“Slave Vows, captures [The Icarus Line] sounding as vital as before: strutting, sweating, and snarling in a way that exposes almost every younger band around them as herbal-tea-sniffing, bowtie-necked Walter The Softy-types.” DIS
"This album captures all the raw power of one of their sweat soaked hard-hitting live shows. No mean feat. It’s music to kill to, or f**k to, or both." Trebuchet
“City Job… finds The Icarus Line’s intensity given a new and ruthless focus.” Uncut
The Icarus Line converted and re-ignited the feral rock n roll passions of many a music fan with the distilled and furious whiplash of their last album, Slave Vows (Agitated, 2013) and subsequent UK tour, including a performance at ATP’s End Of An Era.
The defiant Los Angeles 5 piece, (Band names / instruments) are back with their new video, ‘City Job’ which premiered yesterday via Dangerous Minds.
Taken from the aformentioned much-celebrated-return-to-form long-player Slave Vows, ‘City Job’ is directed by their long time collaborator Ward RobinsonBetter known for his documentary and fashion photography work in LA, ‘City Job’ marks Ward’s impressive directorial debut.
Says Joe Cardamone, “Ward had a concept that he pitched to me while we were preparing for tour. It sounded pretty laborious but I said if he could pull it off then he should go for it. Turns out he really did in spades. It's a perfect visual to the track.”

Having just completed production work with the Stooges and Pink Mountaintops, (to name but two) Cardamone and his compadres have returned to his Valley Recording Studios to begin recording a new album whilst finalising the release of Avowed Slavery, the soon-to-be-released 12” – a release which will function as a companion to last year’s Slave Vows.

“An eminently powerful work of rock ‘n’ roll from start to finish, Slave Vows hasn’t saved the soul of rock music, but it sure as hell has revitalized it.” Popmatters

"Just when you think you’ve fallen out of love with The Icarus Line, they fuck you up all over again." 9/10 Drowned in Sound

"a perfect reintroduction to The Icarus Line and an album which walks the wild side with instinctive ease and righteous fury." 4/5 Kerrang

“Slave Vows is the true follow-up to 2004’s blistering Penance Soiree, only with more revenge against the status quo, cloaked in shades of opaque black.” Alternative Press

"they never disappoint" 4/5 Mojo 

"a passionate, purposeful and wonderfully presented collection of combustive rock songs." 8/10 Clash 

“The Icarus Line are a thrilling five-headed beast….” The Fly 

“Slave Vows…. conserves the purity of the band’s sonic squall while introducing a new approach to capturing that sound on record.” The Line of Best Fit

“like Swans (and the Icarus Line are one of the few bands at all worthy of comparison), the years of experience have gifted the band a certain gravitas, a carved and careworn dignity, a powerful maturity.” Quietus
