Horror-themed Metal band Ice Nine Kills have often created a cinematic atmosphere at shows to make their fans feel as if they were in a horror film, but now they are taking that theatrical direction even further by announcing the inaugural edition of a new horror convention, Silver Scream Con. Curated by the band, the convention will celebrate all things horror and will take place August 26th – August 28th at The DoubleTree Boston North Shore Hotel in Danvers in the band’s home state of Massachusetts.
The event will include photo ops, celebrity signings, discussion panels, “scary-oke” and an “intimate live show” from Ice Nine Kills.
Speaking about the announcement, Ice Nine Kills frontman, Spencer Charnas shares:
The Silver Scream Con will bring horror fanatics and INK fans from all over the world together to celebrate their love of on-screen slaughter. This is the chance for our loyal psychos to not only interact with the band, but to meet the incredible stars of the very films that our music pays tribute to.
