The new video is featured on Ice Nine Kills’ upcoming album, The Silver Scream 2: Welcome To Horrorwood
As Halloween is nearing, it’s perfect time for Ice Nine Kills to drop their gloomy music video ‘Funeral Derangements’. The dramatic track by the American post-hardcore band is one of many powerful works, featured on their upcoming record, The Silver Scream 2: Welcome To Horrorwood. The album is set for release on October 15, 2021.
The atmospheric music video, which already boasts close to 400.000 views on YouTube, is one piece of quality director’s work, inspired by the classical movie Pet Sematary. The latter is an adaption of Stephen King’s award-winning horror novel. Introducing the new brutal video, the band’s frontman Spencer Charnas calls it their “most ambitious homage yet”:
“In perhaps the most ironic cameo in recent horror memory, we’ve tapped the amazing Miko Hughes—Gage from the original Pet Sematary—to play the role of the reckless truck driver. An 18 wheeler, a twisted cat, a scalpel and an evil burial ground all come together in what I’d call our most ambitious homage yet. Dig in.”

Both musically and visually, Ice Nine Kills keep challenging themselves this year and setting the bar higher and higher. In July, the band dropped a cinematic music video for another song from the new album, ‘Hip To Be Scared’. The track is a collaboration with Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach. If you’ve missed it, give it a look at this location.
Ice Nine Kills have also spiced their upcoming album with curious guest appearances. From legendary horror actor Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects, House Of 1000 Corpses) to Miko Hughes, who starred in the original 1989 movie, to Josh Katz of Badflower and actors of YouTube series Kill Count.
The fierce post-hardcore band also gave us a sneak peek into their “ballady” side this year. For one, the musicians launched an emotional cover video of Elvis Presley’s undying ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’ on February 9. Remind yourself how awesome it was in the player below:
The highly anticipated new album The Silver Scream 2: Welcome To Horrorwood picks it up where the band left it off in 2018. Their previous record, The Silver Scream, got both critics’ and fans’ acclaim and used lots of dark movies as a source of inspiration. Among them are Friday the 13th, Halloween, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Saw, The Crow, Jaws, The Shining and the good old Edward Scissorhands.
