Heatwave is Baltimore hardcore band Trapped Under Ice’s 3rd full length album, released on their own Pop Wig Records label on July 21st, 2017.
In a description listed on the store webpage for the album, it has been described as such:
10 years after their first release, Trapped Under Ice brings you Heatwave. This phat LP is short, fast and hardcore; the way Straight Ahead intended, but played more like Fury of Five and Breakdown at a backyard party. For punks who’ve considered throwing a spin kick in jean shorts. Rhythmically, Heatwave is like a trailer park Sepultura. Check it out if you fuck with what TUI has been doing for the last decade. The same, but different.1
In an article written by Fred Passaro on CLRVYNT, vocalist Justice Tripp talked about the high hopes that people have for Heatwave:
“I think there are certain expectations when you do a new record, but it’s really about what we want to hear and not someone else” he admits. “The elements of hardcore and punk rock that I like and that Brendan likes, and Jared and Sam and Brad. It’s just our record, that’s it. The only message is our record, 100 percent. If you don’t fuck with it, don’t fuck with it. If you do, hell yeah.”1
