HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD: The streets of Hollywood are paved with dreams.
Most of those dreams are broken, others are buried, and someare simply burned. On their new album, American Tragedy, Hollywood Undead dissect those very same dreams with a volatileand vibrant hip hop swagger, a magnificent metallic crunch, and a danceableindustrial soul. At the heart of the band's second release for A&M/Octone, these six musicians — Johnny3 Tears, J-Dog, Charlie Scene, Da Kurlzz, Funny Man, and Danny — rhyme and rockfrom sharply hilarious jabs about vacuous clubs to unbridled, poignant musingson losing faith and struggling with addiction. Due out April 5, 2011, American Tragedy peeks at the death ofthe American dream from the rooftop of the hottest party in the world. Thissecond offering from Hollywood Undead is a sanctuary for the disillusionedmasses that made the band a Gold-selling sensation. It's a middle finger to thesafe, burdensome "norm." It's the future of heavy pop…
Hollywood Undead have been staring at that future from themoment they burst onto the scene with their breakout 2008 debut, Swan Songs. Since its release, Swan Songs has exceeded sales of 800,000worldwide and is quickly approaching platinum status. The band embarked on atwo-year world tour that saw them play countless sold out headline shows aswell as prestigious festivals such as the UK's Download Festival. In addition, the album's leadoff single"Undead" received prominent placements in the trailer for Paramount'shit film, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and Madden NFL 2009. In 2009, the bandreleased the Desperate Measures DVD/CDcapturing their magnetic madness on stage. The collection also featured a fewunreleased gems and covers. However, everything merely serves as a prelude to American Tragedy.
