Despised Icon refused to stay down. Back in 2010, they announced they were calling it quits and we were sad. Then, in 2014, they slowly started playing some shows. Well, I guess they really liked it because they've announced a full-fledged reunion.
The band shared the following on their social networks:
After playing a few reunion shows, we quickly realized that we wanted more. It’s time to pick up where we left off. We’re happy to announce that we’ll be part of this year’s Texas Independence Fest and Impericon Festivals. More news to come. Icon is back!
