‘Flensburg’, the new Icarus / Badun split EP is now available via Bandcamp. There are also some reviews up on the Liminal and the Danish magazine Gaffa.

Also, a big thank you to everyone who helped organise the Icarus tour this spring and to everyone who came out to the shows. Icarus are set to return with a new studio album in the autumn, you can keep posted about it through the Icarus website.
