This is the chance for our loyal psychos to not only interact with the band, but to meet the incredible stars of the very films that our music pays tribute to.”

ABOUT ICE NINE KILLS
Decadent, devious, and fiercely insane, Ice Nine Kills celebrate pop culture’s darkest edges, mining a cinephile library’s worth of iconic horror on 2018’s The Silver Scream which spawned Top 10 Mainstream Rock single “A Grave Mistake” and Top 20 hit “Savages”.
The phenomenally successful follow-up, ‘The Silver Scream 2: Welcome To Horrorwood’ scored Ice Nine Kills their first Top 20 position (#18) on the Billboard Top 200, topped the Digital and Current Hard Music charts, hit Top 5 on the Current Rock, Independent, Current Albums, and Album Sales charts and has clocked up 62 million cross-platform streams to date and 6.6 million YouTube views for singles “Hip To Be Scared”, “Assault & Batteries”, “Rainy Day” “Funeral Derangements” and, most recently, “Take Your Pick”.
The band’s synergy of music and lifestyle draws favorable comparisons to Slipknot and Rob Zombie. Visionary trailblazers and multimedia raconteurs, INK built a thrilling world for a growing legion of devoted true believers, with theatrical shows, high-concept videos, and inventive band-to-fan communion. Their wildly creative output has seen them become recent recipients of the prestigious Clio Award for Music Marketing for their “Merry Axe-mas” mobile game and their live streaming event from October 2020, The Silver Stream be nominated for 5 awards at this year’s Horror Hound Film Festival Awards in the categories of Judges Choice, Best Sound, Best Supporting Performance, Best Cinematography, and Best Feature. With over 1.37 million monthly listeners on Spotify, 595 million career streams to date, and over 152 million views on YouTube the band are firmly cemented as one of modern metal’s most vicious forces.
