UK post-hardcore outfit POLARs forthcoming effort “No Cure Saviour” was hugely impacted by the bands first-hand experiences witnessing the ever-growing issue of homelessness. During a recent tour, the band made food and headed onto the streets to feed, be company with and listen to people in very less fortunate situations than themselves. They heard firsthand the chilling accounts of their day-to-day lives and the hardships they constantly face. Rather than just standing on the sidelines and preaching, POLAR want to make a change.

POLAR has teamed up with the national charity organization for single homeless people, CRISIS – who’ve changed lives and campaigned for reform for more than 40 years – to raise money and build awareness to the homelessness plight with their music. With our music we are hoping to reach out to people to raise awareness of a charity that is restoring faith back in to humanity, this will be our accomplishment as a band” states vocalist Adam Woodford, “We are all skin and bones and everybody deserves to lead a full and fulfilling life.”

The band have partnered with Revolver Magazine to premiere the touching music video for the new track “Until The Light” featuring the quintet showcasing those who are suffering from being homeless and lending a platform for them to relay their story, watch it in full streaming below or directly via Revolver HERE.

Prior to the scheduled May 6 release of “No Cure, No Saviour” via Prosthetic Records, the band will embark on a series of benefit shows donating all proceeds from the performances directly to CRISIS. The shows will take place in unorthodox locations – rehearsal rooms, barber shops, skate parks – in hopes to reach more than just the casual POLAR fan.
