Iceage is a punk rock band from Copenhagen, Denmark. Signed to What's Your Rupture? Records, their debut album New Brigade was released in January 2011 in Denmark and on June 21, 2011, in the US. New Brigade has been well-received by critics. Pitchfork Media gave the album an 8.4 and the rating of Best New Music, saying that "[...]New Brigade is a refreshing and extraordinary debut. These four have located a punk-rock sweet spot: mixing the black atmosphere of goth, the wild-limbed whoosh of hardcore, and the clangor of post-punk. It's a feat made all the more impressive by one very important intangible: energy.".

The Washington Post also praised the debut, saying that "In an era of rock-gone-easy-listening and endless reunions, “New Brigade” is a reminder of how powerful a noisy, new band with something to prove can sound. The kids maintain an unrelenting intensity throughout the album’s 12 songs."
