ICEAGE'S ONLY OHIO TOUR DATE AND THEIR FIRST OHIO SHOW IN 3 YEARS
One of the most critically acclaimed punk bands of the 21st century, Danish punks Iceage come to the 'Sco for what will be their first Ohio show since 2015 and their only Ohio show on their tour.
Read about the band below, including a description of their new album Beyondless, which comes out May 4th on Matador Records.
Beyondless is the 4th LP from Iceage. This record radiates joy.
Pay attention to the journey, from New Brigade, a juvenile delinquent take on post-punk, full of cold, distant condemnation, and onto the ecstasy of You're Nothing, shedding the more aggressive hardcore influence and dragging in more light, a tendency followed on Plowing Into The Field Of Love. The intoxication is consistent, this has always been drunk music, but it's less a stumbling confusion and more a sturdy heartfelt confession with each record. They have finally caught up with their ambition. Their entire charm has always rested in their running ahead of themselves with blind confidence, taunting you to follow and you follow because wherever they are going is vital, is alive; on Beyondless they are treading with an assurance that is disarming, but there is no loss of charm, you are arm in arm now, whispering intimacies.
"On “Catch It,” Iceage's first new song in four years, they drop the occasionally satirical elements of Plowing and instead zero in on a dark and lusty corner of their chosen genre. Lead singer Elias Bender Rønnenfelt was born to brood, and on “Catch It,” he delivers one of his most emotive vocal performances yet" - Pitchfork
"Pretty much all of the tracks on Beyondless are awesome in their own way, but “Take It All” is one of the best. It’s an enigmatic piece, with an atmosphere that unfolds gradually and changes within a single moment, managing to come across as haunting, angered, and a darkly pretty reverie simultaneously." - Stereogum
