News : Polaris announce November national tour with The Devil Wears Prada and Gideon

By on August 2, 2018

Sydney’s Polaris have quickly eclipsed their stance on the global metal scene, reaching a pinnacle among some of Australia’s most elite metalcore exports. They continue to carry themselves with a new national tour this November with special international guests The Devil Wears Prada and Gideon, plus direct from Melbourne, Thornhill.

Polaris vocalist, comments:

“This November we will be doing another lap around the country with The Devil Wears Prada, Gideon & Thornhill. 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 TDWP 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.”

Polaris recently released their new single “Dusk To Day” from their latest release The Mortal Coil, out now via Sharptone Records and Resist Records, respectively. Purchase your copy here.

Polaris recently finished up a massive sold out regional tour. That’s two back to back sold out tours in under four month with the other being the sold-out national ‘The Mortal Coil” headline tour in April.

The road, literally and figuratively, brought The Devil Wears Prada to their sixth full-length album Transit Blues. The band has embraced transition and change since their 2005 formation. After the pivotal breakout With Roots Above and Branches Below in 2009, the boys challenged the status quo and notched widespread critical acclaim, landing two consecutive Top 10 debuts on the Billboard Top 200 for the conceptual Zombie EP [2010] and Dead Throne [2011]. 2013’s 8:18 continued to expand their imprint on heavy music, while the intergalactic concept epic Space EP most recently blasted off to a #18 debut and praise from Alternative PressLoudwire, and more. Along the way, they’ve treaded countless miles on sold out headline tours, on the Vans Warped Tour multiple times, and in tow with Motörhead, Slayer, and Slipknot. Throughout the past decade-plus, the band charted a course to this juncture.

Alabama’s Gideon released their fourth album Cold (produced by Will Putney) in 2017, which had impressive debut spots on multiple Billboard Charts. They have toured and shared stages with artists such as Motionless In White, The Ghost Inside, Being As An Ocean and Chelsea Grin and have performed at festivals and tours such as Vans Warped Tour, Bamboozle, Heavy Montreal, South By So What and Never Say Never. Melbourne five-piece, Thornhill formed just shy of two years ago where Ethan McCann (guitar) and Jacob Charlton (vocals) met in math class and wrote the songs from their debut album, 13. They have toured with the likes of Hellions, Void of Vision, Northlane, Architects, In Hearts Wake and Parkway Drive. Their second EP, Butterfly sees the emerge from the chrysalis with six new songs that mark the next phase of their alternative metalcore evolution.

Polaris are touring North America throughout August with Gideon and in September with Parkway Drive before returning to Australia to finish the year off with their biggest headlining tour to date.
