Listen to Iceage’s forthcoming covers 7″ & see them on tour

By Robby on Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

As we type, Iceage are closing out 2013 with worldwide tour dates in support of the year’s essential You’re Nothing LP.  To round out the year Iceage returned to the studio earlier this month to record a covers 7″ to be released on November 19 in partnership with Denmark’s Escho Records.

Entitled To The Comrades, the 7″ contains an incendiary cover of South Africa’s Bahumutsi Drama Group‘s anthem of the same name & a smoldering take on Sinead O’Connor‘s “Jackie”. You can listen to both tracks below & pre-order the vinyl at the Matador Store.


Also, come November 19th. We’ll be releasing a digital-only deluxe version of You’re Nothing featuring the album, these covers and 1 b-side.  Keep an eye on the Matablog for more info on that soon.
