We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Icaria’s new song “Dilate Your Mind” (listen below), as well as announce the band’s signing to Cardigan Records. The song is taken from the band’s debut album Transcendent, which is scheduled to be released through the label.
Band members Ricky Free and Marc Harris comment on the song:
“In life, to doubt yourself and the direction you are headed can be a monumental struggle, sometimes more than others, but with ‘Dilate Your Mind’ we definitely wanted to tackle that disbelief and doubt.
We want, as individuals, as best friends and as brothers to stay positive and always moving forward, and to not succumb to negativity, worry, doubt and the like.
Ultimately, we all feel a very large part of what makes us who we are and who we become is predicated on how each person handles their own self doubt and disbelief and having a song written about that is pretty awesome to us.”

Much in the way the phoenix rises from the ashes of its own death and ending, so goes the way of the story of Icaria.
Formed out of the ashes of a dismembered group of musicians that had been together for years, Icaria came to be from the subtraction of and addition of members. With the lineup change, a new attitude was born, a new sound came to life, and a new band that would go on to announce its presence to the world of heavy music.
After recording their debut album Transcendent with engineer and co-producer Jamie King, the guys are ready to release the full length record with Cardigan Records on board to help them spread their sound across the world.
Be on the lookout for performances from Icaria all across the nation in support of the band’s debut.
