Icon For Hire have announced the “An Evening With Icon for Hire” tour, which will launch nationwide on September 19 and wrapping October 11. “An Evening With Icon For Hire” will feature a night of music, fashion and entertainment with a pre-concert acoustic performance, an intimate Q&A with the group, a fashion show from Swedish-born frontwoman and fashion designer Ariel (R-E-L)’s Custom Catastrophes line wrapping up with a full concert of fan favorites and new songs from the group’s forthcoming LP due out this fall. Just before the ‘An Evening With Icon For Hire” trek, the hotly-tipped group will join Live Nation’s “Ones To Watch” tour beginning August 1 (see all dates below).

“We designed ‘An Evening With Icon For Hire’ to connect with our fans in the most intimate setting we could think of,” explains Ariel. “We’ve put a lot of work into making sure this is the most special tour we’ve ever done. It’s a dream!”

Icon For Hire - Ariel (R-E-L) (vocals), Shawn Jump (guitars), and Adam Kronshagen (drums) - have just put the finishing touches on their new studio album with producer Mike Green (All Time Low, The Wanted, Pierce The Veil), set for release Fall 2013.

The group’s debut album Scripted marked a milestone in Tooth & Nail Records history as the highest charting debut for a new artist on the label. The album debuted at No 4 on the iTunes Rock chart, and No 19 overall and on the Billboard chart . The band’s videos for “Make A Move and “Get Well” went onto receive over 6 million views on YouTube.
