Ovtlier Debuts ‘Who We Are’ Lyric Video

Courtesy: O’Donnell Media Group

Ovtlier debuted the video for its latest single over the weekend.

The band debuted the lyric video for its song ‘Who We Are’ Friday through BraveWords.com. The lyric video’s debut comes more than three months after the band debut the song’s original video. It premiered that video through altpress.com.

The new lyric video places the song’s lyrics over various backdrops, some of which feature pictures of the band performing, and others filled with dirt and flames.

The musical arrangement at the center of ‘Who We Are’ is, like its predecessor — ‘Buried Me Alive‘ — a melodic hard rock composition that also incorporates a certain aggro-rock element into the mix to make the song whole. The band worked with Ice Nine Kills member Justin “JD” deBlieck on ‘Who We Are,’ just as with ‘Buried Me Alive.’

Front man Joey Arena had the following to say of the lyrical content featured in ‘Who We Are’ in the band’s interview with BraveWords.com:

“’Who We Are’ will hold a special place in the Ovtlier arsenal,” he said. “A song that skims the surface of a personal hell; I have swept a lot of childhood trauma under the rug and just kept it moving throughout life. It feels damn near impossible to trust or let anyone in so I keep everyone at arms length. Something I am currently working on and because I am determined to re-wire some of my perception pertaining to that, I look forward to the day this song is only an artifact to a past self. Everything we go through starting with day number one is what shapes us into ‘Who We Are’,”

‘Who We Are’ is available to stream and download here.

Ice Nine Kills Debuts ‘The Silver Stream’ Trailer

Courtesy: Cosa Nostra PR/Fearless Records

Ice Nine Kills debuted a new trailer this week for its upcoming livestream event, dubbed “The Silver Stream.”

The band debuted the cinematic trailer, which features Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects, House of 1,000 Corpses, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2) talking with front man Spencer Charnas. Meanwhile as Moseley and Charnas talk, the trailer proceeds to show a masked figure “killing” Charnas’ band mates and adds in a creepy message that “if you’re online to chat, you’re in line to die.” Moseley will serve as host of the event.

The livestream’s trailer plays out very much in the same style as the videos for the singles from the band’s latest album The Silver Scream. Viewer discretion is advised as there is some blood and overt violent content in the trailer.

Thursday’s ticketed event is scheduled to take place at noon ET Thursday on Sirius XM’s Octane channel, one day ahead of the release of INK’s new live recording I Heard They Kill Live. It will also feature an early presentation of the noted concert. The stream will re-air at 7 p.m. and midnight.

I Heard They Kill Live is scheduled for release Oct. 30 through Fearless Records on separate CD and vinyl platforms. The performance was recorded at the band’s hometown show in Worcester, MA on Nov. 19, 2019.

Front man Spencer Charnas talked about the performance during a recent interview.

“The Worcester Palladium holds a very special place in the heart of INK’s history,” he said. “On September 22nd, 2000, I attended a Goldfinger/Mest concert there that changed the course of my life. I knew after that incredibly high-energy show that I wanted to dedicate my life to writing and performing my own music. One year later, INK’s first show would take place on the very same stage at a battle of the bands that we did not win. The concert is pictured in this album insert. 18 years later we sold out the very same 3,000 capacity venue and recorded this live album there—a full circle moment that I will never forget. This album is dedicated to the INK psychos who allow us to make murder and mayhem an actual career.”

Ice Nine Kills debuted a live clip of ‘Stabbing in the Dark‘ — which is featured in I Heard They Kill Live — Oct. 9. ‘Stabbing in the Dark’ is just one of the songs that is featured in the recording. The presentation features a total of 19 songs from across the band’s catalog, such as ‘Communion of the Cursed, ‘The Nature of the Beast,’ and ‘Me, Myself & Hyde.’

The recording’s set list is noted below.

In other news, INK recently launched a new fan community Friday called the “Psychos Only Club.”  The app-based fanclub gives its members access to exclusives, such as band member social feeds, updates about the band, merchandise, and videos.

Charnas said in a recent interview, he believes the band’s fans will appreciate the new INK fan community outlet.

“This is going to add a killer new dimension to the INK fandom universe!,” he said.  “Complete with exclusive never before see content, this will allow our audience to break down the barrier between band and fan and see what really happens behind the screams.”

Along with everything noted, the new fan community will allow fans to take part in giveaways, watch parties, and even trivia with the band, and members-only merchandise, ticket & VIP packages for live shows.

Ovtlier Signs New Distribution Deal; Deal Will See Band’s Latest Single Officially Released Next Month

Courtesy: O’Donnell Media Group

Ovtlier is continuing its growth.

The independent band, which has already built a name for itself with the singles ‘Who We Are‘ and ‘Buried Me Alive‘ has signed a new distribution deal.  The new deal is with Zoid Entertainment.  It will see the company release ‘Who We Are’ Oct. 23 through INgrooves.

Zoid Entertainment President Peter Tsiolis spoke highly of Ovtlier in discussing the new deal.

