Despite their name, ICON FOR HIRE arent indebted to anyone but their fans. Since forming in 2007, the duosinger Ariel Bloomer and guitarist Shawn Jumphave amassed a legion of followers who have connected with not only the bands genre-bending sound, but also their honesty. That soul-baring spirit and realism is at the heart of everything Icon For Hire do, and its front and center on their latest Billboard-charting release, YOU CANT KILL US. Produced by Mike Green (Gwen Stefani, All Time Low) and funded by fans through Kickstarter on a campaign that raised $127, 200making it one of the years highest-raising music campaignsthe 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 Cant Kill Us isnt only a modern sounding recordits 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 todays tumultuous, judgment-first 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 lifeand thats perhaps the greatest success anyone can hope to accomplish.-Evan Lucy
