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”

Ice Nine Kills Release “The Disney Revenge Show” Mini-Documentary

Back on April 26, 2019, Ice Nine Kills were supposed to play at the Disney-owned House Of Blues in Orlando, FL, but they ended up getting banned from the venue due to their dark imagery. The band then decided to fire back at Disney by staging a show at the SoundBar in Orlando, FL on July 25, 2019. A mini-documentary on that event has since been released and can be seen below:

Spencer Charnas commented:

“Looking back at the Disney incident fills me with nothing but laughter. When I first heard about the ban I was perturbed strictly because we love playing in that city. But rather than mope and cry about it, I had the idea to poke fun at the situation by creating a merch line of beloved Disney characters and inserting them in slasher movie scenarios. This mini documentary chronicles our triumphant sold out return to Orlando and the chaos that ensued…”

To celebrate the release of the documentary, the group have also launched their “Too Evil For Children II” merch capsule at nightmareontheninth.com.

Ice Nine Kills Share “Friday The 13th” Parody Of Fountains Of Wayne’s “Stacy’s Mom”

As part of Fearless Records‘ “Fearless At Home” virtual festival, Ice Nine Kills shared a “Friday The 13th” parody of Fountains Of Wayne’s “Stacy’s Mom,” which they called “Jason’s Mom.” Spencer Charnas commented:

“Today marks the 40th anniversary of Friday The 13th and with tomorrow being Mother’s Day, we thought this acoustic cover would be the perfect way to celebrate. We want to dedicate this to the memory of the inspirational songwriter Adam Schlesinger, who co-wrote this amazing and enduring pop song for Fountains Of Wayne. We hope all the Moms out there have a truly killer Mother’s Day.”
