Today marks the day for the new release, Ream Circuits, from Icarus the Owl. Sheila talks with the band in advance of the release!
Icarus The Owl formed in 2009 and wasted no time in completing their debut album, The Spotless Mind, which sold over 10,000 copies while they followed the 2009 Vans Warped Tour. Over 20 tours and 2 more self-released albums later, the band signed a deal with Will Swan of Dance Gavin Dance’s label, Blue Swan Records, in 2015. They released their Blue Swan debut, Pilot Waves, in October of 2015, placing them on the Billboard Heatseeker’s chart for the first time in their career.
Fast forward to present day, Icarus is gearing up for the release of their 5th studio album, Rearm Circuits. Icarus The Owl was put to the test both personally and musically during the making of Rearm Circuits. From being on tour in Paris during the tragic terrorist attacks to taking an unplanned 7 month hiatus, Icarus has been put through the ringer and is ready to rearm their circuits, so to speak. “So much has happened to us in the last two years. I am ecstatic that we made it out the other side with what I feel is easily our best record,” says Rubenstein.
Rearm Circuits will be released on December 1st via Blue Swan Records. Pre-order bundles are available now at icarustheowl.com
