Ice Nine Kills is taking on a modern horror favorite in its latest single and video.
The band premiered its new single, ‘Rainy Day‘ and its companion video Thursday. The song is the third single from the band’s forthcoming album, The Silver Scream 2: Welcome to Horrorwood, which is scheduled for release Oct. 15 through Fearless Records. The album most recently produced the single, ‘Assault and Batteries‘ and its companion video. Its premiere was preceded by that of the album’s lead single, ‘Hip To Be Scared‘ and its video.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Rainy Day’ takes Ice Nine Kills in a different direction than that which fans have come to expect. While its familiar melodies and harmonies are there, the arrangement adds more of an industrial influence here a la Spineshank and Gravity Kills in the choruses. The contrast of those influences makes the song in whole a unique, welcome new offering from the band and broadens even more, the picture of what audiences can expect from INK’s new album.
The lyrical theme featured here is simple. As noted the song takes on the classic Resident Evil franchise. Thus the story, which is accompanied by a video that presents its own “fan-made” style Resident Evil story. Front man Spencer Charnas even takes part in a surprising fashion in the video, which is in fact a two-part story. Audiences will be left to see the story in whole for themselves.
In related noted, INK has launched a new series of merchandise in line with the premiere of the new single and video. The new merchandise launch is part of the band’s ongoing Nightmare on the Ninth series of merchandise launches. Audiences can view all of the merchandise here.
