Scorched Reprise EP Launch

Lynotts Lounge, 100 Melbourne St Northbridge, WA, Australia 6003, Perth

Join Perth melodic metallers Icarus Lives for the launch of their brand-new EP ‘Scorched Reprise’ May 7th at Lynott’s Lounge. Representing a bold and assertive new direction, Icarus Lives are taking no prisoners with ‘Scorched Reprise’. Showcasing a tantalising blend of traditional metal and melodic rock elements, the band is unafraid to explore drama, angst and vulnerability amongst the flurry of ferocious riffs, monstrous solos, catchy melodies and pummelling rhythm sections. The EP launch will also feature local talent Diamond Sky, a riveting band that are sure to get you dancing all night. Our main support act is a surprise and will be announced soon! This isn’t an event you want to miss, save $$ by getting your ticket early

Icarus Lives introduced themselves to the stage with an eerie instrumental track that could be straight out of a Halloween horror movie. From the opening note, all band members were windmilling in sync while delivering thrashy guitar riffs and melodies that encouraged sing-a-longs. It’s always great to see women who rock and vocalist Sara Murray is clearly inspiring young women; She was seen taking photos with young fans at the conclusion of the bands set.”
