Iceage announces North American release of New Brigade


iceage promo 2011 Iceage announces North American release of New Brigade

If Copenhagen is anything like most American hubs, there are plenty of 18-year-old punks starting bands. Few of them will ever likely make the trip across the Atlantic, but Iceage is looking to be an exception. Their debut record, New Brigade, sold out on Denmark’s Escho Records last year, and a limited North American pressing on DAIS Records is already in its second printing, but a proper release is just around the corner.

According to Exclaim, What’s Your Rupture will put New Brigade in stores on June 21st. You can check out the album track “White Rune” below, and the video for the title track is on the band’s Myspace. The tunes express an impassioned hardcore/post-punk sensibility with an ear towards melodic songwriting typically expected from most 18 or 19 year old teens. Sure, they look lethargic in the video, but the sound is anything but.

After touring the UK with Fucked Up, the band will make its US debut at this years Northside Festival on June 17th. Why not sooner? They’ve got to finish up high school for the year first. Teens, am I right? Check out the tracklist for New Brigade and their full tour schedule below.
