London upstarts iC1s announce new single ahead of UK Tour
iC1s, have confirmed details of the next single to be lifted from their forthcoming début mini-album In The Blink Of An Eye.
‘Wack Jack’ will be the band’s first offering from their long-player and will be released on October 27th, a week before the full album’s release.
Speaking about the release, iC1s vocalist Daniel Coburn explains:
“This song is about the fascination after loss and the extremes that can sometimes lead to… I knew that the moment we wrote the song it would connect with people of all ages as we have all been through something similar to a greater or lesser extent. We tried with the music to reflect the calmness of one side of the equation in the verses and the power and unpredictability of the other person in the chorus and I think we managed it pretty well”
The band are also set to hit the road with Dexters for a month long jaunt that will see them kick-off the tour at Liverpool’s EVAC on the 5th of November before finishing up with a homecoming performance at London’s Islington Assembly Hall on the 28th. The full tour dates are included below.
The band’s mini LP In The Blink Of An Eye will be released on November 3rd through Two Sisters Records. It will be available as a Standard Album on CD and digital formats, and an extended 12-track Deluxe Album, available digitally and via download code.
The London 5-piece have been given the thumbs up from members of The Libertines and Alan McGee and have previously supported the likes of The Charlatans, The Cribs, Frankie & The Heartstrings, Inspiral Carpets, The Family Rain and Darlia.
