Following their ban from playing a show on Disney property, Ice Nine Kills have announced they are “back for revenge” with a show in Orlando, Florida.

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 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.

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
