Icarus Witch return for sixth album ‘Goodbye Cruel World’



Icarus Witch have announced their sixth studio album Goodbye Cruel World. Out October 6th via Cleopatra Records, the record will be the band’s first in six years. It will also be the first record to feature new vocalist Andrew D’Cagna.

Founding bassist Jason Myers shared some insight into GCW. “Though the title ‘Goodbye Cruel World’ may sound like the first line of a suicide note, we actually see it in a positive light — bidding farewell to the past and to the negative things that anchored you or restrained you from discovering your best life,” he said. “Isn’t that what we all strive for in the end?”

Along with the news, the band also released the first single from the record, “Misfortune Teller”.

“Lyrically “Misfortune Teller” is about a hypothetical megalomaniac,” explained Myers. “It’s the story of a psychic vampire who will do and say anything to advance their own agenda, even if it means turning people against each other. Though, in this tale, the victims finally snap out of the spell and the villain is served their just karma.”

Myers added, “Musically, it’s a traditional banger, that invokes the fist-in-the-air arena rock of Jake-era Ozzy or early Dokken & Dio. It’s based around a couple shredding riffs that Quinn had been kicking around for ages. It’s those signature hooks that he’d naturally go to when soundchecking or trying out a new axe but just never found their way to a proper song structure… until now.”
