Icon For Hire presents: YOU CAN’T KILL US

It's all happening... March 15 | June 15 | Sept 15 | Dec 15 2016

Thank you so much for taking the time to support this project. More than just an album, YOU CAN’T KILL US is a new era for Icon For Hire. By now, a lot of you know the challenges we faced (and overcame!) in 2015 and many of you are facing your own challenges. So, we decided to do something very special for our fans in 2016 — something NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE on Kickstarter — YOU CAN’T KILL US will be a year long album launch.

A very special campaign for Icon For Hire fans never been done before on Kickstarter!
A very special campaign for Icon For Hire fans never been done before on Kickstarter!

Rather than a traditional album release, YOU CAN’T KILL US will be released to our fans throughout 2016 as the songs happen! Kickstarter supporters will receive 3 songs (w/cover artwork) each quarter, starting NOW! — March 15 | June 15 | September 15 | December 15 + a lot of great gifts to share with you to say THANK YOU. At the end of the year, we will have a full length album + bonus tracks!

Worldwide Touring in 2016 — We want to see YOU: USA, Canada, Europe, Russia, SE Asia, South America

We decided to put $2016 as the goal as a symbol that this is OUR year together. Even though it’s going to take much more than that, we decided to trust our fans because you’ve always gone above and beyond. We are always being told that we have one of the most dedicated fan bases. So, we’ll leave it up to YOU!

Let’s break Kickstarter records!
Let’s break Kickstarter records!

And we have GOOD NEWS — We’ve already taken the first steps, flown to Los Angeles and recorded the first three songs with multiplatinum producer, Mike Green. (All Time Low, MC YOGI) The tracks “Here We Are,” “You Were Wrong,” and “Supposed To Be” are available for download as soon as you back this project!

And we’re ready to record the next NINE! We’re so excited to share these new songs as they happen + we’ve spent months designing the best possible Kickstarter rewards for our fans. We hope you love it!

With our newfound freedom, we’ve never felt so inspired creatively and lyrically. With your support, we will deliver the best experience for our fans ever — one that will change lives and turn the music industry upside down — YOU CAN’T KILL US! —


ICON FOR HIRE & MusiCares: COUNTING ON HEARTS LIKE YOURS

We’ve been lucky in life to have fans like YOU. You’ve helped us through the most challenging times. MusicCares has also been there for us. MusiCares is dedicated to providing confidential emergency health and human services and addiction recovery programs to music people in need. They are here 365 days a year to care for the health of the music community. MusicCares is near and dear to ICON FOR HIRE and we’d be blown away if this campaign raised awareness for their life saving work. Let us know if you get involved! :) https://www.grammy.org/musicares

Risks and challenges

We will have a team including the band and volunteers to get your rewards to you on time! We intend to get all backers our new songs BEFORE anyone else gets their hands on them. Because without you none of this would be possible.
