Ice Nine Kills are preparing for the release of their upcoming album The Silver Scream, out Friday, October 5 via Fearless Records. All of the album’s 13 anthems are based on 13 respective horror classics. The physical pre-order is available here.
The band has shared details on the upcoming release week events and shows.
From a listening party at Michael Myers‘ house to the St. Vitus album release performance to a private party at the Scream house, there are plenty of blood-chilling chances to see the band as we creep our way towards the Halloween season.
The album’s accompanying short film is also set to be screened.
Curious about that slashterpiece?
Here’s the deal. When the lead singer of Ice Nine Kills enlists a therapist to deal with disturbing dreams, bodies begin to pile up as reality mimics his slasher-movie-like nightmares. They say it’s hard getting into the movies — try getting out.
“I’m thrilled to get on the road and treat this release more like the rollout of a horror film than an album,” said singer Spencer Charnas. “We’ll be doing in-depth panels with the cast and crew, costume contests, screenings of the complete movie counterpart of the album, and killer red carpet-style events that diehard INK fans won’t want to miss out on.”
Below is the schedule of appearances, which are bound to delight those with hardcore horror movie fetishes.
Additionally, the band will hit the road with Atreyu and Memphis May Fire this fall. Those dates are also below.

INK previously issued the video for ‘Thank God It’s Friday.’ In the clip, the group (and a bunch of unsuspecting teenagers) visit Crystal Lake and that’s when all the trouble ensues. The video is a modern tribute to the classic Friday the 13th slasher series starring machete-wielding horror hero Jason Voorhees. Watch it here.
The band also shared the equally cinematic video for ‘The American Nightmare’ — a twisted and tasteful homage to director Wes Craven‘s A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. The video provides a thematic feast for children of the ’80s who grew up loving Freddie Krueger, the first film, and its sequels. It was directed by Daniel Hourihan and is the first installment of an over-arching film that will be a counterpart to the The Silver Scream. Watch it here.
Ice Nine Kills — the aforementioned Charnas , Justin DeBlieck , and Justin Morrow — hit the studio with producer Drew Fulk in Los Angeles in early 2018 and recorded The Silver Scream.
Through the art of intricate songwriting and elaborate storytelling, the Boston band has mastered the ability to engage and captivate listeners. Seamlessly weaving aggressive post-hardcore with soaring melodies, the band utilizes multi-textured guitar hooks, a dual vocal attack, complex orchestral arrangements and a pummeling rhythm section, which grabs the listener by the throat and refuses to let go.
The group’s 2015 offering, Every Trick In the Book, paid homage to a classic literary work and became Ice Nine Kills‘ biggest to date, bowing at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and in the Top 5 of the Hard Rock Albums and Independent Albums charts. Ice Nine Kills lived on the road, touring with Motionless In White, Every Time I Die, Chelsea Grin, Wage War, and more.
