Friday, May 28th, 2021 – The Demented Duo of Jamie Madrox and Monoxide, otherwise known as Twiztid, accompanied by their drummer Drayven, have released a brand new track today. Titled “Envy”, the new track features a very special guest appearance and the unmistakable vocal stylings of Spencer Charnas, frontman of hugely popular horror-themed metalcore outfit, Ice Nine Killls. Listen to the new track on your streaming platform of choice here and watch the official music video, directed by Myles Erfurth, here or by clicking the image below.
Speaking with Loudwire, who premiered the music video for “Envy” yesterday, Twiztid share
“It’s been a good long while since we’ve filmed a video with a director. Myles has an eye for film and a cinematic vision, so I rest assured we’re in good hands.” – Jamie Madrox
“Once again I think we have out done ourselves. We’ve created something that we think you’ll truly be blown away by. We are thrilled to have Spencer on the track, we knew this was something that needed to happen when we met in 2018” ” – Monoxide
“I’m excited for people to be mad at us because they can’t get this song out of their heads!” -Drayven
Spencer Charnas adds
“Ever since we shared the stage with them on the last Warped Tour, we knew that at some point we would need to collaborate with the like minded horror fanatics known to the world as, Twiztid. This sick idea has finally become a reality…”
The track is taken from Twiztid’s upcoming album Unlikely Prescription, which is set for release on September 10th, 2021 via the band’s label Majik Ninja Entertainment. Pre-orders for the album will be available on June 25th from MajikNinjaEntertainment.com It follows the release of previous singles “Corkscrew“, “Perfect Problem” and “Rose Petal” which between them have clocked up 2.9 million streams across platforms to date.
“Envy” was produced by Johnny Andrews (Three Days Grace, Halestorm, All That Remians) who, speaking on working with Twiztid, shared
“I love the way the guys in Twiztid have their own unique take on songwriting.The raps are always killer and the lyrics offer a fresh perspective I really appreciate. Envy was a great example where two different worlds collided and the result was something that I’m really proud of.”
Along with Spencer’s guest vocals, the track also features the incendiary guitar playing of Fozzy’s Rich Ward.
Twiztid also announced a select run of shows this October in the Philadelphia and New York area. Tickets are available now here.

The Twiztid tale is gritty and fascinating folklore, built on self-determination, fearless creativity, and the elimination of the boundaries between artist and audience. The dedicated supporters who stand with co-conspirators Jamie Madrox and Monoxide are more than fans: they are family. The duo remembers what it meant to be part of the crowd before they leaped the barricades onto the stage themselves, and with unrelenting passion and aggression, they’re taking all of us with them.
There’s a rogue’s gallery of hooks, rhythms, and riffs in the Twiztid bag of tricks. For 25 years, they’ve concocted artistic anarchy rooted in the streetwise storytelling sophistication of hip-hop, trance-inducing hypnotic beats, and the seething bite of hard rock rage. Merging horror movies, comics, and a level of depravity and violence rivaling the grimiest of pulp fiction in the annals of Americana, Twiztid is the reflection of a tightly knit subculture and the sound of unbridled id.
Twiztid spin emotional truth into even the wildest of tales, resulting in something endlessly relatable to the alienated and disenfranchised. The music, multimedia, and merchandise originate from their own Majik Ninja Entertainment, headquartered in their native Detroit.
With over a dozen entries on the Billboard charts, 167 million career streams and 148 million Youtube views, Twiztid built themselves into an institution, without the help of mainstream gatekeepers at MTV, traditional radio, or major press. They’ve brought their adrenaline-soaked, unbound artistic mania on the road, with metalcore acts like Motionless In White and on the Vans Warped Tour, all without forsaking the worldwide family they helped strengthen during their initial decade-plus on Psychopathic Records. Twiztid built the connection they maintain with their fiercely dedicated legion of supporters to last and to evolve. Everything Majik Ninja does harken back to that original impulse shared by Monoxide and Jamie Madrox: to make art that swings a big ax at the boundary between audience and artist.
Ice Nine Kills had a bumper year in 2020. When the pandemic hit and their touring plans got cut short, the band, guided by their prolifically creative leader, Spencer Charnas, quickly pivoted and got to work finding new ways to continue to engage with and entertain their fans. Starting with the ingenious, “Jason’s Mom” and going on to include a mini-documentary ‘The Disney Revenge Show‘, a full-length live album ‘I Heard They Kill Live!!‘ recorded at their 2019 sold-out show at the Worcester Palladium, a killer live stream event featuring concert footage cut with an original slasher movie co-written by Spencer and starring horror icon Chop Top Moseley and the hugely successful launch of their killer new fan-based community and app – The Psychos Only Club. The band also saw staggering, record-breaking merch sales with their continuing monthly Nightmare On The Ninth-themed capsules.
Ending the year with a bang, Spencer guested on the Hollywood Undead hit “Heart Of A Champion” along with Jacoby Shaddix and appeared as part of the Hollywood Undead House Party Live Stream. Continuing this momentum in 2021, Spencer guested on the rabble-rousing Hyro The Hero track “Retaliation Generation” and Sullivan King’s track “Venomous”.
After a decade of studio wizardry and live theatricality, Ice Nine Kills draws favorable comparisons to rock icons like Slipknot, Rob Zombie, and Marilyn Manson, via a like-minded synergy of music, lifestyle, and cult following reverence. With 1 million monthly listeners on Spotify, 402 million career streams, a combined social media reach of over 950k, and over 70 million views on YouTube, the band are firmly cemented as one of modern metal’s most ferocious forces.
