LISTEN: ICEAGE – New Brigade



Iceage are Elias Bender Ronnenfelt and Jakob Tvilling Pless, Johan Surrballe Wieth and Dan Kjaer Nielsen. With just over a week until the UK release of Iceage’s debut album, ‘New Brigade’ they’ve released a FREE STREAM of this brutal balls to the wall record, full of messy rhythms, and unabashed wall splattering vocals.

Formed while at school in Copenhagen, they quickly became a vital part of the city’s heavy music scene. Now all between 18 and 19, they have created an album overflowing with youthful energy, a 12 track sprint, crammed into just 24 minutes, recorded in 4 days. It’s long enough to hit you in the chest, short enough to make you wonder what happened.


The band can currently be found playing shows in every corner of America, sleeping on floors, bloodying noses and getting everyone from The New Yorker to VICE magazine very, very excited.

Their shows are still notoriously physical, sometimes aggressive, often destructive and always fun. They’re coming to the UK in September for the following gigs.

New Brigade is out on Monday 5th September on Abeano.

September 1st Old Blue Last London
September 2nd Islington Mill Salford, Manchester
September 3rd Nation of Shopkeepers Leeds
September 4th The Captain’s Rest Glasgow
September 5th Wolstenhome Creative Space Liverpool
