Rising Australian outfit Polaris have just shared a video to accompany ‘Hypermania’, the latest track to be cut and lifted from their upcoming sophomore LP, ‘The Death Of Me’.
This is what drummer Daniel Furnari had to say about it.
“‘Hypermania’ is a song about losing your grip on reality, questioning your sanity, and feeling like you’re on the verge of an explosion all the time. Paranoia, mood swings, white-knuckling your way through the day just barely holding it together. The whole lyrical direction was inspired very directly by the music itself. Rick (Schneider, guitar) has this knack for writing these kind of Southern-hardcore-meets-nu-metal riffs that no one else in the band could write, stuff that’s really noisy, abrasive and discordant, but also tight and bouncy, and that’s where this song began. We started adding this song to our live set towards the end of last year and the energy from the crowd has been batshit crazy every time we’ve played it. The internet has been starting to demand pretty firmly that we release it, and we’ve been itching to get it out for everyone to finally hear it properly, so here it is!”
You can check out the video for ‘Hypermania’ below.
The band’s second studio album, ‘The Death Of Me’, will be released on February 21st 2020 via SharpTone Records.
