Polar Bear Club Announce “Clash Battle Guilt Pride”, Full US Tour to Follow

Polar Bear Club have announced their third full length album, Clash Battle Guilt Pride, and set a street date for September 13th. The album was recorded this past Spring in Baltimore with producer Brian McTernan (Texas Is The Reason, Strike Anywhere, Set Your Goals). Vocalist Jimmy Stadt said of the record:

“[There are songs about] drive and ambition, and what it does to yourself and what it does to your relationships… Musically, we’re really, really playing up our choruses, moreso than we ever have before. We have three-chorus songs. We’ve never really done that. It’s great. It just makes sense for us to be doing that now, and it feels good, and we all love it.”

Additionally, Polar Bear Club are revealing the cover art bit-by-bit on their new website every day until this coming Friday. They will be touring the UK and Europe along with Man Overboardbeginning July 13th.

Update: The band will be embarking on a seven-week US tour in support of Clash Battle Guilt Pride beginning September 1st in Rhode Island. Fireworksand Balance and Composure will provide support on the entire stretch, while the opening slot will feature Make Do And Mend and Such Gold on separate legs.
