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!
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!
2012 was a great year for us. We got around quite a bit, playing shows in New York City, Boston, Los Angeles, Milwaukee and all over Chicagoland.
We thank you for all your support over the last year and a special thanks to our manager Sara for all her hard work and continuous faith in our band.
We are looking forward to 2013 with a lot of additions to our shows, new songs and a new EP that will be out in the spring!
Our next show is a 17+ ages show at Subterranean in Chicago on Friday, February 8th. Please save the date and come rock out with us!
We are also taking this opportunity to share with you some live videos
from our show at Double Door this past November. Our first posting is of
one of our newer songs “Out Of Control”
Thanks again, and we wish the very best to all our friends, family and fans!
