Hyro The Hero Premieres New Song “Retaliation Generation” Featuring Spencer Charnas (Ice Nine Kills)

Hyro The Hero has premiered a new song titled “Retaliation Generation.” This track features Spencer Charnas (Ice Nine Kills) and a lyric video for it can be found below:

Hyro commented:

“‘Retaliation Generation’ is a great song that represents the style of music I have come to be known for. Having Spencer sing the hook and Matt Good on production blasted this track into ‘anthem’ territory. I think this song captures the emotion of what this generation feels in this crazy time we are living in. It’s full on attack mode right from the beginning it’s such a great feeling when an artist like Spencer helps take a song like this to the next level. I want anybody who listens to this song to be a voice. Stand up for what you believe in.”

Charnas added:

“All I kept hearing from my people is how sick Hyro the Hero is, so I checked him out at The Viper Room, and it reminded me of the first time I saw Rage Against the Machine. It was just off-the-chain, unbridled energy and I knew I wanted to be a part of it, and was lucky enough to be asked.”

“I think with everything going on in the last several years, our generation is holding people accountable. It’s a movement in terms of a ‘You ain’t getting away with this shit anymore.’ It’s a battle cry. I think it’s got such a cool overall message of not letting trials and tribulations of the world get you down. I think people can be their own worst enemy, and this is a song of empowerment. You can fight for what you believe in. It’s up to you to put up or shut up.”

In other news, Hyro will also be hosting a Twitch livestream with Charnas, AJ Channer (Fire From the Gods), and Ben Bruce (Asking Alexandria) on January 22 at 1pm PST/4pm EST. As previously reported, he will also be playing a virtual show with Fire From The Gods and Ill Niño on January 30.

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”
