ICE NINE KILLS: 'Thank God It's Friday' Video

July 17, 2018

Boston metalcore band ICE NINE KILLS has issued a music video for the song "Thank God It's Friday". In the clip, the group (and a bunch of unsuspecting teenagers) visit Crystal Lake and that's when all the trouble ensues. The video is a modern tribute to the classic "Friday The 13th" slasher series starring machete-wielding horror hero Jason Voorhees.

"Thank God It's Friday" will appear on ICE NINE KILLS's upcoming album, "The Silver Scream", which will be released on Friday, October 5 via Fearless Records. All of the album's 13 anthems are based on 13 respective horror classics.

The band previously shared the cinematic video for "The American Nightmare" — a twisted and tasteful homage to director Wes Craven's "A Nightmare On Elm Street" franchise. The clip provides a thematic feast for children of the '80s who grew up loving Freddie Krueger, the first film, and its sequels. It was directed by Daniel Hourihan and is the first installment of an over-arching film that will be a counterpart to "The Silver Scream".

ICE NINE KILLSSpencer 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 songwriting 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's biggest to date, bowing at No. 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and in the Top 5 of the Hard Rock Albums and Independent Albums charts.

ICE NINE KILLS 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.

As previously reported, Charnas has partnered with "Scream Comes Home", a Kickstarter campaign that will give fans an opportunity to hang out the house Wes Craven's classic slasher "Scream" was filmed in.

A special experience tier that is being offered as part of the campaign includes a chance to see Charnas perform in the garage of "Scream" character Stuart "Stu" Macher's house in the actual town that played the role of the fictional town of Woodsboro — Santa Rosa, California. The ICE NINE KILLS frontman will play an acoustic cover version of "Youth Of America", BIRDBRAIN's final and most successful single, which was featured in "Scream".
