The Icarus Line To Tour With Killing Joke, Release Expanded Catalog

It’s nice to see hard work finally pay off for once. A couple of days ago, Joe Cardamone of the Icarus Line announced that the band was going to be supporting Killing Joke on their spring trek across Europe. A bunch of fuck-ups going overseas means that shit’s…..well, gonna get fucked up. And in order to do that, they need dinero and lots of it. Europe’s expensive, kids. Their dollar is worth like 2 of our dollars, which means $20 here is like $10 over there. Thanks, Bush. However, fundraising is something the band’s good at and they’ve managed to keep it creative and interesting for the fans.

This time, the band’s releasing expanded editions of its previous releases. They’ve just unveiled expanded editions of Mono and Penance Soiree and this shit’s loaded. I haven’t scounged up $20, but it seems like a pretty good deal for 31 tracks. From their official site:

The fan fave! Here we have a full quality download of Penance. Whatever you have on your Ipod probably pales in comparison to the quality of this download. Not to mention we have never seen one royalty statement for this record ever so don’t buy it on itunes(etc.). The bonus material included here ranges from a good portion of our sessions for John Peel on the BBC to the pre production jam tapes from the months leading up to the recording sessions and everything in between. Also included are all B sides that came on the singles for the record.

As previously mentioned all profits are going towards funding our tour with Killing Joke. Thank you for your support and Enjoy!

Nice. So do the right thing. Throw the band some money and they’ll throw you something cooler in return. If you’re in Europe, you can check out the tour dates below along with the tracks below. If you dig bands that sound like the Stooges, the Birthday Party, and Spacemen 3, you’ll dig this.
