Disney Bans Ice Nine Kills From Orlando House Of Blues, Band Fire Back With New Merch Line

Ice Nine Kills have apparently been banned from performing at the Disney owned House Of Blues in Orlando, FL. As a result, the band have decided to fire back with a new merch line featuring Disney charterers dressed as characters from various horror films. You can see what they have to offer at

The group commented:

“As many of you know a certain mouse-loving enterprise has deemed us too “evil”, to perform at a certain Orlando venue of theirs. Rather than protest, we are accepting this seemingly misguided assumption with great honor. To celebrate the banishment, we are dedicating our ‘Nightmare on the Ninth’ monthly special to the launch of

Check out our most devilish designs yet, and bask in the darkness of Lucifer, with your favorite horror-loving psychopaths. These shirts are extremely limited and will never be available online again.”

Bassist Justin Morrow Leaves Ice Nine Kills To Join Motionless In White

Justin Morrow has announced his departure from Ice Nine Kills. He is leaving the group to join Motionless In White as their full-time bassist.

Morrow said the following:

“After ten rewarding years of creating music with Ice Nine Kills, the band and I have made the mutual decision to part ways. I am forever thankful for the memories, experiences, and friendships made along the way. Looking forward, as many of you know I have recently been filling in for bass in Motionless In White, and today I am proud to announce that I will be joining Motionless full time as the new bass player. Once again, thank you to all of the friends and fans. Though I am no longer with INK, I wish them the best of luck with future endeavors.”

Ice Nine Kills added:

“Over the last 6 months our bass player, Justin Morrow, has been filling in for Motionless In White. After much consideration, we have mutually decided to part ways and Justin will be moving forward as the bass player for Motionless in White. We are excited for Justin and wish him nothing but the best!

Meanwhile, we are pleased to announce that filling Justin’s shoes will be ex-Venetia Fair member pianist/vocalist, Joe Occhiuti, who co-wrote some of ‘The Silver Scream’ and who has been a part of the extended INK family for many years. Joe brings with him an extensive multi instrument musical background and will not only be taking over bass duties, but will be contributing keys and back-up vocals, breathing even more insanity into the INK live show. We’ll see you on the road all Spring on the ‘March Into Madness‘ and ‘Episode III‘ tours!”

Motionless In White also commented:

“MIW fans,

As many of you know, for the past few months we have be performing with our very close friend Justin Morrow, who has been filling in for our vacant bass player position. After much time spent between our band and Justin, and seeing the support of many fans who have watched him perform with us, we are honored to announce that he has made the decision to join us full time as our new bass player.

He has been a perfect fit both on and off stage and we could not be happier to enter our new album cycle feeling complete once again. For more information from Justin directly, please visit his IG @Justiniceninekillerz, and for our friends in Ice Nine Kills, please visit their Facebook page to read their announcement. As always, thank you for your support, and we’ll see you on the road this year.


Ice Nine Kills Pay Tribute To Late Bassist Shane Bisnett With Song & Benefit Shirt

Ice Nine Kills guitarist Justin “JD” DeBlieck has paid tribute to the late Shane Bisnett by recording a song titled “Sunrise.” The track was written by Bisnett back in 2007 and the new version is available HERE under the name Fallbrook. In other news, Ice Nine Kills have also released a new shirt to raise money for Bisnett’s family.

DeBlieck commented:

“Twelve years ago, I met one of my best friends. He was kind, fun, unique, full of happiness, thoughtful, and by far the most talented person I’ve ever met. From the moment we were introduced in the spring of 2006 at Finger Lakes Community College, we were inseparable. We spent days and nights creating music and summers at our parents houses planning out our lives like kids in love with a dream.”

“After some time apart, Shane sent me some songs he had been working on. One of which was called ‘Sunrise.’ I immediately drove to Potsdam, N.Y. and convinced Shane to pack up his belongings and move to Rochester with me, where we would soon find ourselves traveling the country together in Ice Nine Kills. This song is extra special to me because it’s a reminder of the raw talent and simplicity of Shane‘s musical brilliance.

Among the many songs he shared with me, I chose to recreate this one because he left me a way to include him at the end. Although a bit haunting, I feel at peace knowing that his voice can be heard one last time. He left us too soon, but with this song, he’ll have marked his stamp in history. R.I.P. Shane. We’ll miss you.”