“When their manager (Dennis Sanders) played Who We are, we felt this was a project on which we wanted to work,” said Tsiolis. “As we continued to discuss what role we could play in the band’s future we decided we wanted Ovtlier to be part of what is an extremely limited roster of bands that we want to have on the label side of Zoid Entertainment Group.”

“We believe Who We Are is a beginning full of promise,” added Tsiolis. “The hook is infectious, and the lyrics will speak to today’s youth in a way that has been missing in recent years. With the release of the track on October 23rd, we start the journey together with Ovtlier and INgrooves.”

Front man Joey Arena talked about the song during the band’s interview with Alt Press in July when the band debuted the song and its video through the magazine.

“Who We Are” is about accepting the individuality of ourselves and others,” he said. “Understanding that trauma, especially stemming back to childhood plays a vital role in the years to come of ones life. We all have things that shape and make us into who and what we are.”

According to information in the noted interview, the band worked with Ice Nine Kills member Justin “JD” deBlieck on the song, just as with the band’s most recent single, ‘Buried Me Alive.’

The musical arrangement at the center of ‘Who We Are’ is, like its predecessor, a melodic hard rock composition that also incorporates a certain aggro-rock element into the mix to make the song whole.

‘Who We Are’ is available to stream and download here.

Ovtlier Debuts ‘Who We Are’ Video

Ovtlier debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the video for its new single ‘Who We Are’ Friday through altpress.com.  The video features the band performing its single against the backdrop of a campfire scene.  As the band performs, the story is told of a couple that is very much in love, but also is going through some very stressful situations.  That imagery plays into the song’s lyrical theme, which front man Joey Arena talked about during the band’s interview with Alt Press.

“Who We Are” is about accepting the individuality of ourselves and others,” he said. “Understanding that trauma, especially stemming back to childhood plays a vital role in the years to come of ones life. We all have things that shape and make us into who and what we are.”

Ice Nine Kills Celebrates Horror Movie’s Anniversary With New Mini-Doc; Launches New Fan Contest

Ice Nine Kills is celebrating a special anniversary this month.

The band is celebrating the 45th anniversary of the theatrical debut of Jaws with a new mini-documentary.  Jaws made its theatrical debut June 20, 1975.

The documentary features Ice Nine Kills member Ricky Armellino and his father discussing how the elder Armellino came to own the famed harpoon gun used in the timeless horror flick.

Mr. Armellino told his son that he came to own the gun, which played into the killer great white shark’s demise, as a result of a deal involving a classic car and money owed to him.  That is only putting out part of the story.  The rest of the story will be left for audiences to discover for themselves.

The full video is streaming below.

Front man Spencer Charnas shared his own thoughts on the story in a separate interview.

“The horror prop gods smiled upon INK with this extremely cool connection to one of the most important horror films of all time,” said Charnas.  “Now that we have one of the harpoon guns, all we need is a piece of The Orca or The Kintner boy’s severed torso…”

Jaws was the inspiration for the song ‘Rock The Boat,’ which is featured on the band’s album The Silver Scream and its re-issue The Final Cut.  That re-issue featured a handful of bonus acoustic performances of songs featured in the original album.

As an addition to the anniversary celebration, Ice Nine Kills is making available, some beach-ready attire and paraphernalia, such as swimsuits, beach towels, and Jaws-themed face coverings. The items are part of the band’s monthly “Nightmare on the Ninth” celebration and are available to order here.

In other Ice Nine Kills news, the band released its new acoustic EP Undead and Unplugged late last month.  In connection with its release, the band has launched what it has dubbed the “Enjoy Your Slay Vocal/Guitar contest.

The contest encourages fans to submit videos of themselves performing their own acoustic take of ‘Enjoy Your Slay.’  Winners will receive a custom Ice Nine Kills horror axe much like the one used by Jack Nicholson in the classic horror movie The Shining.  Information about entries is available here.

Ovtlier Debuts ‘Buried Me Alive’ Re-Issue Video

Courtesy: INgrooves/The Label Group/Universal Music Group

Independent hard rock band Ovtlier debuted the video for the re-issue of its 2019 single ‘Buried Me Alive’ this month.

The band debuted the video for the single’s re-issue June 24.  The song’s musical arrangement presents an aggro-rock style approach through its tuned down guitar, heavy bass and drums, and hybrid screaming/singing vocals.

Front man Joey Arena talked about the song’s regeneration and its lyrical theme in a recent interview, noting that despite the song’s visualization, it is not actually about a relationship gone bad or even literally being buried alive.

“Buried Me Alive” is a personal favorite and great representation of Ovtlier,” he said.  “I chose to re-record Buried in 2019 (release in 2020) because I knew there was a lot of life left and it deserved to be heard. It was written by myself and Evan McKeever and produced by Justin “JD” de Blieck of Ice Nine Kills. It was a great experience to revisit a song from years ago only to see how much you grow as a musician and vocalist. It’s a test to oneself. Lyrically, the song is about my love for music but hate for the industry. It can almost take the love out of the art if you let it, chew you up and spit you out. Like life, we must roll with the punches and continue on.”

‘Buried Me Alive’ is available to stream and download here.
