The Icarus Line have been referred to in the past as a riot – carrying a reputation for violence and chaos wherever they go – but on their upcoming V2 release, Black Lives At The Golden Coast, the Icarus Line have harnessed their wicked impulses into a sonically stunning package.
The Los Angeles-born and raised band formed as teenagers in the late 90s and released a handful of 7″s, EPs, and two full-lengths that propelled them out of the West Coast underground scene and into the national spotlight. The line-up has undergone some changes over the last couple of years with bassist Don Devore fleeing the nest and founder member and guitarist Aaron North being rudely stolen by Nine Inch Nails. Singer and songwriter Joe Cardamone, guitarist Alvin DuGuzman and drummer Jeff The Captain Watson still hold the fort while new members James Striff (guitar) and Jason Decorse (bass)- have seen the band emerge with a renewed sense of mission.
