Airway Heights, WA (April 16, 2024)Post-hardcore rockers better practice their headbanging – because Ice Nine Kills is returning to Northern Quest Resort & Casino’s BECU Live stage with In This Moment, Avatar & TX2 on Friday, August 30, 2024. 

About Ice Nine Kills
Ice Nine Kills (INK) celebrates pop culture’s darkest edges with a mix of metal, hardcore, and punk. Originally from Boston, the band is best known for its horror-inspired lyrics and theatrical shows. Since its formation in 2000, the band has released three EPs and six full-length studio albums, the latest of which peaked at number 18 on the US Billboard 200. Their band name is derived from the fictional substance “ice-nine” from the 1963 novel Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut.

About In This Moment

Formed by singer Maria Brink and guitarist Chris Howorth in 2005, these Los Angeles alt rockers released their debut album, Beautiful Tragedy, in 2007, and The Dream in 2008. With some metalcore flare, their singles “Prayers” and “Beautiful Tragedy” drew from Brink’s personal experiences with abandonment. In This Moment has since released six additional albums, including their latest, Godmode (2023). Popular songs from the new album include, “I would Die For You,” “Godmode,” and a cover of Björk’s “Army of Me.”

About Avatar

A “melodic death metal” band hailing from Sweden, Avatar has released nine studio albums, including Dance Devil Dance (2023). Formed in 2001 by drummer John Alfredsson and guitarist Jonas Jarlsby, Avatar released two four-song EP demos in 2004. Their first studio album, Thoughts of No Tomorrow (2006), peaked at #47 on the Sweden Albums Top 60. Their song “New Land” peaked at #20 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart in May 2017, followed up by “The Dirt I’m Buried In” which peaked at #1 on the same chart in August 2023.

About TX2

Originally from Colorado, TX2 (Evan Thomas) became a TikTok sensation when his music went viral. He brings an unmatchable intensity in his music through the form of powerful raw lyrics and explosive performances. TX2 has begun a movement known among his fans as the “X Movement,” which is all about bringing awareness to mental health and creating a safe space for those who need to talk.
