The self-titled, sophomore album by charismatic rock trio Icon For Hire arrives in stores and online today. The album has already been preceded by a successful tour, which found the band performing acoustically and electrically. In addition, "An Evening With Icon For Hire" included a fashion show featuring designs from the Custom Catastrophes line, run by Icon For Hire's frontwoman, Ariel. Recently, more Icon For Hire tour dates were announced, running through late November.

Of the new album, which is currently sitting in the Top 5 of the iTunes Alternative chart, the Milwaukee Sentinel-Journal states "Icon For Hire's second LP has its ace, the snarky and charismatic Ariel, right on the table."

Ariel says: ""We want to thank our fans! They really are the best and hope they will love where we are going with this new album and come along for the ride."

About the composition of the album Icon For Hire, the band adds "after 18 months of touring and lots of journaling, we went away to write our most vulnerable music yet. We are not a one dimensional band so we didn't write a one dimensional record."

About Icon For Hire: Icon For Hire's debut album, Scripted, marked a milestone in Tooth & Nail Records history as their highest charting debut album. The album debuted on the Billboard 200 Album chart, peaked at # 4 on the iTunes Rock chart, and charted at # 19 overall. Their videos for "Make A Move and "Get Well" have received over 6 million views on YouTube.
