With each video for the singles from their latest album, ‘The Silver Scream’, Boston’s Ice Nine Kills have debuted a brief instalment in an overarching horror mini-series.
They’ve now debuted its fifth and final part to the story, and it accompanies their song ‘IT Is The End’, which is based off of Stephen King‘s horror classic, IT, and vocalist Spencer Charnas plays the role of the story’s evil clown, Pennywise.
This is what Charnas had to say about the song, its video, and the conclusion of their mini-series.
“The ‘The Silver Scream’ film closes with a song that pays tribute to Pennywise the dancing clown from one of the scariest books and films of all time, IT. Originally a novel by Stephen King, two very different films (both equally as brilliant) have been adapted for the screen. Jovial and friendly at first, Pennywise can switch to the embodiment of evil at the drop of a hat, so I wanted to capture that as best as I could in my vocal performance and in the video clip. Perhaps my favorite song on the album, it features incredible guest performances from two of my favorite bands of all time, Less Than Jake and Fenix TX. Will Salazar of FT, who co-wrote the chorus with me, does guest vocals and JR and Buddy from LTJ provide the sinister circus like horn section that enhances the twisted carnival of carnage that is Pennywise.”

The band’s fifth studio album, ‘The Silver Scream’, is out now through Fearless Records.
