California’s own Hollywood Undead have announced the release of their highly-anticipated sixth full-length studio album, New Empire, Vol. 1, on February 14, 2020 via Dove & Grenade Media / BMG Australia.
Produced by Matt Good (Sleeping With Sirens, Asking Alexandria), the record is comprised of nine high-energy tracks that showcase the band embracing a heavier, hard-rock sound with this effort.
“Time Bomb” builds upon the momentum from Hollywood Undead’s latest single, “Already Dead,” which has already racked up 1.4 million streams worldwide. A full track listing can be found below.
“This album is our attempt at reimagining Hollywood Undead, not just a new sound for this release, but a new sound for the band altogether. Our goal from the outset was to make music that stands alone from our other albums, yet seamlessly fits with what we’ve made before. Building upon the old to create a new sound and a New Empire,” explains Johnny 3 Tears (vocals, bass guitar).
Hollywood Undead also recently announced their massive, 20+ date European co-headline tour with Papa Roach, launching on February 16 in Barcelona and wrapping up on March 18 in Copenhagen.
Since the release of Hollywood Undead’s RIAA platinum-certified 2008 debut album, Swan Songs, their distinctive and infectious music has incited a cult audience of millions of fans, resulting in sold out shows across the globe, in addition to receiving nods in the press from the likes of Consequence of Sound, Billboard, Alternative Press, Rolling Stone, and Revolver. The quintet has also garnered massive mainstream appeal, with their 2011 sophomore record, American Tragedy, going gold and hitting #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Their 2013 full-length, Notes From The Underground, seized the #2 spot, and in 2018, Hollywood Undead crossed 1 billion total global streams across their catalog.
