“For the third instalment of The Silver Scream, we continue to follow the story of my therapist as his suspicions about my homicidal activity grow stronger,” says singer Spencer Charnas. “In this clip entitled, ‘A Grave Mistake,’ we learn more about the dark double life that I lead and in the process pay homage to the 1994 horror/action classic, The Crow.”
The song lives on the band’s latest album The Silver Scream, out Friday, October 5 via Fearless Records. All of the album’s 13 anthems are based on 13 respective horror classics. The physical pre-order is available here.
From a listening party at Michael Myers’ house to the St. Vitus album release performance to a private party at the Screamhouse, there are plenty of blood-chilling chances to see the band as we creep our way towards the Halloween season.
The album’s accompanying short film is also set to be screened.
Curious about that slashterpiece?
Here’s the deal. When the lead singer of Ice Nine Kills enlists a therapist to deal with disturbing dreams, bodies begin to pile up as reality mimics his slasher-movie-like nightmares. They say it’s hard getting into the movies — try getting out.
Below is the schedule of appearances, which are bound to delight those with hardcore horror movie fetishes.

Additionally, the band will hit the road with Atreyu and Memphis May Fire in the US. Those dates are also below.
INK previously issued the video for “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 13thslasher series starring machete-wielding horror hero Jason Voorhees. Watch it here:
The band also shared the equally cinematic video for “The American Nightmare” — 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 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. Watch it here.
