Boston, Massachusetts post-hardcore band Ice Nine Kills have recently shared the acoustic version of their song “Stabbing In The Dark” which features Trivium‘s Matt Heafy. You can check out the music video of that version below. The song is taken from the “Final Cut” version of the band’s album The Silver Scream which will be released on October 25th via Fearless Records.
Heafy commented on the song:
Ice Nine Kills is one of the absolute best bands on the planet right now. With their blend of styles and sounds and unique imagery, they’ve crafted a world entirely their own. Being such a big fan myself, I did an acoustic cover of ‘Stabbing In The Dark‘ on my Twitch live one day. Next thing I knew, INK checked it out and dug it – which I was honored to hear. When I was asked to guest on a proper acoustic version of my favorite tune from ‘The Silver Scream‘–I was elated. I can’t wait till the world hears this newly reimagined version of this incredible song. Watch as INK takes the world over. Mark my words.
Ice Nine Kills frontman Spencer Charnas added:
We were devilishly delighted to find out that Matt was a fan of INK. When we heard his chill-inducing cover of ‘Stabbing In The Dark,’ we knew right then and there that we had to collaborate with him. We have enormous respect for Matt‘s abilities and are honored to have him be a part of this spooky, almost folk-like rendition of the song. He slaughtered this performance and we can’t wait for people to hear it during our favorite month of the year.
