When it came time to make their second album, The Death Of Me, Sydney metalcore outfit Polaris knew they had a tall order
on their hands. Its predecessor, 2017 debut The Mortal Coil, was an ARIA-nominated, Top 10 hit in Australia, introducing the
group to legions of fans around the country and, thanks to an extensive international touring schedule, the world.“We wanted
to walk a line between maintaining what’s defined our band and brought people to our music in the first place, while trying
to write for ourselves and keep ourselves interested,” begins drummer Daniel Furnari, one of the main songwriters in the unit.
“Being our second full-length, we knew it was important for us to surprise the listener as well -nobody wants to hear the
same record twice. We wanted to give them things they wouldn’t expect, but also for it to be definitively a Polaris record,
building on what we’ve been working towards.”
