ICARUS WITCH To Open For Y&T 2010 Summer Tour

Pittsburgh rockers ICARUS WITCH have been confirmed to open for Y&T’s upcoming July/August 2010 tour! Long-time rock icons Y&T will be touring in support of Facemelter, their first studio album in 13 years on Frontiers Records. ICARUS WITCH will continue promoting their recent release, Draw Down The Moon, this time with former Dirty Looks guitarist/backing vocalist, Christopher Shaner as the new frontman and DiAnno guitarist, Ed Skero on 2nd lead guitar.

“It’s a good thing we didn’t unpack out bags from the Paul DiAnno tour yet because we just got word from Brian Perera at Cleopatra Records that ICARUS WITCH is confirmed to tour America once again” states ICARUS WITCH bassist Jason Myers. “This July & August we will be crisscrossing the country opening for one of our all-time favorite bands, Y&T! Their classics like ‘Mean Streak,’ ‘Midnight In Tokyo,’ ‘Forever,’ ‘Don’t Stop Runnin’ and ‘Summertime Girls’ have always been the perfect soundtrack to summer partying. Now we’ll get to hear them played at full volume in a different city every night after warming up the crowds. See you on the road!”

Having become somewhat of a buzz band on the underground rock circuit for years, ICARUS WITCH have received recent praise from widely recognized music icons such as comedian/actor, Brian Posehn, That Metal Show’s Don Jamieson and more. ICARUS WITCH’s album Draw Down The Moon is now available for a limited time to stream in its entirety at: http://www.myspace.com/icaruswitch.
