Earlier this year Iceage visited New York to play two shows and help present the ‘Thrown Together‘ gallery event, an art exhibition featuring some artworks from their friends local and global. Los Angeles-based artist/photographer/director/label boss Cali Thornhill Dewitt came along for the ride and produced a striking short film tracking the band’s activities that weekend in the city & shots of the visuals on display, set to live audio of “Morals” from ‘You’re Nothing‘
‘Coalition’ is the first single off Iceage’s forthcoming album You’re Nothing, out 15 February 2013 via Matador/Remote Control.
“Coalition showcases them at peak velocity: showy drum fills, windmilling guitar chords” Best New Track – Pitchfork
“Black eyes, racing hearts, can’t lose…Mark your calendar/set an iPhone reminder/do whatever it is you have to do to remember that You’re Nothing drops… listen to Coalition” VICE
You’re Nothing, was recorded & produced by Iceage in Copenhagen and Møn, Denmark.
Just out of their teens, it seems Copenhagen’s Iceage have only added to the anxiety and tension that made their debut album, New Brigade, so compelling. But now, with two years of touring behind them, they’re challenging their raging emotions instead of simply expressing them.
When watching Iceage live you get the feeling the songs could be just about to fall apart before they miraculously recover, always rewarding you with a climax. It’s this menacing energy found in their shows that’s more forceful on You’re Nothing. The guitars flay violently and the vocals sound furious at times, but they’re also far more melodic and dynamic than on their debut.
You’re Nothing pushes Iceage’s singular sound to further extremes. Twelve examples of the myriad ways Iceage have written, and re-written the short aggressive rock song.
