I love press releases which begin: "Famed for their total disregard of the mainstream music industry, Los Angeles based noise punks The Icarus Line bring their passion for chaos and musical self-destruction back to the UK for dates across the UK and Europe in June and July 2002."
So, in the Uk, you can go on a rapant assault of your senses type date with men in black suits and blood red ties...
June 17th @ Brighton Concorde 2
June 18th @ Cardiff Barfly
July 6th @ Oxford Zodiac
July 7th @ Liverpool Uni
July 8th @ Sheffield Barfly
+ Reading and Leeds.
+ "more dates to be added"
But why should you go? Because they're the most intense, entertaining experience of a live band we've everwitnessed.. Peter White spoke to them when they were over last, read our interview with guitarist Aaron North before their storming show at London's 100 Club: here
Oh, and for our european readers (I hear DiS is big in Holland - hallo!) they play the following dates:
June 22 NETHERLANDS Groningen @ Vera
June 23 NETHERLANDS Amsterdam @ Paradiso
June 24 GERMANY Dresden @ Star Club (with Trail of Dead)

Also, you can download the band's demo cover of Spacemen 3's 'Walking With Jesus' from their official site @ theicarusline.com. And there is also murmurs around about a split EP with Dillinger Escape Plan via the punkiest of rock labels Buddyhead this summer!
