Friday, July 9th, 2021– At a totally sold-out fan event last night at the Mystic Museum in North Hollywood, CA, horror metal titans, Ice Nine Kills announced their long awaited sequel album ‘The Silver Scream 2: Welcome To Horrorwood‘. The fresh slice of horror-themed brutality will be released via Fearless Records on Friday, October 15th and can be pre-saved here. The first single to be unleashed from the album is “Hip To Be Scared“, featuring Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach.

The accompanying music video was premiered at the fan event last night and pays homage to the landmark movie based on the Bret Easton Ellis novel ‘American Psycho‘, centered around psychotic investment banker, Patrick Bateman. “Hip To Be Scared” mixes the soaring choruses, clever lyricism, heavy riffs and Broadway-like theatrics that are as much ‘Hamilton‘ as they are horror. The song also tips its hat to an ‚Äė80s pop classic beloved by the murderous protagonist.

A sequel of franchise proportions to the No. 1 Billboard Hard Rock Album ‘The Silver Scream’, ‘The Silver Scream 2: Welcome to Horrorwood’ doubles down in pursuit of the anthemic band‚Äôs cinematic muse.¬† Decadent, devious, and fiercely insane, with sardonic wit to spare, Ice Nine Kills celebrate pop culture‚Äôs darkest edges, mining a cinephile library‚Äôs worth of b-movie schlock and iconic horror on ‘Welcome to Horrorwood:The Silver Scream 2′ and it’s prequel, ‘The Silver Scream’. The creative marriage made in hell of music and fiction began in earnest with the Boston-based band‚Äôs Top 5 Hard Rock album, ‘Every Trick in the Book’, which brought the previous three records‚Äô themes to new levels with literary-immersed tracks.

Helpless teens, unhelpful authorities, supernatural forces, masked killers, and ‚Äúfinal girls‚ÄĚ abound in the shocking, blood-soaked songs of The Silver Scream. Each piece focused on a different horror classic, including ‚ÄúThe American Nightmare‚ÄĚ (A Nightmare on Elm Street), ‚ÄúThank God It‚Äôs Friday‚ÄĚ (Friday the 13th), ‚ÄúStabbing in the Dark‚ÄĚ (Halloween), and ‚ÄúIt Is The End‚ÄĚ (It). For 2020‚Äôs ‘Undead & Unplugged: Live from the Overlook Hotel’ EP, the band recorded in the location used in Stanley Kubrick‚Äôs The Shining, the inspiration behind ‚ÄúEnjoy Your Slay,‚ÄĚ featuring Kubrick‚Äôs grandson, Sam.

‘The Silver Scream 2: Welcome to Horrorwood’ saw guitarists Ricky Armellino and Dan Sugarman, bassist Joe Occhiuti, drummer Patrick Galante, and Charnas return to producer and collaborator Drew Fulk (As I Lay Dying, A Day To Remember), who produced and mixedThe Silver Scream’, which spawned Top 10 Mainstream Rock single ‚ÄúA Grave Mistake‚ÄĚ and Top 20 hit ‚ÄúSavages.‚ÄĚ

The band‚Äôs synergy of music and lifestyle draws favorable comparisons to Slipknot and Rob Zombie and saw them become recent recipients of the prestigious Clio Award for Music Marketing for their “Merry Axe-mas” mobile game. 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. With 1.1 million monthly listeners on Spotify, 402 million career streams, a combined social media reach of over 950k, over 70 million views on YouTube, the band are firmly cemented as one of modern metal’s most vicious forces.
