hummable hypnotic melodies with each subsequent evolution. The group’s 2015 debut, Blueprints, yielded multiple fan favourites with Alive cracking 12 million Spotify streams, The River exceeding 8 million and totaling nearly 50 million cumulative streams in two years. Wage War have toured alongside everyone from I Prevail and Of Mice & Men to Parkway Drive and A Day To Remember, logging countless miles on the road.
Japanese metalcore giants, Crystal Lake, have been touring the world non-stop in support of their latest album, Helix, with performances at major European and UK festivals including Download Festival, Resurrection Festival, Brutal Assault, Full Force, Nova Rock and more. They recently supported August Burns Red in the US followed by a support slot on Northlane and Erra’s co Headline tour while currently headlining rope’s premier branded club tour presented by Impericon, the Never Say Die tour. 2018 saw Melbourne’s Alpha Wolf come out swinging with their new single Black Mamba and then taking their solidified line up on the road. 2019 has been an even bigger year with the band announcing their signing to SharpTone Records for the world outside Australia, smashing their first European tour supporting Emmure, as well as playing the Impericon Festivals to crowds of up to 10,000 fans. Coming home, the band sold out their entire Australian headline run, including their hometown show at Stay Gold before heading straight back off to dominate shows across Asia.
