LISTEN TO ICEAGE’S NEW ALBUM, YOU’RE NOTHING (OUT FEB. 19
ON MATDOR), VIA PITCHFORK ADVANCE

You’re Nothing, the sophomore album by Copenhagen’s Iceage and first on Matador, presents 4 young men – Jakob Tvilling Pless (bass), Dan Kjær Nielsen (drums), Elias Bender Rønnenfelt (vocals/guitar), and Johan Suurballe Wieth (guitar) – adding to the anxiety and tension that made their debut album, New Brigade, so compelling. But now, just over 2 years later, they’re challenging their raging emotions instead of simply expressing them. This is the sound of a band pushing their singular mix of punk, Goth, hardcore, and post-punk to even further extremes without any compromises. It’s overwhelming how many ways Iceage has found to write the short aggressive rock song, and exciting to contemplate where they could be three years from now at the age of 23. Stream Iceage’s You’re Nothing now in its entirety via Pitchfork Advance, and catch the band live all over North America this spring.


“louder and looser than thy were on 2011′s New Brigade, but frighteningly more focused”

- Pitchfork [Best New Track]

“The hoarse uplift of New Brigade’s most civilian-friendly fist raisers returns, but with an upgraded arsenal’s laser-guided precision. Clamoring drum breaks and shoegaze-warped guitar fills bolster the band’s now-familiar breakneck assault, which still might leave you out of breath.” – SPIN

“[Iceage's] follow-up, You’re Nothing, is much more dense and complex. Most songs still clock in under three minutes, but there’s a new sense heaviness to their music-a sort of adult exhaustion that throws direct emotion out the window in favor of complex self-deprecation and ragged yowls.” – The FADER
