Ice Nine Kills channel Pennywise the Clown in “IT Is The End” video
To go along with the album, Ice Nine Kills created a mini-series starring vocalist Spencer Charnas that correlates to each single on the album.
The band are not shy about their love of horror, especially the It franchise. They have a contest where fans had a chance to attend a screening of It: Chapter Twowith Charnas when it debuted. They also teamed up with Reel Big Fish for a performance of “IT Is The End” complete with clown makeup. You can see a video of that performance below.
Now, they’ve dropped the creepy video that looks like it came straight from Pennywise the Dancing Clown’s brain. It’s 14 minutes long, and we see Charnas fully embody the horror icon in the clip. Also members of Less Than Jake and Fenix TX that feature on the song make appearances in the music video.
"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',” Charnas said of the new video. "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,” he continued.

Ice Nine Kills plan to release a final cut of The Silver Scream on October 25. It will include four acoustic versions of songs on the record with guest appearances that will be revealed at a later date. It will feature a new song inspired by Scream and a cover track as well.
