Iceage seethe on the raucous new song “Balm of Gilead.” The track comes out in jagged bursts, speeding up and slowing down as singer Elias Bender Rønnenfelt wails over a distorted post-punk riff.
“Balm of Gilead” will appear exclusively on an upcoming split seven-inch vinyl featuring a track from the Black Lips on the flip-side. The two bands are uniting for a North American tour that launches Monday, November 5th in Vancouver, British Columbia and runs through early December.
Iceage’s latest song follows their May-issued fourth LP, Beyondless, which features “Catch It,” “Take It All” and the Sky Ferreira-featured “Pain Killer.” The Danish band promoted the album with vivid clips for “Under the Sun” and “The Day the Music Dies,” the latter shot at a Masonic Temple.
The quartet previously hosted a series of live residencies in Brooklyn, Los Angeles and Japan featuring personally curated visual art.
