Polar Bear Club Bio:
After much rumor-spreading and speculation (that turned out to be true), Bridge Nine Records and Polar Bear Club are proud to announce that the upstate New York band has officially joined Bridge Nine's ever-growing roster.
With their upcoming Bridge Nine debut named one of the Most Anticipated Releases of 2009 by Alternative Press, Polar Bear Club is already off to an incredible start. Formed in 2005, Polar Bear Club initially had no expectations of ever becoming a full-time band. Spread out amongst states and time-zones, the band released the EP The Redder The Better before they hit the studio to record 2008's critically acclaimed Sometimes Things Just Disappear on Red Leader Records, which was also named one of AP's Top 10 Most Essential releases of '08. As the interest in the band grew, they dropped jobs, took leaves of absence from school and hit the road with Gaslight Anthem, Crime In Stereo, Broadway Calls, American Steel, A Wilhelm Scream and many more.
Polar Bear Club and Bridge Nine Records will waste no time. Starting in the spring of 2009, the label will re-release Sometimes Things Just Disappear on gatefold vinyl. In the meantime, Polar Bear Club will be touring the world before entering the studio to record their Bridge Nine debut due in Fall 2009.
