After a career-defining, chart-topping album and the two-year unfolding of the “Horrorwood Saga” over seven previously released music videos, Ice Nine Kills is ready to bring the curtain down on its blood-soaked “Welcome to Horrorwood” era. On Oct. 12, 2023, Ice Nine Kills will present “Meat & Greet: The Horrorwood Saga Comes to a Tasteful End,” a globally live streamed event taking place at the Montalban Theatre in Hollywood, California, where the band will premiere its new single “Meat & Greet” and present into evidence this last piece of the Horrorwood puzzle in the form of the accompanying music video. Fans can pre-save “Meat & Greet” here.
Early access to the tickets to the event are available to members of the Psychos Only Club now, with the general on-sale here starting at 10 a.m. PT Wednesday, Oct. 4. Tickets are $13 and extremely limited.
This gathering at the Montalban Theatre will be hosted by Ice Nine Kills frontman and prime suspect in several ongoing murder investigations Spencer Charnas, along with entertainment journalist Ryan J. Downey. The event will serve as the global launch of “Meat & Greet” and the debut screening of the complete “Horrorwood Saga” as all eight official music videos are presented as one complete film for the first time ever.
Fans lucky enough to attend the horror extravaganza will also be treated to a live Q&A panel with Charnas, horror icon Bill Moseley (“The Devil’s Rejects,” “House of 1000 Corpses,” “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2”), who stars as the lead detective in the “Horrorwood Saga,” and special guests, exclusive event merch, custom horror-themed beverages, photo ops and unique opportunities to get up close with iconic pieces of Ice Nine Kills memorabilia. Fans around the world will be able to join the murderous festivities remotely as the band will be livestreaming the whole event for free on its YouTube channel starting at 7:30 p.m. PT/10:30 p.m. ET.
“After two years and eight music videos, we’re ready to bring the ‘Welcome to Horrorwood’ saga to a shocking and tasteful climax with the premiere of ‘Meat & Greet,’” Charnas said. “This event will be an immersive multimedia experience celebrating the entire blood-soaked era of ‘The Silver Scream 2: Welcome to Horrorwood.’ It will surely be a night to dismember …”
“Meat & Greet” will herald the imminent release of the band’s most intricate and detail-oriented release yet, “Welcome to Horrorwood Under Fire,” a three-LP deluxe edition of “The Silver Scream 2: Welcome to Horrorwood.” The release will land on Oct. 20 via Fearless Records and will feature the original album, now with the addition of “Meat & Greet,” two reimagined tracks and a limited edition, wearable Silence mask, all encased in a limited and highly collectible flame-engulfed box set. Pre-orders are available here.
“Bigger, bloodier and more brutal, we’ve taken the ‘Silver Scream 2’ and literally set it ablaze!” Charnas said. “‘Welcome to Horrorwood: Under Fire” is our most ambitious and intricately designed piece of INK memorabilia to date. Designed by the legendary Mike Cortada, the 3D flame-engulfed artwork comes to life through real illuminated lightbulbs built into the custom packaging. Encased within is a collection that includes the original album, a brand new studio track, two new re-imaginings of fan favorites and a haunting orchestral version of the entire album by the incredible Francesco Ferrini. But the slicing on the cake is a wearable limited edition Silence mask straight out of the INK cinematic universe. Complete with a death certificate of authenticity signed by yours truly, this boxset is the ultimate collectible for the most die hard of our psychos.”
