Aussie melodic metalcore band Polaris have shared the latest single taken from their forthcoming ‘Fatalism’ album.
It will also arrive after the tragic passing of the band’s guitarist Ryan Siew, who sadly died in June at the age of just 26.
Despite the inevitable considerations, Polaris decided to continue with the release of the record as planned, writing in a recent statement:
“This is the last set of complete songs that we wrote together with Ryan and though the circumstances of their release are now framed by this tragedy, the meaning of the songs and the love we have for them has not changed.
‘Overflow’ is one of those tunes and is an emphatic, layered track that you can listen to via its video below.
Explaining the meaning of the tune, Polaris drummer and lyricist Daniel Furnari has said:
“This is one of the much more personal and vulnerable tracks on the record lyrically, whereas the other two singles took a wider, more outward perspective.
“I feel like the meaning of the song is fairly self explanatory, and I think a lot of people will naturally interpret it through the lens of their own experiences, but essentially for me it’s about the struggle of fighting off a panic attack and the impact of that struggle on others.”
