Ice Nine Kills was founded under the name Ice Nine by high school friends Spencer Charnas and Jeremy Schwartz and changed their name to Ice Nine Kills just before releasing their debut independent album 'Last Chance to Make Amends' on April 20, 2006. The following year on November 20, 2007, Ice Nine Kills released their EP, 'The Burning,' through Red Blue Records. The band then set out on several national tours in support of the EP including opening slots on tours with I See Stars and Eyes Set To Kill among others. By 2008, the group had been invited to open for well-known acts such as As I Lay Dying, A Day To Remember, Thursday, Paramore, and a one off performance on the Taste of Chaos 2009 tour. That same year, Ice Nine Kills released 2 acoustic tracks ("The Simple Act of Giving Up" and "Lifetime in a Week") on an EP titled '2 Song Acoustic.' Ice Nine Kills headlined on the Fresh Faces Tour from October 24 - November 29 with new Fearless Records bands Wage War, The White Noise, and more. Ice Nine Kills has also been featured on the Fearless Punk Goes... series with their cover of "Animals" by Maroon 5 for 'Punk Goes Pop, Vol. 6' and their cover of "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" by ZAYN and Taylor Swift for 'Punk Goes Pop, Vol. 7'.
