We’re always hearing from fans who reallllllly want to come to a show, but their parents aren’t into it. So we thought we’d write dear mom or dad a letter you can show them to help you out. #yourewelcome


Dear mother/father/parental unit:

You did a great job raising your kid. They’re smart, funny, and they have awesome taste in music. That’s why they like this band called Icon For Hire (hi!) and you may have heard of us already especially if your kid has been begging you for weeks to let you come to our show.

You’re not sure though, and we get that. Concerts are scary, and dangerous, and what if your awesome kid loses her/his hearing and is affected for life?? That would suck. That’s why we’ve taken special care to make our concerts next level terrific.

Our shows are safe because we have a really caring fanbase, and if someone falls down, our fans know they gotta pick them up.

Our shows are inspirational because we are uniting together with the insane power of music.

Our shows are a good choice for your kid because they will leave feeling all excited about life and ready to take over the world.

Still not sure? You’re a tough one, but that’s ok. You can come too. We love parents. Parents are funny to watch when they try to head bang, or when they tell their kids about their old school ’70’s concert days.  Everyone is welcome.

So please let your kid experience a once-in-a-lifetime amazing live show experience and instantly become PARENT OF THE YEAR. Your kid will owe you so many chores and hugs for being this awesome.

Thanks for reading this, and we hope to see you at the show!

    Good morning. My son (16) and I (56!) attended your San Diego House of Blues show on the 21st. The tickets, and a CD were one of his birthday presents. He had shared with me over the summer his love for your music, as well as several of your songs, and I found that I too, enjoyed it.
    The messages in your songs are very inspiring and uplifting. I assume from the lyrics that you have been through a lot, and come out for the better.

    I must say I was very impressed with the performance last night. I had a really great time, and it was clear from my son’s headbanging, smiling, and singing along with every song that he had a fantastic time.

    Your music reaches him on a personal level. And as a adult who has – and still – deals with depression, I felt touched by the lyrics as well. “Turn your pain into art.” An apt title for a musical tour, a book, and – perhaps – life. ON a side note: As an teacher of English in San Diego, I thoroughly enjoyed hearing you read from your book during your set. There’s never a bad time to read!

    thank you again for helping me share a wonderful evening bonding with my son. I look forward to seeing you again when you return to San Diego. Best of luck on the rest of your tour…but as you said last night, “The rest of California is going to SUCK!”
