Baltimore, Maryland’s favorite hardcore renegades, TRAPPED UNDER ICE, have teamed with Noisey to stream their highly anticipated new full length, Heatwave. Due out July 21st via Pop Wig Records (the label co-founded by TUI members Justice Tripp and Brendan Yates), the album is a 14 minute blast of aggression, hooks, and joyful mayhem. Noisey praised the record saying it “mixes up more of a punk and fun rock n roll style, but Heatwave is still very much a Trapped Under Ice record… with their signature snarl and moshy aggression.”

The band also has a lengthy run of North American tour dates lined up in support of Heatwave, including a just-announced appearance at Not Dead Yet Fest in Toronto.  See full itinerary below.

When Trapped Under Ice went on hiatus in 2013 their impact was felt, whether directly through the new bands formed by TUI-alums themselves (most notably Turnstile and Angel Du$t), or indirectly in the sonic influence taken by many young up-and-coming HC bands, many of which have now released music through Pop Wig Records, the label founded by several Trapped Under Ice members. Now everything has come full circle as Trapped Under Ice return with Heatwave, continuing to hold their never-vacated mantle as one of hardcore’s most forward-thinking bands.

Trapped Under Ice have always colored outside the lines, often treating hardcore’s conventions as loose guidelines to be shifted and warped into something driven just as much by hooks as by breakdowns. On 2011’s modern classic, Big Kiss GoodnightTrapped Under Ice began to lean into their catchier sensibilities, and now Heatwave finds the band fully embracing that side of themselves and writing their most concise and infectious work to-date. The album’s tight fourteen minute run time leaves no room for filler, just eleven lean tracks of aggressively groovy, hook-filled hardcore, at once exuberant and kinetic but undeniably raw.
