Stream A New Polar Bear Club Song

Like so many of their pop punk peers have done recently, Polar Bear Club made the jump to Rise Records this year. The traditionally metalcore-centric label has been digging deeply into the pop punk scene over the past few years, putting out the latest records from the likes of Man Overboard, Transit, and Hot Water Music, and that trend continues with the release of Polar Bear Club’s fourth full-length album, Death Chorus, on November 19.

The second single from Death Chorus, called “Upstate Mosquito,” is streaming after the break. It is the closing track on the new album, but the chorus that follows the subdued intro is catchy and upbeat in a way that no Polar Bear Club closer has been before. Also worth noting is Jimmy Stadt’s vocal approach, which is cleaner and more melody-conscious than on past records. The shift has surprised a lot of fans who were used to the gruff yell that defined songs like “Eat Dinner, Bury the Dog, and Run,” but there’s no denying that Stadt, one of the most talented vocalists in this genre, does the clean, almost Chris Conley-esque sound quite well.

Preorder Death Chorus right here and catch the band on tour this fall with Citizen, Sainthood Reps, and Diamond Youth.

    What happened to these guys. His raspy vocals are made them so unique. O well… Go back to Bridge Nine.
