Beerwolf formed in Redfern in 2016 mostly as an excuse to hole up at the pub opposite the hallowed Troy Horse studios (RIP). The bands new record, Common Grief provides a somewhat more sour washdown of society as a whole. The internationally accepted Beerwolf recipe combines 30ml classic Nitro Records energy, 15ml of Jade Tree melody and 60ml of Bridge Nine aggression.
Resist Records news
Melbourne metalcore outfit LUNE have announced their signing to Resist Records and release their new EP “The Change Around Us & The Change In You“.
LUNE showcase their strengths on Progeny, journeying through raging moments of heavy hitting drums, pulsing guitars and violent vocal lines, sharing with listeners the first taste of their anticipated sophomore EP. Collaborating with Jamie Marinos on production, Lance Prenc with additional drum engineering and Buster Odeholm on the mix and master, the quartet are gearing up to release their fierce new collection with an all star team behind them.

Order “The Change Around Us & The Change In You”
Equally steeped in angst alongside underlying catharsis, an expanded thematic gaze and heavier sonic terrain, Fatalism organically builds on the bleak imagery and hard-hitting soundscapes permeating Polaris’s ARIA Award-nominated 2020 release The Death of Me. But rather than wallow or stagnate, Fatalism instead powerfully holds up a proverbial mirror while also galvanizing the Sydney five-piece’s trademark blend of melodic metalcore, lush post rock, electronic flourishes and beyond.
Polaris will launch their new album Fatalism this September with a national headline tour alongside August Burns Red, Kublai Khan TX and Currents, with the tour’s Perth, Adelaide, Newcastle and Brisbane shows sold out, before embarking on an international run supporting While She Sleeps in the UK and Europe, performing at Aftershock 2023 and kicking off a North American headline run in October.
Beloved steel-city 5-piece Jacob have released the follow up to 2018’s “Show Me Some Passion” with “The Rock Band”.
Hailing from the NSW cities of Newcastle and Wollongong, Jacob have amassed a strong fanbase across the country since the bands inception in 2013, releasing two LPs thus far, Jacob (2016) and Show Me Some Passion (2018). The band have also been lucky enough to support the likes of Turnstile (US), Tigers Jaw (US), Against Me! (US) and The Get Up Kids (US), as well as tours with Luca Brasi and Joyce Manor (US).
ORDER “THE ROCK BAND”
Fear: humanity’s great divider, but also its most potent unifier. It’s this very notion that lies at the beating core of Polaris’s third album Fatalism; a record shaped by the sense of despair and dystopia that engulfed the world over the past few years, and the overwhelming accompanying sensation that we were powerless to change course.
Due out on September 1 via Resist Records in Australia and SharpTone Records for the rest of the world, Fatalism features brand new single, Inhumane, accompanied by the band’s most ambitious and goriest music videos to date.
Catch them on the “FATALISM AUSTRALIAN TOUR” this September with August Burns Red, Kublai Khan and Currents. Early Bird tickets go on-sale Tuesday 6 June @ 10am AEST

Due out on Friday 16 June via Resist Records in Australia, and SharpTone Records for the rest of the world, ABEYANCE will feature the group’s recent singles THE GREAT DEPRESSION and WRAITH, as well as a brand new track A.D.D, a futuristic and, at times, industrial wormhole that flits between crystalline calm and stadium-ready, scathing arrangements.
Working on ABEYANCE alongside Marcus Bridge (Northlane), Landon Tewers (The Plot In You), Zach Britt (Dream On, Dreamer) and Trenton Woodley (Hands Like Houses), producer Callan Orr also returned after his work on alt.’s 2020 debut EP dysfunctional.
Beloved steel-city 5-piece Jacob have released their first single since 2019 with the nostalgia-fuelled, pop-punk anthem “Not Only When You’re Lonely”.
Hailing from the NSW cities of Newcastle and Wollongong, Jacob have amassed a strong fanbase across the country since the bands inception in 2013, releasing two LPs thus far, Jacob (2016) and Show Me Some Passion (2018). The band have also been lucky enough to support the likes of Turnover (US) , Turnstile (US), Tigers Jaw (US), Against Me! (US) and The Get Up Kids (US), as well as tour with Luca Brasi and Joyce Manor (US).
“Not Only When You’re Lonely” has all the elements of a Jacob tune fans have come to know and love over the years; catchy-yet-chaotic vocal melodies coming from every direction, tongue-in-cheek lyrics that effortlessly flow between satire and hopeless romanticism, and an infectious, full bodied sound that always leaves you coming back for more. Although the band still have one foot firmly in Emo territory, Not Only When You’re Lonely certainly creeps further towards the pop end of the punk spectrum, with an upbeat, explosive tone reminiscent of the early 2000s sound the band grew up with.
