IAMSOUND RECORDS artist IO ECHO's brilliant debut album Ministry of Love is out today in North America! The band has been working hard on this album for the past couple of years and we're excited to finally be able to release it. This has been a busy year for Io Echo, after touring with Bloc Party earlier this year, and the band currently being on the road with iconic '90s alt outfit Garbage. After the tour is done, they'll be playing Coachella in a couple of weeks, and then following that up with a tour supporting The Joy Formidable. We're also excited to announce that Io Echo will be playing Lollapalooza this year (August 2-4 in Chicago).
Ministry of Love, drawing from early '90s industrial, hazy pop and Eastern Classical orchestration (Japanese Koto and Chinese violin), has garnered accolades from NPR, Interview, Nylon, Stereogum, Paper, Dazed & Confused and many more. Be on the lookout for a video for the title track soon, and until then you can watch the video for "When The Lilies Die" HERE!
