soul of Ice Nine Kills has and always will be our incredibly loyal fan base.
You support us year after year, album after album. I started
this band in a basement in Swampscott Massachusetts, with a goal to someday
make music that moved people. To see the band grow to the point where
hundreds of fans have permanently tattooed our lyrics or our now infamous “IX”
logo on their bodies, is an incredible feeling that is almost impossible to
describe. This band means a lot to a lot of people and that’s not something we
take for granted.
We now need your support more than ever to get our new music in your hands right now! As a number of you may know, the music industry can be a very frustrating and cold landscape. For years this band has had to claw and fight our way to get where we are without the benefit of a powerful record label behind us.
After a tremendous amount of time, effort, and money, we have finally freed ourselves from contractual restraints. This departure is a great and exciting fresh start- but the situation has left us in a tremendous amount of debt.
We are very much looking forward to finding a great new label to call home, but we don’t want to wait any longer to get you guys some new music. Often times, when signing to a new label it can take anywhere from 6 months to a year for them to release your record! We have tours set up into March of 2013 and we simply cannot wait that long to get some new jams out to our fans.
If we can raise $10,000, we will be able to get the band over this
wall of debt that has been built. More importantly, we will be able
finish recording/mix/master/press/ and release an amazing 5 song EP next month that will hold
you guys over until we release the full album (summer 2013)
We have gone to great lengths to make the rewards for donating to this campaign killer as hell. If you'd like, you can almost look at this as a pre-order for our New EP with some REALLY cool prizes that come with it! We are offering everything from getting the EP before everyone else does, to a custom Ice Nine Kills jean jacket to a free pass for life to any Ice Nine Kills show.
From voting us onto the highest profile tours we've ever done (The All Stars Tour & Warped Tour), to making our previous albums some of the best-selling DIY releases in recent memory, you guys have never let us down. Let’s make this happen together.

Risks and challenges
Of course with every great project there consists risks and challenges after the project is funded. This could be everything from mixing/mastering delays for the EP, to productions delays for pressing the physical record, to deadlines being pushed back for unexpected reasons . In order to make these risks as minimal as possible, we have chosen to work with producers, mastering studios, and CD pressing plants that we know and trust.
Whatever the case may be, we will 100% follow through on our promise to get you the most amazing product our band has ever released. If anything is even slightly delayed, our fans/backers will be the first to know!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
