Polarcode Fall Update

Fall is here, and it’s been too long since we’ve updated this blog, so lets get caught up with some backstory and a series of video releases.

We last left off in July headlining Taste Of Chicago after packing Lincoln Hall for our Supernatural CD release show. Between these shows, we filmed a music video with director Logan Hall for our song My Best Friend in the suburbs of Chicago which got released at the end of July on the same day we performed a set at Wicker Park Fest:

We then followed this up with some live clips and behind-the-scenes footage from our Lincoln Hall show:

We played Taste Of Highland Park at the end of August, and we also landed our first publishing deal with Victoria’s Secret! Our song Breaking My Own Heart is a featured song on a run of 10,000 USB bracelets promoting the Pink campaign. These are being distributed all over the midwest.

So far this September we’ve had two big video releases.

The first, thanks to our manager Sara, was a clip of our My Best Friend music video featured on E! News – our first national TV exposure:

Just after this, we received a nostalgic video trip from Rad Universe edited to our song Supernatural featuring all kinds of gnarly VHS footage:

That officially brings us up to speed as we now head into the next phase of Polarcode!

Taste Of Chicago Tomorrow!

Tomorrow is the big day we’ve been working up to for quite some time now. In less than 24 hours we will be headlining the Bud Light Stage at Taste Of Chicago!

We will be playing your favorite Polarcode songs including the new songs off our “Supernatural” EP and some great cover songs by The Police, Muse and more…

Thanks to all of our fans for helping us get to this point. We couldn’t have done it without you!


Kickstarter Update and Upcoming Shows

Thank you to everyone who donated to our Kickstarter Campaign! Not only did we hit our goal of $6,000 for our new EP “Supernatural” but we almost reached $7,000 at the finish line.

This has given us the ability to make our new songs sound as great as we hoped they would and we’re very excited to release them in the coming weeks.

As we gear up for releasing “Supernatural”, we have some exciting shows coming up:

FRIDAY, MAY 10th: Madison, WI at The Frequency

SATUDAY, MAY 25th: Lincolnshire, IL at Cubby Bear North

TASTE OF CHICAGO — Premiere appearance on July 11th on the Bud Light Stage from 6:40-8:00 P.M.

See you guys at the next show!


New EP, Kickstarter Campaign & Upcoming Shows

Spring is here and Polarcode is gearing up for our new EP, Supernatural.

We will be recording 3 songs that you may have heard at one of our recent shows. We’ve put a lot of time and effort into these songs and feel like we have tapped into a new sound that could propel us to the next level.

We’ve created a Kickstarter Campaign to help fund this EP and are offering some really great pledge packages, so please check it out.

We are happy to announce that we will be performing at FOCUS on the Arts at Highland Park High School on April 12th.

This will be a great opportunity for us to introduce our music to a wider audience and we’re looking forward to meeting all of our future fans!

We will be performing one song live on The Scott Emo Show on Wednesday, April 17th. The Scott Emo Show is an interactive talk show with the simple goal of unearthing unique characters, products and events that inspire and heal.

Get your tickets here. 50% of all ticket sales go to Autism Speaks!

Our next show in Chicago is at Subterranean on Saturday, April 20th. This is for ages 17 and up and features Mike Golden & Friends and Kevin Daniels. We will be playing a surprise cover song, so don’t miss it! Get your tickets here and check out the Facebook event for the details.
