Sydney metalcore outfit Polaris, on the back of the announcement of their sophomore EP The Guilt & The Grief, have dropped the single ‘Hold You Under’, featuring Marcus Bridge of Northlane. EP ‘The Guilt and the Grief’ is out January 29th. You can preorder it here
The gentle guitar intro slowly builds the suspense then bam you will find it hard to wait to hear this song live. Having Marcus Bridge from Northlane adds to the depth and contrast to “Hold you Under’. Bring on the album release!
Polaris are firing up and preparing to grab 2016 by the horns and hit the road with Stories, Belle Haven and Perspectives in February and March – which serves as the EP release tour. The release of this single ‘Hold You Under’ cements what Polaris are saying with this new EP. That they are destined for huge things and that they are not playing.
The Guilt & The Grief was written between May and August this year before the band stepped once again into STL Studios with producer Sonny Truelove(Young Lions, Prepared Like A Bride) to create the record, which was then mixed and mastered by Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland (August Burns Red, I The Breather, Texas In July).
‘Hold you Under’, features vocals from Marcus Bridge from Northlane – which got it’s radio premiere on Thursday December 10 2015 on triple j’s Home & Hosed with Dom Alessio.
Pre-orders are live now at iTunes and Physical Pre-Orders and bundles for the album are live now at http://polarisaus.bigcartel.com. Pre-orders are already stacking up ahead of the January 29 release date.
