Boston post-hardcore troupe and horror fanatics Ice Nine Kills have been banned from playing at the House Of Blues in Orlando, Florida later this month as part of Falling In Reverse‘s US tour.
Owned by the entertainment giant Disney, the venue is located in Disney Springs, and it’s them who’ve banned the group from performing there after deeming them inappropriate as they’re “too evil”.
Disney banned @ICENINEKILLS from playing that date, true story. Go to the show and support the other bands though ??

The band have now released a statement over the decision, and in response to it they’ve also released a bunch of Disney inspired limited edition merchandise.
“As many of you know, a certain mouse-loving enterprise has deemed us too “evil”, to perform at a certain Orlando venue of theirs. Rather than protest, we are accepting this seemingly misguided assumption with great honor. To celebrate the banishment, we are dedicating our ‘Nightmare on the Ninth’ monthly special to the launch of TooEvilForChildren.com.
Check out our most devilish designs yet, and bask in the darkness of Lucifer, with your favorite horror-loving psychopaths. These shirts are extremely limited and will never be available online again.”
The band’s fifth studio album, ‘The Silver Scream’, is out now through Fearless Records.
