Icon for Hire – The Reckoning 
Icon for Hire The Reckoning Track List
The Reckoning is the fifth studio album by American rock band Icon for Hire, released on September 30, 2022 through their own label of the same name. The leitmotif of the creation of The Reckoning album, the performers called the study of all hidden and dark corners of the soul, which we must not only understand, but take them for granted. On April 15, 2022, the first single called Ready For Combat is released. This is an explosive mixture of daring and militant chaos of hard rock with great vocals. This song gets your blood pumping and showcases the great sound of Icon for Hire. On June 15, 2022, the duo announced their new album, consisting of 13 tracks, and released the second single Dismantled, written in a dark atmosphere of a poignant branch of emotional rock. According to vocalist Ariel Bloomer, the idea for the song came from the depths of my soul, when I was very lonely and just sat on the couch for a long time. At that time, it seemed that everything around was collapsing, breaking, and it was as if I myself were being divided into parts. I transferred this feeling to the piano and so a new ballad was born. And exactly a month later, on July 15, 2022, the next video from Icon For Hire – Breakdown was released, which continued to develop the success of two recently released singles and video clips for them. Featuring collaborations with Breaking Benjamin's Keith Wallen and superb mixing from Joe Rickard of Red (2008-2014) and Swedish metal band In Flames (2016-2019), The Reckoning boasts Ariel Bloomer's most furious vocals to date and inimitable guitar style by Shawn Jum.
