Ice Nine Kills Premiere Music Video For New Song “Hip To Be Scared” Featuring Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix

Ice Nine Kills have premiered a new video for their new song “Hip To Be Scared.” The “American Psycho”-inspired track features Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix and it will appear on the band’s new album “The Silver Scream 2: Welcome To Horrorwood,” which is set to be released on October 15.

Ice Nine Kills’ Spencer Charnas commented:

“True to horror franchise tradition, there is always a sequel…’Welcome To Horrorwood‘ follows in the bloody footsteps of its predecessor, paying tribute to 13 more of the most gruesome tales to ever grace the silver screen. In this latest INK offering, the last album and video series is portrayed as a work of fiction. The new story line thrusts the band into a brutal “real world” slaying. The only traces of the crime are 13 songs left behind by the suspected killer…

We can’t wait to share this next chapter with you, and to welcome you to the sinister state of mind that will soon be known the world over as, ‘Horrorwood‘.

The first stop on the tour is 1980’s New York City’s ‘greed is good’ scene, where a certain hot shot investment banker has a rather violent dirty secret…”

Ice Nine Kills Celebrate 24th Anniversary Of Classic Slasher Film “Scream” With New Mini-Documentary

Ice Nine Kills Premiere “Rocking The Boat” Live Video

“This particular song was a highlight every night to me. I mean, How often do you get to antagonize one of your crew members while they’re wearing a large inflatable shark costume in front of a couple thousand people?”

Spencer Charnas commented:

“The Worcester Palladium holds a very special place in the heart of INK’s history. On September 22nd, 2000, I attended a Goldfinger/Mest concert there that changed the course of my life. I knew after that incredibly high-energy show that I wanted to dedicate my life to writing and performing my own music.

One year later, INK’s first show would take place on the very same stage at a battle of the bands that we did not win. The concert is pictured in this album insert. 18 years later we sold out the very same 3,000 capacity venue and recorded this live album there—a full circle moment that I will never forget. This album is dedicated to the INK psychos who allow us to make murder and mayhem an actual career.”

Ice Nine Kills Announce New Acoustic EP, Premiere Video For Acoustic Version Of “Enjoy Your Slay”

Ice Nine Kills will be releasing a new acoustic EP, titled “Undead & Unplugged: Live From The Overlook Hotel,” tomorrow (June 26). The effort was recorded during a special performance at The Stanley Hotel, the building that inspired The Overlook Hotel in “The Shining.” A video for “Enjoy Your Slay” from the set can be found below:

Spencer Charnas commented:

“We decided to release this EP now to celebrate the 40th anniversary of ‘The Shining‘, one of the most influential horror movies of all time. As a life-long horror fan, I was thrilled when we were able to enlist the help of Stanley Kubrick‘s grandson, Sam to provide guest vocals on the original version of our track, ‘Enjoy Your Slay‘ and we were equally thrilled when The Stanley Hotel invited us to play in their infamous ballroom for this special, intimate, sold-out fan event.

The biggest highlight for me was getting to see the real Room 237 (217 in the book), the setting for one of the most terrifying scenes in ‘The Shining‘. We got some intel from an employee who told us that whilst shooting ‘Dumb and Dumber‘, which also features The Stanley Hotel, Jim Carey had insisted on staying in room 217 but got so freaked out on the first night, he had leave the room.

We’d like to thank 107.9 KBPI for helping to make this show a possibility and all the Colorado Psychos that came out to make this intimate, unplugged show so special.”

Here’s the full track listing:

01. “Savage”
02. “Thank God It’s Friday”
03. “A Grave Mistake”
04. “Love Bites”
05. “Enjoy Your Slay”
