Embarking on the band’s first headlining tour in over a year, Polar Bear Club vocalist Jimmy Stadtenthusiastically remarks,“We are so excited about this tour. We haven’t really played to our people in a long time and we haven’t had a chance to show the new fans of Polar Bear Club what that means yet.” Having toured the world relentlessly over the past two years since releasing their breakthrough record Chasing Hamburg (2009, Bridge Nine), the band’s most recent US tour included supporting Bayside and Silverstein on the Take Action Tour. Polar Bear Club has shared the stage with Thrice, Face To Face, The Gaslight Anthem, August Burns Red, Bring Me The Horizon, and many more, as well as stints on the Vans Warped Tour and Alternative Press’ AP Tour.

As the groundswell of anticipation continues to grow for Clash Battle Guilt Pride, Polar Bear Club has recently launched a new website for the album, unveiling a puzzle piece of the cover art each day at: http://www.ClashBattleGuiltPride.com. Full album art will be revealed shortly.
