VIDEO NEWS: Polaris Release Video For ‘Hypermania’
Polaris have released a video for their new single Hypermania, taken from their forthcoming sophomore album The Death Of Me.
“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,” explains drummer Daniel Furnari. “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!”
The Death Of Me is due for release on 21st February via SharpTone Records, available to pre-order HERE.
