Assuming We Survive and Icon For Hire wrap the second leg of the You Can’t Kill Us Tour in Minneapolis

American rock band Icon For Hire wrapped up the second leg of the You Can’t Kill Us Tour this past weekend at the Triple Rock Social Club in Minneapolis, in support of their November 2016 independent release “You Can’t Kill Us.” Southern California pop-punk band Assuming We Survive and Montreal based electronic rock band October Sky opened on the tour, although October Sky did not play at the Minneapolis date.

Consisting of vocalist Ariel Bloomer and guitarist Shawn Jump, with current touring drummer Ryan Seaman, Icon For Hire plaid an incredible and intimate show at the Triple Rock. Bloomer, Jump, and Seaman displayed a true sense of closeness and cohesiveness on stage, as their performance felt effortless and flowed perfectly from one song to the next. Icon For Hire played a mix of songs off of all three of their releases, albeit a majority from “You Can’t Kill Us,” even giving fans a choice of hearing an acoustic performance of either “Make a Move” or “War” decided by the volume of cheers for the songs as the titles were announced. The band added to the intimate vibe of the show by inviting three members of the crown on stage to sing along to “Now You Know.”

Assuming We Survive was the only opener of the evening, playing a set full of fast paced pop-punk balanced out by a sprinkle of slow songs. Composed of Adrian Estrella (vocals), Kris Pasos (drums), Phil Adams (guitar), Joe Lawson (bass), and Johnny Silva (guitar), Assuming We Survive made their set feel like a small hometown show, as each member expressing a passion for their music and feeding their energy to the eager crowd. Even though a significant proportion of the crowd had not seen Assuming We Survive live before, it did not deter the band from making a connection with each member of the audience, with Estrella even performing a song in the middle of the crowd and engaging several people in his memorable on stage antics.
