Danish über-rockers Iceage have announced new UK tour dates for March 2022. In addition, the band have released a brand new song, ‘Gold City’.
The new song is the fourth and final single previewed for the band’s upcoming fifth LP Seek Shelter. Previously, the band shared ‘The Holding Hand’, ‘Vendetta’, and ‘Shelter Song‘ with the public, setting the stage for what is sure to be an explosive new release from a band already known for being explosive and combustible.
“At home and enraptured in the fleeting moment, the sky becomes technicolour in its makeshift lucidity,” Iceage’s Elias Bender Rønnenfelt says of ‘Gold City’. “A culmination made so that everything felt briefly complete. Traffic lights and the setting sun through a polluted filter, shimmering and golden.”
The band is already playing plenty of gigs in their home country, but they don’t plan on going international until next year. The first round of shows will be in the United States, where the indie punks have scheduled a gruelling 22 show run between February and March, crisscrossing the country with a number of back to backers and two night stands. There won’t be much time to breathe, as there’s only an eleven-day gap between the end of the American tour and the start of the UK leg. Iceage have built their reputation on tireless touring and a fierce live show, so these kinds of numbers shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. Still, the band has kept up this pace for well over a decade, making you wonder how much longer they can sustain this kind of pace. Hopefully, it’s forever, but that’s probably not realistic.
