Hollywood Undead have premiered a new live video for their song “Time Bomb.” This track is from the band’s latest album “New Empire, Vol. 1.” Johnny 3 Tears commented:
“Sadly, we had the last leg of our European co-headlining tour with Papa Roach cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but this video encompasses the raw, infectious energy the fans brought every night. So we thought releasing a live video, especially right now, would be a cool way to highlight the experience to put an exclamation point on a great tour.”
The remaining dates on Papa Roach, Hollywood Undead, and Ice Nine Kills’ European tour have officially been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The bands were previously planning to reschedule the shows, but they were unable to do so.
Hollywood Undead have premiered a new video for their song “Nightmare.” This track is from the band’s latest album “New Empire, Vol. 1.” The group commented:
“Shot in quarantine. Nightmares are defined as dreams that bring out strong feelings of fear, terror, distress or anxiety. They feel more vivid or intense than a bad dream, and nightmares are often differentiated from dreams when they cause the sleeper to actually wake up and experience intense feelings upon waking.”
Hollywood Undead have cancelled their spring tour with Bad Wolves, From Ashes To New, and Fire From The Gods due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band commented:
“The shows on our Spring 2020 U.S. co-headline tour w/ Bad Wolves, with exception to Council Bluffs, IA being postponed to 9/19/20, must be cancelled out of an abundance of caution and in line with official guidelines. Refunds are available at the point of purchase. Be Safe, Stay Healthy, and thanks for your understanding. Hey Bad Wolves From Ashes to New and Fire From the Gods – Lets try it again some time?”
The remaining dates on Papa Roach, Hollywood Undead, and Ice Nine Kills’ European tour have been cancelled due to the coronavirus. The bands are hoping to reschedule the shows later this year.
Papa Roach issued the following statement:
“Unfortunately, due to the CORONAVIRUS / COVID-19 and the latest government restrictions of public gatherings, our concerts in Paris, Tilburg, Düsseldorf, Hamburg and Copenhagen have been cancelled by the local government authorities. This tour was so epic, we tried to perform all of our shows so we are all gutted!!!
We are working with our team to reschedule these cities, but at the moment, nothing can be confirmed as the information is changing daily. Please be patient as we naviagate through these necessary precautions. Hold on to your ticket and we will add a few more cities.

Hollywood Undead never disappoint and their new album “New Empire, Vol. 1” is no exception. The effort combines elements of rock, rap, metal, and electronic music to create killer songs that are sure to satisfy longtime fans.
The record opens with the hard-hitting track “Time Bomb,” which pumps the listener up right from the start. It then continues to reel you in with dope songs like “Heart Of A Champion” and “Already Dead.”
As you move deeper into the album, you continue to find gems such as the extremely catchy “Empire” and the hip-hop/EDM influenced “Killin It.” Those tracks give way to one of the effort’s highlights, “Enemy,” which will definitely be a crowd pleaser during the band’s live shows.
Towards the end of the record, there are more surprises as fans are treated with some cool collaborative tracks including the infectious “Upside Down,” which features Kellin Quinn (Sleeping with Sirens), and the rockin’ “Second Chances,” which features Benji Madden (Good Charlotte). Those songs lead up to the closer, “Nightmare,” which wraps everything up with an emotional dose of hip-hop.
All in all, “New Empire, Vol. 1” is a genre bending piece of art that will keep the listener entertained the whole way through. Make sure to check out the album when it’s released on Friday (February 14) and keep an eye out for news on “New Empire, Vol. 2.”

Johnny 3 Tears said the following about the new record:
“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.”
