Polar Bear Club recently wrapped up their North American touring stint on the Take Action Tour and had some lineup changes along the way – the band is excited to announce Tyler Mahurin as their new drummer. Tyler commented, “I’m so excited to be playing with PBC. I’ve been waiting to find the right band to play in again and I’ve definitely found the right one to call my new family. I can’t wait to see and meet all of the Polar Bear Club fans soon!” Polar Bear Club’s previous drummer, Emmett Menke, recorded drums on their forthcoming full-length Clash Battle Guilt Pride, and left the band on amicable terms. Menke had this to say, “After a great deal of thought, toil, and what have you's, I've decided to permanently leave my post as the drummer for Polar Bear Club. At about the same time PBC decided to be a full time band almost 3 years ago my daughter Milo was born. It was a constant struggle maintaining a healthy home life when we were out playing 200 shows a year and it came to the point where I just had to do the right thing as a Dad and walk away. I love my brothers in Polar Bear Club and wish them the best. I had the pleasure of writing and recording 35 songs with the most talented people I've ever played music with. I've seen more of the world than I ever thought I would. Thanks to all the friends I've made along the way. I'll truly miss you and hope I get to see you all again someday.”

With a UK/European tour on the horizon (with friends Man Overboard in tow), Polar Bear Club will have Tymm from Fireworks filling in on that run, and Tyler Mahurin will join PBC permanently thereafter. Polar Bear Club’s forthcoming full length, Clash Battle Guilt Pride, will be released this Fall – stay tuned for release date and more information coming very soon.
