Hello, we’re a band from Decatur, Illinois called icon for hire. We started this thing because we wanted to articulate the mad & lonely thoughts circling our heads....and when we did, we realized how un-alone we actually were. Our band started growing one kid at a time as we played dark basements and hardcore shows around the Midwest. We eventually signed with a label, which led to filing bankruptcy and reclaiming our independence. We now rely on the love and support of our fans to continue making music.
So instead of a throwing up fancy bio in 3rd person, we thought we’d just take a second and thank everyone who cares about our music. It means a lot to us. We’re able to tour the world, stay sane, and keep being totally independent, because we know our fans have our back. Icon Army for life 💗
Keep checking back because we’re releasing a lot new music and not slowing down. And if you feel like saying hey over on a social platform, we always love hearing from you. Xoxo. Ariel & Shawn
