Ice Nine Kills have premiered a new live video for their “IT” inspired song “It Is The End.” The clip was filmed at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, CA and it features members of Reel Big Fish. The track appears on Ice Nine Kill’s latest album “The Silver Scream.”
Spencer Charnas commented:
“Ever since I was a teenager, I’ve been completely immersed in the punk ska scene. Reel Big Fish and Less Than Jake have always been two of my favorites of the genre. To have Buddy and JR from Less Than Jake perform the horns on the album, and then to get Matt and Johnny from Reel Big Fish to join us on stage live were two truly special experiences.
This is one of my favorite tracks we’ve ever recorded because IT takes two genres that are almost diametrically opposed, metal and ska, and puts them together in a really unexpected way. It also pays tribute to the fact that Ice Nine Kills was originally a ska band, and although we are a heavier band today, I still wear that influence on my bloody sleeves.”
In other news, Ice Nine Kills have also announced that they will be screening the music video for their “Friday The 13th” inspired song “Thank God It’s Friday” at a 35th anniversary screening of “Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter.” The group will also perform the track acoustically at the event, which set to take place at Ahrya Fine Arts by Laemmle in Beverly Hills, CA on July 27.
