The buzz around Iceage is of the sort that immediately puts my bullshit-sensors on heightened alert. They’re teenagers! From Denmark! Playing catchy, intense post-/punk! The press release basically writes itself!
But, you know what? As it turns out, New Brigade, out now on What’s Your Rupture?, totally rules. And if the early reviews of the quartet’s first US shows are any indication, the band is one to catch when it hits the Elbo Room on July 25th (with Cult of Youth, 9pm, $10) and Amoeba SF on the 26th (6pm, Free). Tickets for the Elbo Room show are on sale now.
