"There’s a feeling familiar to all women who have walked down the street and received unwanted and aggressive attention from men. It starts under the skin, the prickly, red hot rage that comes in a flash, building and building, like a scream in the back of the throat—a scream that we all too often stifle and swallow. But the energy of that scream, that charged heat, stays within us, making it easy to recognize when we hear it coming out of someone else’s mouth; we’re drawn to it, a wail like an open wound, raw and rough and sticky. " - Nylon
Weeping Icon is an experimental noise punk band based in Brooklyn, NY. All four members are long-time vets to the DIY Brooklyn music scene (former & current bands ADVAETA, Lutkie, Mantismass, Warcries, Water Temples), and they are breaking new ground with their explosive take on the traditional rock configuration. Their live show is immense and energetic; their addictive combination of searing riffs & rhythms, fearless vocals and thrillingly unexpected sounds - delivered through heaps of hair and controlled feedback - is expertly crafted into an enveloping landscape that doesn’t let up from start to finish. Their anticipated debut EP “Eyeball Under” will be joint released July 14th, 2017 on Kanine Records and Fire Talk Records.
Available July 14th on CS / Digital. Late September on 12" Vinyl.
