Iceage - "Balm Of Gilead"






(photo by Christian Friedlander)

To coincide with their North American tour kicking off tonight, Iceage have unveiled the previously unreleased “Balm of Gilead", a striking reminder of the band’s ability to create a confident anthem in a dark age. “Balm of Gilead” is part of a split 7” with tourmates Black Lips and will be available in physical form exclusively at the shows on this tour.

Iceage — Elias Bender Rønnenfelt (vocals, lyrics), Jakob Tvilling Pless (bass), Dan Kjær Nielsen (drums), and Johan Wieth (guitar) — will return to as a quartet on this North American run. Fans can expect a taste of new music on top of the band’s beloved catalog. Or alongside. The repertoire is up to them (as always)

Out Now: 'Beyondless' - the fourth LP from Iceage


Photo: Kristian Emdal

Iceage take no issue with switching up their sound from project to project. While many of us would have been more than happy to hear a second act accompaniment to the rasping 'You're Nothing' or a freewheeling 'Plowing..' Part 2, it's with style and conviction that the band ceaselessly provide us with yet a new way of experiencing their world.

'Beyondless' is a record steeped in the miasma of old wrongs and new mistakes, hung on a scaffold of Elias Bender Rønnenfelt's most accomplished lyric writing to date. The title is a nod to the immortal Irish playwright - Samuel Beckett - whose bleak nuance and tendency to laugh directly into the abyss are appropriately mirrored in Rønnenfelt's post-structuralist written reflections.

'Beyondless' is released today, buy it or stream it here
