The new track is inspired by the “Child’s Play” movie franchise that spawned the iconic killer Nice Guy doll, Chucky. Stream the track here and watch the video below.
“It was only one month ago that we painted the walls of Wall Street red with the release of ‘Hip to Be Scared,'” INK frontman Spencer Charnas said. “Now, we proudly present ‘Assault & Batteries,’ a brutal ode to an iconic two-foot-tall demonic doll.”
The band also released its latest “Nightmare on the Ninth” merch capsule in conjunction with the new track/video. All items are available for a limited time here.
