Polar

Since their formation in the quintessential English City of Guildford in 2009, POLAR have been on a merciless & devastating pursuit of as many unsuspecting audiences as possible. POLAR supported such acts as Gallows, Trash Talk, This Is Hell, Feed The Rhino & TRC. POLAR left countless awestruck & many more battered when they instigated one of the largest & most destructive circle pits of Hevy Festival 2011, proving to all that they are one of the UK's most exciting live bands.

Since their formation in the quintessential English City of Guildford in 2009, POLAR have been on a merciless & devastating pursuit of as many unsuspecting audiences as possible. POLAR supported such acts as Gallows, Trash Talk, This Is Hell, Feed The Rhino & TRC. POLAR left countless awestruck & many more battered when they instigated one of the largest & most destructive circle pits of Hevy Festival 2011, proving to all that they are one of the UK's most exciting live bands.

In February of that same year, the band saw the release of their explosive & critically lauded debut EP 'This Polar Noise'. The band received BBC Radio 1 and Kerrang! radio airplay. POLAR also conquered our tellys with their terrifying music video 'Tonight Matthew I am The Batman' peaking at no.1 on the Scuzz Chart.

A little over a year since the release of their EP, POLAR were back with their debut album 'Iron Lungs' (released May 7th 2012). Recorded in January 2012 with Steve Sears & Tom Mitchener of Spy Catcher, 'Iron Lungs' was the fuel which to ignite their career and leave behind it a wake of exhausted exhilaration. Heavy & menacing melodies sustained the bands guttural & ferocious punk crash throughout. In May of this year, the band teamed up with Oli Sykes' (Bring Me The Horizon) clothing label Drop Dead to release their EP, "Inspire Create Destroy". No longer the scrappy hardcore-punk band from Surrey, the quintet had matured to draw influences from all corners of the alternative music world. A heightened sense of melody and rhythm enabled Polar to take a dramatic turn to the band's future. That year also saw them tour with While She Sleeps, Young Guns and Defeater.

The success of the campaign with Drop Dead provided for touring with Heights and 2 tours with the bands heroes, Funeral For A Friend before coming off the road to prepare for the 2nd full length album, "Shadowed By Vultures".

Touring for the band kicks off again Feb 2014 with a European Tour with Hundredth, Being As An Ocean and Counterparts. The boys better get their rest now as 2014 - is set to be another year on the road for the UK's most exciting band. « hide
