They say time flies when youâ€™re having fun and itâ€™s been a hella epic ride for Sydney metalcore titans POLARIS in the last decade. So, what better way to celebrate than to throw a 10 Year Anniversary Australian tour with their friends VOID OF VISION and PRIDELANDS in tow.
Kicking off on March 3 in their hometown of Sydney and making their way across the country to Perth, the 10 Year Anniversary venues are paying homage to the debut album cycle where they sold these venues out across ‘The Mortal Coil’ and ‘Spring’ tours in 2017.
â€œWhere did the years go?! Apparently, itâ€™s been a whole decade ago since this handful of babyfaced kids from suburban Sydney finally assembled a line-up, recorded a demo and stepped onto a stage for the first time as Polarisâ€ says Polaris drummer, Daniel Furnari. He adds, â€œOver the course of the ten years and four records that followed, we worked our way through every community hall, theatre or dive that would take us, sleeping on the floors of vans and sharehouses in the name of metalcore. Today, this thing we built together has taken us all around the world, giving us the chance to connect with so many incredible people that now all share a role in our story. Sometimes it feels like weâ€™re just getting started, but as we reach this milestone it seems only right to take stock and reminisce a little about the journey so far. And what better way to do that than with an intimate retrospective tour?! Weâ€™ll be reaching right back to our early EPs and beyond to pull out some deep cuts and old faves for the first (and probably last!) time in a long while. Joining us will be our old and very dear friends in Void of Vision and Pridelands, to add some new memories to the many that weâ€™ve already shared over the years. If you were with us back in the day at Blacktown or Sutherland, at Wrangler or the Lab, at Hot Damn or Enigma, this one is for you. Youâ€™ve all made this possible and we canâ€™t wait to celebrate our past, present and future with you around Australia this March!â€
In 2017, POLARIS released ‘The Mortal Coil’, their debut album which debuted in the top 10 ARIA charts and received an ARIA-nomination. It was followed up with 2021â€™s, ARIA-nominated, #3 ARIA Album chart record, ‘The Death Of Me’. They have been awarded a laundry list of accolades including triple jâ€™s Feature Album with both albums, album of the year mentions in end of year lists and have toured across the globe.
It’s been an incredible journey for POLARIS with countless sold-out headline tours of Australia, supporting Architects and Parkway Drive around the country; five runs throughout Europe (including a series of arena shows supporting Architects, a slew of high-profile summer festival spots, Northlane and their first headline tour); four separate US tours; not to mention performing at the 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 unleashing the final instalment of the beloved ‘Chronicles’ EP series, VOID OF VISION have not only left people longing for more, but in tandem increased curiosity and demand for what could come next. In the midst of a UK tour with Holding Absence and an appearance at the inaugural Knotfest Australia on the horizon, the band are poised to return home to continue to take the country by storm.
Melbourne-based, PRIDELANDS kicked off 2022 with the release of their highly anticipated debut studio album, ‘Light Bends’ which had glowing reviews and landed them an appearance at Unify Forever in 2022 and a national regional tour with In Hearts Wake.
Set those alarm clocks and get those party vibes ready as this is a celebration you wonâ€™t want to miss. There is limited capacity and there will be no additional nights added. Donâ€™t say we didnâ€™t warn ya.
