“We’re super excited to be heading back out to Regional parts of Australia this June / July. It’s been quite a few years since we’ve been to some of these places and we’re visiting some new towns also which is going to be really nice. I feel very lucky to be able to visit so many different areas of our beautiful country and I love being able to play our music to people that don’t often get tours coming through their towns,” says Polaris’ Jamie Hails.

The shows come ahead of their international jet-setting where they will be playing multiple international festivals and supporting Beartooth for an epic Europe and UK tour starting in October. Both tours continue their celebration of 2023’s full-length Fatalism which saw them skyrocket to number one on the ARIA charts, garnering nominations for Australian Album of the Year at the 2023 J Awards and for the 2023 Australian Music Prize.

Fatalism builds from their 2020 ARIA Award nominated The Death of Me, further leaning into the Sydney five-piece’s trademark blend of melodic metalcore, lush post rock, and electronic flourishes. It’s set to electrify the stages on the upcoming tour.

Tickets for the Polaris The Australis Tour ’24 are on-sale Friday 3 May via Destroy All Lines. Presale sign up is available here
