The Ice Creams were formed as a recording project some ten years ago in November of 2008 as the “long forgotten bastard side-child” of Athens garage group The Humms and self proclaimed “Scooby Punk-rockers” are ecstatic to finally announce the first release since their limited edition single via Gumball Machine Records.
The long awaited extended player is comprised of 6-songs making up the self titled record [The Ice Creams EP]
“Here’s a newly posted video from a group called The Ice Creams, for a little ditty titled ‘Everyone’s Got a Skeleton.’ The band, which features Zeke Sayer and Matthew Garrison of local band The Humms as well as drummer Stephen Findley, plays a slightly more saccharine version of The Humms’ earworm-y garage-punk, impossibly catchy and lean as white meat.” – Gabe Vodicka – Flagpole magazine
The Ice Creams EP drops on November 13th via Gypsy Farm Records but you can pre-order and stream the EP now in it’s entirety below via bandcamp.

Athens GA “Scooby Pop” outfit known as “THE ICE CREAMS” have released a music video in percolation to their long-over due Gypsy single “Everyone’s Got A Skeleton“, slated for release later this year.
The skeleton song in particular is a chop-charmed blend of 50’s pop that could be collecting dust on the shores of Leso Island, bound by it’s barbaric beat.
Folks first caught sound of the band via Myface in 2008 and later, making their debut on 2012’s GYPNOSIS compilation.
