Iceage released their debut album ‘New Brigade’ to rave reviews in 2011. Comprising of members Elias Ronnenfelt, Jakob Tvilling Pless, Johan Surrballe Wieth and Dan Kjaer Nielsen, Iceage formed when they were 10 years old.
Their debut album, recorded in four days, is, pointedly, 12 tracks long and comes in at an even more pertinent 25 minutes. Iceage clearly want it to be part of that classic short-sharp-shock lineage that includes those historic debuts by the Clash and Ramones. The New York Times and the New Yorker have been both quoted in asking whether they are the new saviours of punk?
‘New Brigade’ by Iceage is a restatement, not a revolution. Every track lasts two minutes or less, except for one, as though there were an excess of excess out there, and Iceage were taking a stand. Rotting Heights suggests Iceage are capable of more than crash-bang-wallop; on Eyes they even approximate the frenetic jazz-punk of Richard Hell and the Voidoids.

“In an era of rock-gone-easy-listening and endless reunions, ‘New Brigade’ is a reminder of how powerful a noisy, a new band with something to prove can sound.” The Washington Post
