Metalcore favourites Polaris are celebrating their 10th anniversary in style with a massive Australian tour.

Beginning with a hometown show in Sydney on Friday, March 3rd, they’ll then visit Brisbane, Hobart, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Perth throughout the rest of the month (see full dates below). Tickets for the tour go on sale this Thursday, January 19th at 10am local time.

Polaris are bringing some special guests along for the ride, with Void of Vision and Pridelands supporting them at all six shows.

“Where did the years go?! Apparently it’s been a whole decade since this handful of babyfaced kids from suburban Sydney finally assembled a lineup, recorded a demo, and stepped onto a stage for the first time as Polaris,” the band’s drummer, Daniel Furnari, says.

“Over the course of the ten years and four records that followed, we worked our way through every community hall, there or dive that would take us, sleeping on the floors of vans and share houses in the name of metalcore.

“Today, this thing we built together has taken us all around the world, giving us the chance to connect with so many incredible people that now all share a role in our story.

“Sometimes it feels like we’re just getting started, but as we reach this milestone it seems only right to take stock and reminisce a little about the journey so far. And what better way to do that than with an intimate retrospective tour? You’ve all made this possible and we can’t wait to celebrate our past, present and future with you around Australia this March!”
