The number five holds a deep significance. We have five senses. Five points adorn a star. Five represents man in theology. For the five members of HOLLYWOOD UNDEADJohnny 3 Tears, J-Dog, Charlie Scene, Funny Man, and Danny—the digit perfectly encapsulates their fifth full-length offering—Five[Dove & Grenade Media/BMG]. Fans can pre-order the new album from HERE.

“We’re five brothers, and this is our fifth record,” affirms Johnny 3 Tears. “Nothing gets to the essence of the music like this number does. Numerology has a lot of power. When we said Five, it just made sense. The fact that we could all agree on one word codifies who we are. It also nods back to "No. 5" from our first album, because it was our fifth song. Moreover, it hints at this secret society of fans supporting us for the past decade. The number is significant, and this is a significant moment for us.”

The band have just released the first single/video from their forthcoming album called “California Dreaming”. You can check out the world premiere of the video on KNAC.COM HERE.

Powered by neck-snapping guitars and fast and furious bars, the song cycles between guttural rapping and quick quips. Everything culminates on the choral chant “We never sleep, in California we’re dreaming.”

“It dissects both sides of California,” J-Dog reveals. “You’ve got the glitz, glamour, sun, and surf. Then, you’ve got the super fucked side of people not being able to afford rent, celebrities being assholes, and that fake façade. We wanted to do a heavy song with a RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS-esque chorus. It’s an old school vibe explored in a new way.”

Known for atomic live performances, the quintet regularly sells out shows around the world from Massachusetts and Miami to Moscow and Manchester. They’ve toured alongside the likes of AVENGED SEVENFOLD, KORN, and STONE SOUR in addition to notching features from Billboard, Rolling Stone, Alternative Press, Revolver, and more.

The band is pleased to announce a new set of dates in support of V which will begin on September 30th at the Louder Than Life festival. Tickets and VIP Packages for all shows go on sale this Friday at 10AM local in each city. For all U.S. headline shows, BUTCHER BABIES will serve as direct support.

Since the release of their RIAA platinum-certified 2008 debut, Swan Songs, the group’s unmistakable and inebriating distillation of rock, hip-hop, industrial, and electronic has incited the rise of a bona fide cult audience comprised of millions. For the uninitiated, think Trent Reznor producing Enter The Wu-Tang Clan – 36 Chambers in 2020, and you’re halfway there…Quietly infecting the mainstream, their 2011 sophomore effort American Tragedy went gold and bowed at #4 on the Billboard Top 200, while 2013’s Notes From The Underground seized #2. In 2015, Day Of The Dead spawned another smash in the form of the title track, which amassed 21.1 million Spotify streams and 17 million YouTube/VEVO views.
