Biography

“Horrendously catchy” Rock Sound

“Let's dance about like rocking idiots. Catchy as fucking fuck.” Subba Cultcha

“...now expanded to a Four piece, these Leicester pop punkers are true contenders.” Big Cheese

“It's superhero music... I can imagine it in a marvel film. I'm sure you will do well.” Tom Meighan from Kasabian

Having spent the last two years touring the whole of the UK and Europe with the likes of The Specials, Kids In Glasshouses, Fightstar, Enter Shikari and Wheatus, Ictus have built a large and loyal fan base that is devoted to the their catchy and melodic punk rock music and fun loving ethos. Serious about becoming national favourites and realising their massive potential, Ictus release their second album The Grand Glorification of Sound on One Two Productions in October 2010.

Following on from the early success that saw them signed by Neville Staples, legendary singer for The Specials, to the Sony BMG subsidiary label Rude Boy Music, the band released their debut album Punk Rock for Girls in 2006 to critical acclaim and awesome live reviews. Fast forward to 2008 and after extensive touring with some huge bands the label had unfortunately folded, leaving the band unsigned but determined still to succeed. After much writing and discussion the band decided in 2009 to expand from a three piece to a four piece, expanding and developing their signature sound and releasing the five track EP Handmade and Homegrown that was celebrated by the likes of Big Cheese Magazine and Subba Cultcha

The Grand Glorification of Sound is a perfect illustration of their ability to wire their ambitious guitar sound with powerful vocal melodies and memorable lyrical rhetoric. They have mastered the art of writing songs that encompass epic choruses, weaving guitar parts and tight drum patterns, ensuring every song on their debut is just as infectious as the next. Their melodic rock, pop punk sound is sure to appeal to fans of bands such as You Me at Six, Kids in Glass Houses and Blink 182.
