WATCH: Get A Taste Of Live As Iceage In Pummeling Video For “Ecstasy”

 

If the hum of feedback opening Iceage’sEcstasy” isn’t enough to churn up some anxiety within you, then by the time the song hits full stride you can’t help but feel like it’s all about to fall apart  while you’re racing to keep up. Guitars switch between a hiss and a buzz saw, cymbals crash everywhere with singer Ronnenfelt howling at you; almost baiting you to stay with it.

 

The video for this rollercoaster ride of a song was shot in the band’s home of Copenhagen and conveys the same frantic energy found at Iceage’s shows. Quick flashes of dogs fighting, broken glass, shirtless bleary-eyed dancing in smoke filled rooms, and friendship all work to give and idea of where these sounds are coming from.

 

Iceage’s New Brigade was one of 2011’s most interesting releases and their upcoming album You’re Nothing, released February 19th on Matador, promises to be the same, showing an even further progression of spirit and sound.

 

Iceage is also releasing a 7” on February 5th, featuring “Ecstasy”, “Coalition” and exclusive B-side “A Rifle”, available through Matador via import in limited quantity. The band sets out on a tour across Europe and North America, starting with a special event in New York on January 26th and concluding in Austin at the Chaos In Tejas festival at the end of May.
