The sophomore full-length, self-titled studio album from Icon for Hire features more of the Decatur, Illinois alternative metal band's passionate, high-energy music. Produced by Mike Green (Pierce the Veil, All Time Low, the Wanted), the album follows up the band's 2011 Tooth & Nail debut, Scripted. Once again showcasing frontwoman Ariel's resonant vocal chops, the album finds the band amping up its fiery rock production with an electronic-infused sound. Included on the album are the singles "Cynics & Critics" and "Sugar & Spice."
