Biography

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, they’re challenging their raging emotions instead of simply expressing them. You're Nothing, Iceage’s sophomore album, is the sound of a band pushing their singular mix of punk, Goth, hardcore, and post-punk to even further extremes. It’s overwhelming how many ways Iceage have found to write the short aggressive rock song.
When you see Iceage live you get the feeling the songs are just about to fall apart before miraculously recovering, always rewarding you with a climax. This menacing energy is more forceful on You're Nothing. It is a more epic sound, like a rough sea.

Coming October 6 : Iceage - 'Plowing Into The Field Of Love', "Forever" Video, North America/EU/Australia Tour Dates







"Forever" - directed by Catherine Pattinama Coleman

On October 6 (October 7 in North America, Matador will be releasing the 3rd Iceage album, 'Plowing Into The Field Of Love'.  Recorded by Jens Benz and Nis Bysted at Koppom, Sweden's Silence Studios (and produced by Bysted and Iceage, the new record channels the rage and emotion of their tempestuous early releases into finely honed musicianship, 'Plowing Into The Field of Love' features piano, mandolin, viola and organ atop Johan Suurballe-Wieth's razor-sharp guitars and the lolloping, synchronized rhythm section of Jacob Tvilling Pless and Dan Kjær Nielsen. The record has a clear, uncompressed sound, and Elias Bender Rønnenfelt's desperate vocals are out front, nakedly accountable for the words. 
 
On this album, Rønnenfelt sings of what it is like to be out in the world, dizzy with its offerings, perched on a plateau of false confidence, bliss, fantasy and delirious self-denial. The autobiographical "Forever," for which Iceage have shared the video today, begins with a pretty repetitive motif over the words, "I always had the sense that I was split in two," and climaxes with a sunburst of horns recalling South African spiritual jazz great Mongezi Feza: "If I could dive into the other, I'd lose myself forever." At the other extreme, the album evokes a sort of euphoria, especially in the unexpectedly upbeat country number "The Lord's Favorite," and even humor. Yet desperation and loss lurks behind. This is an album about seeing, learning, and rejecting things, in a cycle that repeats and builds. The reference points are wildly varied, but the sound is uniquely and darkly Iceage as the record fights with itself, in the story it tells, and the sound it makes. It is not, however, a remotely difficult record. It is the anthemic sound of a band in motion, unafraid of change, filled with curiosity, musicality and ambition.

Iceage will be touring Australia, North America and Europe this fall.
