Official press release: Creator-Destructor Records is extremely excited to announce the addition of Connecticut's Kids Icarus to their roster! Hailing influence from the likes of Propagandhi, Shai Hulud, and A Wilhelm Scream, the Northeastern quintet combines razor-sharp technicality with genuine sincerity and unbridled passion to create a sound truly unique in the world of punk rock. Label owner Ben Murray states, "It is truly an honor to be putting this record out. I have known these guys for a while and always knew what they were capable of, but this material just blew me away. It's so refreshing to see such progressive musicianship and forward thinking within the genre of punk rock, and they are definitely a perfect match for our label's ideals and ethics. Get stoked!" Originally a side project of guitarist Adam Sahlin, Kids Icarus slowly evolved over the last two years, and became a full-time unit in 2010. Although each member has roots in the metal and hardcore scenes, their intent with this project was to create something energetic, catchy, sincere, and a fair bit more melodic than their previous endeavors. The band prides themselves on being a "vehicle for kindness, humility and honesty," which is evident in the uplifting tone and emotional tendencies showcased in their material. The debut self-titled 7" will see a late March release via Creator-Destructor Records in vinyl and digital formats. The effort will contain four tracks that reflect the band's progressive and innovative take on modern punk rock and melodic hardcore. Preorders for the record will begin in the coming weeks, but fans can now stream the songs at the band's bandcamp page.
