A band who embrace horror to the fullest, Ice Nine Kills will be slashing their way across the country on the Octane Accelerator tour. With a lineup including Fit For A King, Light The Torch, Make Them Suffer and Awake At Last, it’s easy to see that this will be one scary good tour to catch this fall.
