Icon for Hire Announce New Album, On Tour This Fall!

Alt-rock duo Icon for Hire is thrilled to announce that they will be self-releasing their new album You Can’t Kill Us on November 25th, 2016. As a gift to their fan club, Icon for Hire released a brand new lyric video for their song “Under The Knife” via an exclusive live stream last Friday night. The video is now live, here: https://youtu.be/Sk6HMuLJ8bM. The band will be supporting the upcoming release with a full US headline tour featuring special guests Stitched Up Heart in October and November. For more information and a full list of dates, please visit: www.iconforhire.net.

On the new album, singer Ariel shares: “We created You Can’t Kill Us directly for our fans, which made us get more vulnerable than ever. Mental health, self-harm, addiction – no topic was off limits in the pursuit to connect with our listeners in the deepest way possible.”

Combining alternative rock with electronic and hip-hop elements, Icon for Hire presents a unique sound in the 21st century musical landscape. The band, consisting of vocalist Ariel and guitarist Shawn Jump, formed in 2007 following a chance meeting. They released their first full-length album Scripted in 2011, and followed it up in 2013 with their self-titled Icon for Hire, which reached #66 on Billboard’s Top 200 albums chart. In June 2015, Icon for Hire gained independence from their label, and performed on all of Vans Warped Tour for the second consecutive year.

Earlier this year the band launched a Kickstarter campaign in support of their new album,You Can’t Kill Us. The campaign went on to become the highest funded music campaign of 2016 to date, raising $127,000 of an initial $2,016 goal. Since then, Icon for Hire has been releasing three new tracks from the forthcoming album every three months.

Icon for Hire will release their new album You Can’t Kill Us on November 25th, 2016.
