Hollywood Undead have shared a new video for Nightmare.
While quarantined separately, the band have put together a powerful video for the closing track of their latest album New Empire, Vol 1.
“As it became apparent when we got home from tour that we were going to be put on a national lockdown, like many others in the world, a lot of our plans came to a halt.” Says Johnny 3 Tears.
“We started to think of the things that we could do in the situation. One was make more music which we are in the process of doing, and the other was make a video for ‘Nightmare’. We felt the subject matter was more relevant at that point than any other. The scenario certainly helped inspire making the video, I suppose in the end it’s an attempt make a positive out of a terrible situation. It’s like living in an Orwell book, but Orwell didn’t know we would have a videographer.”
Produced by Matt Good (Sleeping With Sirens, Asking Alexandria), New Empire, Vol. 1 comprises nine high-energy tracks that showcase the band embracing a heavier, hard-rock sound. Fans may recognize guest vocals from Sleeping With Sirens’ Kellin Quinn on Upside Down, and Good Charlotte’s Benji Madden on Second Chances.
