Anybody who has any sort of punk pedigree is currently creaming themselves over Iceage.
There is a pretty decent chance that their forthcoming What's Your Rupture? release New Brigade will give the upcoming Fucked Up album David Comes to Life a run for the best hardcore album that people not normally into hardcore will enjoy. And would you look at that — the preview copy of their album starts up on my iTunes right after Zen Arcade wraps up. Isn't that just a fantastic coincidence? Don't you just love technology?
Iceage are making it over to the States next month for a couple of shows. It's probably going to be a bloodbath of awesome.
