Polaris Announce Debut Album, ‘The Mortal Coil’

Polaris hitting another big milestone. 

Arriving on November 3rd via Resist Records, Polaris will unleash their long-awaited debut LP, ‘The Mortal Coil‘.

In an email sent out to fans last night who had signed up to the band’s mailing list, pre-order options were given to them a little early than the wider public was today as a sincere thank you for the continual support. (You can pre-order this forthcoming record from Resist Records over here). Polaris also included a personal message in that aforementioned email about their journey so far, saying:

When we started this band back in 2012, creating a full-length album seemed like a distant dream. Five years, two EPs and 12 laps around Australia later, we’re excited to announce we will be releasing our debut full length “The Mortal Coil” on November 3.

While fans were already quite stoked on their previous single, the wicked ‘Consume‘ – which was also the very first Polaris track that I’ve been genuinely excited about – ‘The Remedy‘ is the latest cut from this newly announced record, which was recorded in the band’s self-made studio in Mollymook, NSW. As for this new song’s mirrored, silhouette visuals, bassist and clean vocalist, Jake Steinhauser, explains that:

“Filming for The Remedy took place over a single afternoon at mine and Daniels old high school, who were kind enough to let us use their green screen. Unlike previous videos we’ve done, we all shot our takes individually which posed as somewhat of a challenge without other people playing around us to feed off of. We chose to work with the guys at Red Boss again as we felt they suited the project and were really able to guide and expand on the idea that we had.”

The Remedy‘ is a rather lyrically introspective piece (“Don’t let it bury me/We call this therapy” and “Black clouds hover low like a curse” anyone? ) but one that also takes the Sydney band’s tight, riffing, metalcore sound to a far more solid extreme. Simply put, if this and ‘Consume‘ are indicative of what the remaining nine songs on ‘The Mortal Coil‘ will offer, then ‘The Guilt & The Grief‘ EP will be a distant memory!

      I actually reckon I’ll quite like this record, way more than the EP anyway. The two singles so far have been solid.

        …I can’t tell if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. Do you mean in terms of style or length or just cause they’re shit? Haha.

            Haha oh right! I was just curious is all. Yeah, I’m not really a fan of Music Feeds and some of their really click baity headlines but their reviews are fine – Emmy and David are solid writers and I don’t mind their reviews at all. Even if I don’t agree with their scores/opinions on a particular release.
