Polaris Announce Biggest National Tour To Date, With The Devil Wears Prada & More

Sydney five-piece Polaris have announced a brand new national tour which will see them perform around the country with support from the likes of The Devil Wears Prada and Gideon later this year.

The new Spring tour follows the metalcore outfit’s recent national tour in support of debut album The Mortal Coil, and will hit venues in Perth, Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne this November.

With The Devil Wears Prada and Gideon supporting along the way, Melbourne band Thornhill are also performing at all shows, except Perth.

“These shows are going to be the biggest headline shows we have ever had and to say I’m excited is a huge understatement with The Devil Wears Prada being my all-time favourite band you can bet you’ll be seeing me front and centre in the mosh every night of this huge run,” says Polaris vocalist Jamie Hails.

The Devil Wears Prada will be touring behind their sixth full-length album Transit Blues, while Gideon are pushing their 2017 album Cold. Catch all the tour dates and ticket details, below.

The Devil Wears Prada were scheduled to tour Australia in 2017, but eventually cancelled their tour and confused Aussie fans by replacing the cancelled tour with new shows in the US.

Meanwhile, Polaris have also released a music video for The Mortal Coil cut ‘Dusk To Day’ today, and drummer Daniel Furnari says it’s the band’s “most ambitious clip in terms of concept and execution”.

“Lyrically, ‘Dusk To Day’ deals with insomnia, which is something that a couple of members of the band have really struggled with,” he says.

“It’s a song about that awful consuming anxiety that can comes from being awake when everyone else is at peace, and the way that can play tricks on the mind when it’s allowed to wander. After tossing around a few ideas we realised that to get this right we would have to tap into a feeling of paranoia, so we started to develop our own little psychological thriller short-film.”
