Spencer Charnas, Lead Singer of Ice Nine Kills

With the recent release of their album “Every Trick in the Book,” Ice Nine Kills celebrates the influence of the darkest parts of the human psyche. This album pays tribute to the literature of the horror genre, to the reality of life and the issues we face on a daily basis. Allowing a younger generation to witness the struggles of addiction, oppression and all around alienation. As a result I spoke with Spencer Charnas the lead vocalist of Ice Nine Kills. Spencer gives a look into the new album and their upcoming performance at Launch Music Conference in Lancaster Pa.
