Iceage – “Balm Of Gilead”

Earlier this spring, Iceage released Beyondless, their fourth and best album yet. It ruled as Album Of The Week for its otherworldly ferocity and glamorous abandon. In support of the record, the Danish punks are returning tonight to kick off their North American tour with Black Lips, and today, in its honor, they’re debuting new single “Balm Of Gilead.”

Frontman Elias Bender Rønnenfelt huff and moans. He drags his words until they become vague and feral. The track rattles with Iceage’s usual cocky, unhinged fury, and the lyrics plead for the healing balm of Gilead. Listen to it below, and look out for Iceage’s split 7″ with co-headliners Black Lips available exclusively at the upcoming shows.
