Icon For Hire
HOLLYWOOD, CA – June 2013 – ICON FOR HIRE are in the studio with Producer Mike Green (All Time Low, The Wanted, Pierce The Veil) to follow up their debut album, Scripted.
Released in 2011, Scripted shattered first week sales becoming the highest new artist debut in Tooth & Nail Records history. The record debuted on the Billboard Top 200, at No. 4, on the iTunes Rock chart, and No. 19 on the iTunes overall albums chart.
After spending a remarkable 18 months touring around the world, the group returned to their hometown of Decatur, IL to write their new record. ICON FOR HIRE is set to push the boundaries of music and fashion far beyond their debut. According to guitarist, Shawn Jump, "We wrote and dreamed about this record away from everything. We needed a safe place where we could all get to "spirit," and maximize our different influences." Added drummer, Adam Kronshagen, "There's been undeniable friction in the songwriting process. We love knowing that you will definitely hear the element of conflict inside of every song we wrote."
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼The bands latest video, "Off With Her Head," received 200k views its first week. Frontwoman and fashion designer, Ariel, worked with the team for weeks to create an avant-garde interpretation of the hit song. The group spent two days in Compton, CA (South Los Angeles) filming the video with a variety of the hottest underground artists.
ICON FOR HIRE has become a cyber hit with their previous videos, "Make a Move" and "Get Well," nearing 6 million views combined on YouTube.
￼￼￼￼Back on the road – Summer 2013...
