Following the release of their critically acclaimed debut album ‘New Born Lie’ in 2009, I.C.O.N have consistently gone from strength to strength, continuing to build their fanbase across the UK and mainland Europe.
I.C.O.N have so far shared the stage with Breed77, Blaze Bayley, Warrior Soul, Voodoo Six, Diamond Head, Furyon, Witchfynde, Logan and Zico Chain, amongst many other great rock and metal bands. Their music can be found on the smash PC off road driving game MOTORM4X.
Stunning, exciting live festival appearances, coupled with a strong work ethic, and literally hundreds of live shows have firmly established I.C.O.N as one of the UK’s fastest rising, hardest working, genuine, gritty metal acts.
‘New Born Lie’ has sold consistently well and 2015 will see the release of the much anticipated follow-up album, and a comprehensive touring schedule.
