The self-titled, sophomore album by charismatic rock trio Icon For Hire was released last week on 10/15, and makes a big impact on this week's Billboard charts. Published today, the latest listings show Icon For Hire at #11 on the Top Independent Albums chart, #19 on Top Rock Albums, and at #65 on the overall Billboard 200. These are high-water marks for Icon For Hire on all three charts.

The band is ecstatic about this achievement, saying "Our new record was a risk...and our fans showed us that it was a risk worth taking. It was because of their amazing enthusiasm that our first week was a success."

The release of Icon For Hire was preceded by a successful tour, which found the band performing acoustically and electrically. In addition, "An Evening With Icon For Hire" featured a fashion show with designs from the Custom Catastrophes line, run by Icon For Hire's frontwoman, Ariel. The stylish Ariel also recently helped launch REL TV, a podcast that was featured on iTunes along with the Icon For Hire album. On the show, geared towards the younger female demo, Ariel brings her inspirational how-tos and motivating ideas to help you DIY (Do It Yourself) in every area of your life.

Icon For Hire is back on the road and touring through the end of November. Check out the dates below.
