Icon For Hire To Headline “You Can’t Kill Us” Spring Tour

This one was a bit new to my musical ears but when it comes from a resource that you work with all the time you want to give it some focus and perhaps inspire your readership to give something new a chance. The group Icon For Hire is heading out on a headlining run that you can read all about down below.

The Press Release:
Icon for Hire have announced their Spring 2017 tour plans and the duo can’t wait to return to the road. The band will embark on a two-month trek with Assuming We Survive and October Sky in tow. The tour runs from early May through the end of June. The list of dates is below; there may be additional dates announced shortly.

Icon for Hire released You Can’t Kill Us in late 2016 via a fully-funded (and then some) crowd-funding campaign. Watch the video for “Supposed To Be”

“We’re so excited to be taking the ‘You Can’t Kill Us’ tour all over the country with Assuming We Survive and October Sky. We’ve been pushing our live show to new heights and we can’t wait to hang out with our fanbase — their passion is what makes touring so amazing!,” said Icon for Hire’s Ariel.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So I’ve already said that this was a new one for me so with that being the case I made sure to give it a quick overview care of Spotify. There is a strong Electronica meets Pop vibe but there are some rocking moments that fall along the lines of a Linkin Park and maybe even No Doubt since they have the lovely Ariel singing. One thing that I felt from these listens was that she has to be something else up on the stage and that makes me intrigued in terms of being a media fly on the wall. During my quick Spotify I played the CD and liked the tracks “Demons” and “Magic” the most right off the bat. The chorus on the last one reminded me a little of Maria Brink which is never a bad singer to be compared to IMHO. There are some Rap elements like we see in newer groups like From Ashes To New in case you are into that stuff. I’m going to give this a shot and wonder what you readers think about this one. Have you ever heard them before or maybe some of these openers? Let me know down in the comments where it counts the most.
