Paws, Pets & Metal is Metal Insider’s newest column on bands with pets, discovering who watches them on the road, and more. Get to know more about these metal furbabies. We caught up with Polar as the group revealed their cat Pickles digs their latest single, “Rush.”


01) Tell us more about your pet(s) and their names?

I have one, a very old Bengal called Pickles and she lives up to her name.



02) Have you ever taken your pet on tour?

I haven’t, I think she would probably hate me forever. It wouldn’t suit her princess lifestyle she has grown accustomed to.


03) Who looks after your pet while on the road?

My parents, she gets spoiled by them that’s for sure.


04) What’s your pet’s favorite song or album?

I think she has a soft spot for Polar’s new single ‘Rush’ probably because after we made it, I played it to death.


05) How did you introduce your pet to metal?

Let’s just say when I discovered Slipknot, she did too.


06) What animal charity means most to you?

I strongly support the RSPCA. There is an unimaginable number of animals in the world that suffer cruelty and neglect and this charity gives everything to make sure animals have loving new homes that they truly deserve.
