For 15 years Icarus Witch have been delivering dark stylish melodic hard rock. In 2012, the Pittsburgh, PA-based band released its fifth CD, RISE, internationally through Cleopatra Records. Icarus Witch has appeared on numerous high-profile compilations and collaborated with several guest stars including Joe Lynn Turner (Rainbow/Deep Purple), George Lynch (Dokken) & Frank Aresti (Fates Warning).
The band has toured North America multiple times, played in Europe and performed with the likes of Black Sabbath, Queensrÿche, Amorphis, Coheed & Cambria, Twisted Sister and more. Many headbangers got their first exposure to the Witch on back-to-back tours as both the support AND backing band for original Iron Maiden vocalist, Paul DiAnno. With a press kit that features glowing reviews from publications such as Classic Rock Magazine, Guitar World, Outburn, and Blabbermouth--as well as top 20 loud radio chart action--Icarus Witch continue to evolve and perfect their unique traditional metal song writing.
Their newest album, Goodbye Cruel World, sees the band steering their craft slightly back toward their original classic metal realm. Yet with a completely new vocal, drumming and production approach, their 6th album is guaranteed to take the group to exciting new places sonically. Follow now, the best is yet to come!
