We are very excited to announce our CD release party on April 7 at the Pyramid Scheme in Grand Rapids, Michigan! We are also working on touring plans for the east coast and midwest. More info to come soon!
We’ll be playing a show on Saturday, October 1st at 6:00 p.m. during Art Prize in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We are excited to be performing underneath artist Mark Rumsey’s art installation at the Women’s City Club. Check out more amazing photos at markrumsey.com/the-sky-is-not-falling.html. We’ll also be playing with The Campenellis (https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Campanellis/222107934468004) and Radiator Hospital (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Radiator-Hospital/176558109029693?sk=wall)!
You might have wondered what happened to us. In the last 6 months there have been three new additions to the Icicles’ families. In late December Aaron and his wife Emily had a son – Drake. Then in early May Gretchen and Zane had twin babies – Walter and Miriam. Things have finally settled down and we’ll be getting back to practice and hopefully releasing the album we recorded in June of last year.
Well, we are finally out of hibernation after recording fifteen songs this summer for our upcoming album. We will be helping to kick off the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Walk on Oct. 2 at the downtown YMCA. We will be playing at 5:30 p.m. Hope you can make it!
