The band has shared the cinematic video for \”The American Nightmare,\” which is a twisted and tasteful homage to director Wes Craven\’s A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. The video provides a thematic feast for children of the \’80s who grew up loving Freddie Krueger, the first film, and its sequels. It\’s accompanied by an eerie yet arena-sized hook that commands the listener to sing along.
The video was directed by Daniel Hourihan and is the first installment of an over-arching film that will be a counterpart to the The Silver Scream.
The band is spending its summer on the final traveling edition of the Vans Warped Tour and will appear on all dates, which run through August 5. All INK summer tour dates are below.
Ice Nine Kills — Spencer Charnas [vocals], Justin DeBlieck [vocals, guitar, orchestration], and Justin Morrow [guitar, bass]— hit the studio with producer Drew Fulk [Motionless In White, As I Lay Dying] in Los Angeles in early 2018 and recorded The Silver Scream.
Through the art of intricate song writing and elaborate storytelling, the Boston band has mastered the ability to engage and captivate listeners. Seamlessly weaving aggressive post-hardcore with soaring melodies, the band utilizes multi-textured guitar hooks, a dual vocal attack, complex orchestral arrangements and a pummeling rhythm section, which grabs the listener by the throat and refuses to let go.
The group\’s 2015 offering, Every Trick In the Book, paid homage to a classic literary work and became Ice Nine Kills\’ biggest to date, bowing at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and in the Top 5 of the Hard Rock Albums and Independent Albums charts. Ice Nine Kills lived on the road, touring with Motionless In White, Every Time I Die, Chelsea Grin, Wage War, and more.
In the end, Ice Nine Kills carve up silver screen-worthy escapism of the highest caliber and reach a new level in the process with The Silver Scream.
