Introducing :: Iceage
Denmark's rising pubescent punks, Iceage having already taken their homeland by storm over the past couple of years, are now setting their sights on the U.S. with today's release of their debut set, New Brigade on What's Your Rapture? The quartet of 18 and 19 year olds have garnered just comparisons to fellow Scandinavians, Refused [R.I.P.]. But where Refused deconstructed hardcore (with mastery), Iceage injects new life into the cannons of post-punk throughout their jagged and bracing debut. According to the bands blog, it appears that Iceage will be spending the bulk of the summer touring the U.S. with three Boston area dates over the next couple of months. The bands Boston debut comes this Friday when they play Royale with Fucked Up and Jeff The Brotherhood. For optical and aural evidence of what to expect, check the live video of You're Nothing and the embed of album opener, White Rune below and by all means, get their early.
