Alternative pop-rock quartet Icarus The Owl announce their signing to Blue Swan Records today. “Since Icarus The Owl started, we only wanted to work with people who valued music on a creative level,” said vocalist and guitarist Joey Rubenstein. “That being said, Blue Swan Records, to us, are a label founded by creatives that care about the progression and merit of music. There is a real sense of community and friendship among the Blue Swan fans and bands and we feel lucky to announce that we have signed with them.”
The band is currently in the midst of recording their debut album with Blue Swan Records with producer Stephen Hawkes of Interlace Audio. “We hope to have the album out by the end of the year. Expect melodies, guitars to be making sounds, pianos to be pianoing, and probably some drumming,” added Rubenstein. Along with their signing, the band announced the that they will join the southwest leg of the Allomaternal Tour with Stolas,Artifex Pereo and Eidola this July and are to play additional shows on the way.
Icarus The Owl just completed a spring tour in support of A Lot Like Birds, followed by a short stint of dates with The Venetia Fair leading up to their performance at the 2015Launch Music Conference & Festival.
