Ice Nine Kills Unleashes ‘Merry Axe-Mas’ Video Game; Band To Continue Tour In 2020

Courtesy: Fearless Records

Ice Nine Kills is celebrating the holidays by giving its fans a very special gift.

The band has made available, the video game from the video for its single ‘Merry Axe-Mas.’  The band debuted the sing’es video Dec. 21, 2018. The single is taken from the band’s 2018 album The Silver Scream and is also featured on the album’s recent re-issue, subtitled The Final Cut.

The video game features three levels — Santa’s Forgiveness, Santa’s Forest and Silence The Sinners — through which Santa Claus wreaks some serious holiday havoc.  The video game and the song and video are all inspired by the controversial 1984 slasher flick Silent Night, Deadly Night, which is a favorite of INK front man Spencer Charnas.

Ice Nine Kills spent much of this year touring in support of its latest release The Silver Scream and its re-issue on the “Silver Scream World Tour” and “The Octane Accelerator Tour,” which was presented by Sirius XM.  The majority of the shows on that latter tour were sold out.

The band will continue its support of The Silver Scream well into the new year with a string of European dates in February and March.  That run will give way to another North American run that is scheduled to launch April 8 in Sunrise, FL and to run through May 20 in St. Paul, MN.  From there, the band will make its way to the United Kingdom for a brief stint there in late May.

Papa Roach, Five Finger Death Punch, I Prevail and Hollywood Undead will join the band on several dates.  The bands’ current tour schedule is noted below.  Tickets are available here.
