Icon For Hire
Announce New Album Amorphous
Out Feb 19th via Kartel Music Group
New Single “Seeds” Out Now
Modern-rock giants Icon For Hire have today announced their third album, Amorphous, due February 19th. Additionally, the band have released the second single from the project, “Seeds,” a fierce and energetic call to arms.
Since forming in 2007, Icon For Hire (composed of singer Ariel Bloomer and guitarist Shawn Jump) have quietly amassed a legion of followers. Currently sitting at over half a million monthly listeners on Spotify and over 600,000 followers across social platforms, Icon For Hire are the sleeping giants of the modern rock scene, and are now ready to step into the forefront with new album Amorphous, available for pre-order now through Kartel Music Group.
New single “Seeds” is no different and speaks to how experiences of oppression can make us unstoppable. “It is an underdog anthem, using the ‘seeds’ analogy to empower those who have been neglected or ignored,” says Ariel. “Adversity making us stronger.” This is a theme the band has explored in previous songs like “You Can't Kill Us,” and Ariel's book Turn Your Pain Into Art.
For Amorphous the band worked with Grammy Nominated engineer Romesh Dodangoda (known for his previous work producing the last Bring Me The Horizon album as well as acts such as Don Broco, Busted,and Kids in Glass Houses).
The album has been completely funded by fans through a Kickstarter campaign that raised over $263k in just 30 days—making it one of the year’s highest-raising music campaigns. This success was achieved thanks to the bands highly dedicated fanbase that support them on Patreon and have been there for the band though thick, thin, litigation, addiction and more.
Having overcome both personal and professional adversity, 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.
