Ice Nine Kills have shared the cinematic video for their new single, “The American Nightmare”, taken from their recently announced new album, The Silver Scream, out Friday, October 5th on Fearless Records. The album’s 13 anthems are based on 13 respective horror classics.
“The American Nightmare” is a twisted and tasteful homage to director Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. The video provides a thematic feast for children of the ’80s who grew up loving Freddie Krueger, the first film, and its sequels. It’s accompanied by an eerie yet arena-sized hook that commands the listener to sing along. The video was directed by Daniel Hourihan and is the first installment of an over-arching film that will be a counterpart to the The Silver Scream.
