In what now seems like an inevitable turn of events, Ice Nine Kills has announced a horror convention.

The three-day event, dubbed Silver Scream Con, takes place August 26 to August 28 in Danvers, Massachusetts, just outside the metal band’s hometown of Boston. Or, as the Silver Scream Con trailer puts it, “Less than 5 miles from historically spooky Salem.”

“The Silver Scream Con will bring horror fanatics and INK fans from all over the world together to celebrate their love of on-screen slaughter,” says frontman Spencer Charnas. “This is the chance for our loyal psychos to not only interact with the band, but to meet the stars of the very films that our music pays tribute to.”

Ice Nine Kills’ music, of course, is heavily inspired by horror films. Their latest album, 2021’s The Silver Scream 2: Welcome to Horrorwood, features songs referencing movies Child’s Play, American Psycho, Resident Evil and My Bloody Valentine.

Like any good convention, Silver Scream Con will feature a variety of guests, including Scream‘s Skeet Ulrich, Halloween’s original Michael Myers, Nick Castle, and Danielle Harris, of Rob Zombie’s Halloween. Additionally, Ice Nine Kills will be giving an intimate performance.
