It looks like INK are determined to turn Mickey Mouse’s hometown into one of the most magical—and metal—places on earth.
Last month, the band were set to perform at the Orlando’s House Of Blues on April 26 as part of the Falling In Reverse tour. It was discovered by fans back in February that Ice Nine Kills were no longer included on the Orlando date.
When one fan inquired about the Florida date, INK revealed they had been banned due to their “violent imagery.”
“Disney’s House of Blues in Orlando banned us from performing because of our violent imagery. It’s a shame because I know I’ve seen Donald Duck at a show before, he’s an INK fan.”

INK later responded to the ban by releasing a limited run of Disney-inspired merch.
“As many of you know a certain mouse-loving enterprise has deemed us too “evil”, to perform at a certain Orlando venue of theirs,” the band wrote in a Facebook post that has since been deleted. “Rather than protest, we are accepting this seemingly misguided assumption with great honor. To celebrate the banishment, we are dedicating our ‘Nightmare on the Ninth’ monthly special to the launch of TooEvilForChildren.com. Check out our most devilish designs yet, and bask in the darkness of Lucifer, with your favorite horror-loving psychopaths. These shirts are extremely limited and will never be available online again.”
Now, the band have taken to Twitter to announce a show at Orlando’s Soundbar July 25 with support from Toothgrinder.
