Icon For Hire
Icon For Hire
Despite their name, ICON FOR HIRE aren’t indebted to anyone but their
fans. Since forming in 2007, the duo—singer Ariel Bloomer and guitarist
Shawn Jump—have amassed a legion of followers who have connected
with not only the band’s genre-bending sound, but also their honesty.
That soul-baring spirit and realism is at the heart of everything Icon For
Hire do, and it’s front and center on their latest Billboard-charting
release, YOU CAN’T KILL US. Produced by Mike Green (Gwen Stefani, All
Time Low) and funded by fans through Kickstarter on a campaign that
raised $127, 200—making it one of the year’s highest-raising music
campaigns—the self-released album marks a brand-new chapter for the
band. Blending hard rock, hip-hop, electronica and pop into an anthemic
swirl of both melody and muscle, You Can’t Kill Us isn’t only a modern
sounding record—it’s awash in lyrical themes that tap into the times as
well. Addiction, depression and self-worth are all topics Ariel addresses
and these themes reverberate loudly in today’s tumultuous, judgmentfirst
culture. After all, having survived the record label system and
reemerged stronger than ever, Icon For Hire are living proof that you
can take control of your life—and that’s perhaps the greatest success
anyone can hope to accomplish.
