Pittsburgh, PA metal giants Icarus Witch have shared a lyric video for their new single, “10,000 Light Years from Home.” The sci-fi-themed track is taken from their upcoming folklore concept album, which is expected to arrive in 2023 via Cleopatra Records.
Founding member Jason Myers comments:
“Though written at the height of the global pandemic, the messages in ‘10,000 Light Years From Home’ ring truer today than ever before. The lyrics are taken from the ship’s log of a crew on a doomed space voyage. The story takes place in the near future when an elite group of global government officials as well as several of the world’s wealthiest business leaders, and foreign royals take flight on a mission to escape the planet they helped decimate while seeking to colonize new worlds to satiate their egos and personal fortunes. Will these intergalactic robber barons accomplish their selfish cosmic agenda, or will the prophecy of Gaia’s mysterious occult council prevail? Tune in to find out.”
