With each successive release, Hollywood Undead only get bigger and better—like the rare Hollywood sequel that bests the original. As far as 21st century acts are concerned, they've only consistently progressed. The group’s fourth full-length album, 'Day of the Dead' [out March 31 - iTunes link], proudly continues that tradition yet again. Everything that fans loved about 'Swan Songs', 'American Tragedy,' and 'Notes from the Underground' stands intact, but they manage to resurrect the intensity at the heart of their beloved debut with a new fire altogether.
Not only do millions of fans celebrate them, but their peers do as well. In this exclusive feature, ARTISTdirect.com editor in chief Rick Florino spoke to Jonathan Davis of Korn, Ben Bruce of Asking Alexandria, M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold and more about the band.
Check out what they had to say below!
What can you say about Hollywood Undead?
Jonathan Davis of Korn, J Devil, & Killbot
Jonathan Davis: I f***ing love Hollywood Undead! They write killer songs, and they're f***ing cool as sh*t. I had a blast remixing "Hear Me Now" a while back. We were stoked to get them on Family Values in 2013 too. I wish them nothing but the best.
Ben Bruce of Asking Alexandria
Ben Bruce: They're a really good band with some huge hooks. We've done more shows than I can count together, and it's always refreshing.
Jake Scherer of New Medicine
Jake Scherer: I listened to 'Swan Songs' a lot. I really love that album. We got to become friends with those guys by touring together, and they're all awesome dudes. They have some really amazing songs, and they're really fun to watch live. I can't wait to hear more.
M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold
M. Shadows: We've done a few tours with them, and they always put on a great show. I'm glad we've gotten to go out together a couple times.
