Whether you like it or not, it’s hard to say Ice Nine Kills weren’t an unqualified success story when they released The Silver Scream in 2018. In retrospect, it wasn’t a surprise to see it coming, though. Now, the band has doubled down on that success with The Silver Scream 2: Welcome To Horrorwood – a sequel to the album that put them into the national consciousness.
The band has now released “Hip To Be Scared”, the first single from the album, which also features Papa Roach vocalist Jacoby Shaddix. Already racking up 250k Spotify streams in just a few days of release, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the song becoke just as successful as some of The Silver Scream’s biggest singles.
Speaking on his band’s newly announced album, Ice Nine Kills frontman and driving creative force, Spencer Charnas shared:
“True to horror franchise tradition, there is always a sequel…”The Silver Scream 2: Welcome To Horrorwood” follows in the bloody footsteps of its predecessor, paying tribute to 13 more of the most gruesome tales to ever grace the silver screen. In this latest INK offering, the last album and video series is portrayed as a work of fiction. The new story line thrusts the band into a brutal “real world” slaying. The only traces of the crime are 13 songs left behind by the suspected killer…
We can’t wait to share this next chapter with you, and to welcome you to the sinister state of mind that will soon be known the world over as, “Horrorwood”.
The first stop on the tour is 1980’s New York City’s “greed is good” scene, where a certain hot shot investment banker has a rather violent dirty secret…”
‘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 mixed ‘The Silver Scream’, which spawned Top 10 Mainstream Rock single “A Grave Mistake” and Top 20 hit “Savages.”
