The members of Ice Nine Kills give you their backstory, from demoing and the early days before Remember Tomorrow and INK came together.

“About five years ago, we decided to merge bands, and that’s when we became the Ice Nine Kills of today,” says bassist Justin Morrow.

The band also explain the Kurt Vonnegut reference behind their name, their musical influences, experiences that inspire their lyrics and how they hope to connect with their fans.

“We’ve always thought it was extremely important to create an environment for kids to come out to shows not only just to hear the band, but to be able to meet the band or see the band or see the different phases that we’re going through as a band,” says guitarist/vocalist Justin “JD” deBlieck “That’s the most important thing to me—being able to reach out to them and have some sort of unique relationship.”
