Their fifth album, 'Seek Shelter', is out on May 7 via Mexican Summer, and in the build up Iceage have shared 'Shelter Song', the record's opening track.

Featuring the Lisboa Gospel Collective, the cut comes with a new music video directed by Catherine Pattinama Coleman, who previously worked with the band on their 'Ecstasy' and 'Forever' visuals.

“As a childhood friend of theirs, it was important for me to showcase our friendship and the people we share everyday life with,” said Coleman in a statement. “So instead of making a video full of symbolism or a staged performance, I wanted to make a private and personal video close to our hearts. 

"After a crazy year of COVID-19, the world in flames and structural racism peaking at such an extent, I wanted to create a meaningful piece, especially being a woman of color and fully in my third trimester. In the midst of a pandemic it’s important to remember that those of us who are privileged enough to have a roof over our heads, food, security, love and care, is something of great value. Love is not something one should not take for granted.”
