Hands up if you caught Ice Nine Kills’ maiden voyage to Australia last year for Good Things Festival. Okay, keep those hands in the air if you’re reliving that experience over and over in your mind, patiently waiting for the day international touring returns so your new fave band can come back on their own headliner.
While international touring isn’t on anyone’s mind for the foreseeable future, we’ve kinda been given the next best thing. Ice Nine Kills are set to bring back their live set to our screens later this month, in an exclusive reimagining of their hometown show at The Worcester Palladium last November. Frontman Spencer Charnas shares with us the memory of that hometown show:
“The Worcester Palladium holds a very special place in the heart of INK’s history. On September 22nd, 2000, I [attended a Goldfinger/Mest concert there that changed the course of my life. I knew after that incredibly high-energy show that I wanted to dedicate my life to writing and performing my own music. One year later, I9K’s first show would take place on the very same stage at a battle of the bands that we did not win. The concert is pictured in this album insert. 18 years later we sold out the very same 3,000 capacity venue and recorded this live album there—a full circle moment that I will never forget. This album is dedicated to the I9K psychos who allow us to make murder and mayhem an actual career.”
Catch I9K live streaming to your living room on Friday 30th October at 12pm AEDT. Tickets here
