Think Fast! Records has officially announced the signing of Long Island, NY hardcore/punk band, Ice Age. Featuring current and former members of This Is Hell and The Backup Plan, the group's debut album is titled "Dead Kings" and will be available this summer.
Vocalist and founding member Jeff Tiu comments: "The best thing about this band is that we do whatever we want. With other bands I've been in there was always a goal in terms of touring a certain amount, attaining a certain level of success and so on. Everyone in Ice Age has either a full time band or a career which leaves us in the unique position - it's actually quite a luxury. No one likes us when we play? So what, we had fun. No one buys our merch? Who cares, I had fun designing it. We're not lighting up the message boards? Big deal. We're doing this because we love it and anything beyond that is just gravy."
Think Fast! co-owner Ryan O'Connor comments on the signing: "Jeff and I first met in 2005 when our bands bumped into each other on the road. We've remained friends ever since, and I've always been impressed with Jeff's musical talent. It was an easy decision to sign Ice Age and their debut album blew me away."
Tiu adds: "I had actually spoken with Ryan about putting out the record about a year ago, but we were in two different places at the time so we went ahead and recorded the album and found a local label to put it out. Just as we were about to go to mastering that label ran into to some financial trouble and things kind of fell apart. About a week later Ryan happened to call me about some printing stuff and we ended up talking about doing the record with Think Fast!. It was pretty serendipitous, but we really couldn't be happier. It's been extremely easy to work with those guys and I'd be hard pressed to think of a more solid hardcore label."
