If you live on the West Coast, you’ll have the chance to see LA rock band The Icarus Line starting this Sunday, December 1st. The group will be touring across the West Coast from the 1st through 12th, and will be releasing a new full length sometime in 2015. Additional information hasn’t been announced about the album yet, but you can check out the full list of dates below and it wouldn’t be surprising if they play some new material at these shows.  Below is “Don’t Let Me Save Your Soul” from the full length Slave Vows.

The Icarus Line

Los Angeles-based rockers The Icarus Line are proud to announce a West-coast tour for this winter, which will start on December 1 at Velvet Jones in Santa Barbara, CA and conclude on December 12 at Soda Bar in San Diego, CA. The full list of tour dates is below, with more to be announced soon.

The group has been pretty busy as of late — since the recent release of their mini-LP Avowed Slavery and their full-length Slave Vows (featuring “Don’t Let Me Save Your Soul”) before that, they’ve been hard at work in the studio wrapping up a brand new full-length that will be in the hands of eager listeners next year.

Anger, they say, is an energy, but energy counts for nothing unless you know how to wield it correctly. Los Angeles hellions The Icarus Line have spent a decade and change mastering that energy, manifesting via retina-scarring, pulse-quickening live performances ever on the edge of total collapse and often tumbling into brilliance, via well-publicized pranks at the expense of corporate rock’s sacred cows (that time they graffiti-ed The Strokes’ tour bus, that time they stole Stevie Ray Vaughan’s guitar, that time they published Fred Durst’s cellphone number on the affiliated website Buddyhead), and – most potently – via four albums of sleek, sulphurous punk-rock that stoked their rage into a righteous, seductive party.
