Crown The Empire’s removal from the trek is seemingly related to abuse allegations that were leveled against guitarist Brandon Hoover. The alleged victim said the following about those accusations:

“When Brandon stood over me LAUGHING and screaming over and over that I was a cheating slut and he was done with me while I sobbed in the fetal position trying to protect myself because he had already thrown me across the room into a dresser and left me covered in bruises… he had already begun replacing me with the girl he is now dating. He gaslit me entirely for feeling confused and upset when he took me out of his music video in favor of casting “some random girl” who acted weird around me on set until I had to leave for work… it wasn’t until months after our breakup I finally realised who she was and how she was completely part of his life so quickly after we separated. After that incident spanned an entire night, he claimed to black out whilst still conscious and couldn’t remember what he did to me. He begged me to forgive him and promised to quit drinking and get into therapy. I knew I wasn’t safe but I loved him so much I tried to let him change. Two weeks later he was drinking again on tour, lying about it every day to me and telling me how much he was resenting me for being the reason he had to stop (he hadn’t stopped). When he finally admitted it a day before I was to fly out to be with him on tour he expected me to cave like I always had, forgive and accept his violation of my boundaries and “trust” him, and put myself in further danger. Saying I couldn’t take it anymore was the hardest thing I ever had to do because my love was real, the person I felt it for just didn’t exist. He was simply a figment of the manipulation he created to keep me around while I gave over everything I had to him for a year. I truly don’t know how to escape this nightmare. I will never be the same, and he is doing everything in his power to silence me. I’ll probably wake up tomorrow and this account will be gone too. Please follow me on TikTok and Twitter – @bambimaryjane and @downlowbambi He wants me to disappear and I’m starting to feel like I should. Share this if you’re able.”

Ice Nine Kills Premiere “The Shower Scene” Music Video

Ice Nine Kills have premiered a new video for their song “The Shower Scene.” The “Psycho”-inspired track is from the band’s latest album “The Silver Scream 2: Welcome To Horrorwood.” The video features Nadia Teichmann, Victoria Potter Worsnop, Joe Bob Briggs (“Casino,” “The Last Drive In”), Scout Taylor-Compton (“Halloween”), Bill Moseley (“The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2,” “The Devil’s Rejects”), and Ricky Dean Logan (“Freddy’s Dead,” “Back To The Future Part II”). Frontman Spencer Charnas commented:

“While paying tribute to perhaps the most influential horror film of all time, Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘Psycho,’ we simultaneously continue the INK Horrorwood Saga we began exactly a year ago to the day. Will this be the end? Or is the next chapter just right around the cororner…”

Mötley Crüe, Asking Alexandria, Ice Nine Kills, & From Ashes To New Members Featured On “The Retaliators Theme Song (21 Bullets)”

The theme song has been released for the upcoming horror film “The Retaliators.” The track, which is titled “The Retaliators Theme Song (21 Bullets),” features members of Mötley Crüe, Asking Alexandria, Ice Nine Kills, and From Ashes To New and an official video for it can be found below. As previously reported, the film will be released on September 14, while the soundtrack will be released on September 16. More details on both can be found HERE. Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx commented on the theme song:

“Writing a new theme song for a horror flick was inspiring. This was my first time writing for a horror-thriller film, and it took me in a different direction from the first theme song I wrote – ‘The Dirt (1981)‘ by Mötley Crüe. I worked with some great new artists to create a new sound that will stretch Mötley Crüe’s audience to new fans. I had a great time writing it, and I think our fans will love it too!”
