Polar Bear Club Brisbane show added

Official press release:
When a band releases an album that is named one of the years essentials and “absolutely spectacular post-hardcore” by Alternative Press, said band has a lot to live up to.  That was 2008, and now Polar Bear Club has returned with an album that is even more groundbreaking than their last: Chasing Hamburg.  Effortlessly seaming together the sounds of 90s punk and hardcore – akin to bands like Lifetime and Hot Water Music – with a refreshingly 2000s style and their own personal twist, Polar Bear Club will no doubt be one of this years breakout bands and live up to the additional Most Anticipated of 2009 tag they received from AP. 


Back in 2005, the members of Polar Bear Club got together as a side project to their various bands with little to no intention of being a full time band.  Spread out amongst states and time zones on the US east coast, the band released the EP The Redder The Better before 2008’s critically acclaimed Sometimes Things Just Disappear on Red Leader Records.


Poised to be one of 2009s greatest successes, Polar Bear Club will spend the remainder of 2009 crisscrossing the US and will start their global assault in January 2010 with their first tour of Australia. 
Joining them will be Perth’s Break Even and Brisbane’s The Gifthorse.
