(Atom Splitter) Dead Icarus, the new project of former Atreyu lead vocalist and Gold-selling artist Alex Varkatzas, has officially signed a worldwide deal with MNRK Heavy.

To herald this exciting news, Dead Icarus have shared the video for the new single "Sellout." The track is a hyperkinetic slab of fast-paced, face-ripping metal with layered vocals and a pit-clearing breakdown. The song shows off a different side of the artist's musical personality. It hits hard, but it's also infused with a melody that just won't quit.

This is the first taste of new music, with a full-length project slated for Spring 2024. Scott Givens, MNRK's SVP of Rock & Metal, says, "Alex's new project has our whole Heavy team excited. He has put together an incredible project with an amazing group of musicians."

Alex says, "I am beyond excited and grateful for DEAD ICARUS to be joining the MNRK Heavy family. MNRK understands my musical vision and has provided me with free reign over all aspects of my musical journey. I cannot wait to share what has been created as a result of this unadulterated trust. This is the most honest, painful, angry, and optimistic music I have ever created. This is my road to redemption and the truth."
