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.
