Traditionally, the Day of the Dead holiday is all about remembrance.
Now, Hollywood Undead’s fourth full-length album, and first for Interscope Records, Day of the Dead sees the genre-hopping six-piece reflect in a different way. The group—Johnny 3 Tears, J-Dog, Charlie Scene, Danny, Funny Man, and Da Kurlzz—collectively channels the kinetic aggression and wild humor that captivated millions on their platinum-certified 2008 debut Swan Songs, yet they couple it with a wiseass wisdom and sharp songwriting honed over the course of nearly a decade on the road. It’s been quite the ride too.
Their most recent offering Notes From the Underground seized the #2 spot on the Billboard Top 200 upon its 2013 debut, while its predecessor 2011’s American Tragedy, another top 5 entry, quickly approaches gold status. The boys have sold out countless headline shows worldwide and toured with everybody from Avenged Sevenfold to Stone Sour, while appearing at global festivals including Download, Rock on the Range, Rock In Rio, Family Values, and more.
