Watch Iceage Relieve Pressure in 'Ecstasy' Video

Moshing, making out, destruction, and dog fights

The boys of Iceage are about to break, but that's how we prefer 'em. In "Ecstasy," the latest taste from their February 19 Matador debut You're Nothing, singer-guitarist Elias Ronnenfeldt practically gasps, "Pressure! Pressure! Oh God no, pressure! Can't take this pressure." He sounds fantastically winded and weather-beaten while his Danish cohorts dirge on with a clanging whirlwind of nasty blackened punk. It's the kind of wonderful chaos that made their debut New Brigade one of SPIN's favorite albums of 2011.

The song's video, directed by Catherine Pattinama Coleman, is fittingly wild and features the band and other Danish youth relieving pressure via myriad methods: moshing, making out, breaking shit, burning shit, flipping each other off, filming dog fights. Along with the previously heard sexually conflicted breakneck ripper "Coalition," "Ecstasy" and exclusive B-side "A Rifle" will appear on an Escho Records 7-inch out February 5 and temporarily available at the Matador Records shop.
