Icon For Hire
Tooth & Nail Records proudly announces the signing of creative rock/pop talent, Icon For Hire. Female fronted and hailing from Decatur, IL, Icon For Hire is comprised of Ariel (vocals) Shawn Jump (guitar) and Adam Kronshagen (drums). Since 2007, the band has been establishing their strong following by touring extensively across the Mid-West. From the beginning, the band has written music with a positive view without downplaying the hardships in life, which is a vision the label understands and supports.

"We are thrilled to be joining such an established and well-respected group at Tooth & Nail," shares the band upon their signing. "It's a label that has a history of consistently putting out good music and really working side by side with their artists. Because we've been doing this thing on our own for over two years, it feels great to partner with Tooth & Nail. We can't wait to record our debut full-length and see where this road takes us."

Icon For Hire will be hitting the studios with famed producer Aaron Sprinkle (Anberlin, The Almost, Acceptance) this fall. Writing for the last several months, the band is anxious to get into the studio to formulate their sound of combining heavy, rock-oriented sounds and modern pop elements with a strong focus on the production.

"We feel like it's a common misconception among new bands that once a band gets signed, the hard work is over. We're approaching this completely different, we realize that now's when the real work begins and we're up for the challenge. We're three very driven people, and we're not gonna stop until we fulfill our goals."
Assuming We Survive
Assuming We Survive
Assuming We Survive is taking the world by storm, using raw passion and good old hard work has them becoming the new face of pop punk. Their roots run deep, rising up through the ranks from the local scene to national tours with big names such as Atreyu, Falling In Reverse, Attila, and many more. AWS was founded in 2007 by front-man Adrian Estrella and drummer Kris Pasos. The lineup is rounded out by bassist Joe Lawson with guitarists Phil Adams and Johnny Silva.
Refugee
Refugee
Refugee is a culmination of ideas for a new sound that breaks the mold of today’s modern Christian Metal/Rock. Refugee's sound is a rich hybrid style of modern rock blended with a refined metal. Down-tuned riffing and scorching guitar solos, topped with strong yet smooth female vocals by Noani. Damian Refuge also brings the occasional tasteful scream/ throaty grunts with his aggressive male vocals. Both vocalists stand strong alone, yet come together in great harmony and build up huge choruses that you won't forget. Refugee's spiritual lyrical content delves into the heart of man to ultimately reveal the heart of God. These collective elements make Refugee a truly original band.

Refugee's members are

Vocals and Guitar: Damian Refuge (Former vocalist/ guitarist for Man Of Sorrows and guitarist in Crush The Enemy)
