Polaris Drop Video For Crushing New Single, “Regress”


Yesterday Sydney metalcore outfit Polaris scored one for the heavy-hitters with a lunchtime debut of their new single, “Regress”, on triple j’s airwaves. We’ve pegged the five-piece as one to watch for a while now, and for good reason: In the course of just three years, the band have managed a steady stream of EPs and snagged support slots alongside Born Of Osiris, Upon A Burning Body, In Hearts Wake and Buried In Verona.

Don’t be fooled by the track’s title; Polaris have done anything but regress with this monster of a single, brimming with precision guitars and seamlessly blending Jamie Hails’s almighty screams with rich cleans.

Tub-thumper Daniel Furnari said of the new track, “It seems that we live in a time where there is so much opportunity to create positive social change, to move the world forward, and yet it’s more apparent than ever that certain groups of people still value their own selfish, subjective ideas more than they value another person’s right to the pursuit of happiness and security. ‘Regress’ is a reflection on the fear of the world moving backwards, and a callout to those groups of people to be held accountable for the damage they cause.”

The band kick off a month of shows with Dream On Dreamer tonight in Canberra, with Sydney and Melbourne dates following this weekend. For those looking to sink their teeth into more new music from the boys, word on the street is that they’ll be announcing their forthcoming EP in December, along with pre-order details so you can tell Santa that you want some pummelling new metalcore for Christmas.

Check out the video for “Regress” below.
