Wikipedia entry for The Icarus Line’s first ever release… Highlypuncturingnoisetestingyourabilitytohate! Highlypuncturingnoisetestingyourabilitytohate was the first release of the Hollywood-based rock band The Icarus Line. It was released in 1998 as a vinyl 7-inch, and was limited to 1,000 copies.

Here is the first part of my exclusive interview with Jason, Joe and Wade from The Icarus Line when the band came over to London in 2008. Check back soon for the second part to that interview. Before their recent “secret” show at Old Blue Last in London, I was lucky enough to catch up […]

The following is an article that was printed in Kerrang June 30 2001. In it, Joe Cardamone set out the band’s manifesto, and what UK audiences could expect from The Icarus Line when the group invaded the UK a few days later.
