THE HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES ARE BACK WITH ONE OF THE MOST-ANTICIPATED ROCK ALBUMS
OF THE YEAR!
'RISE' WILL BE RELEASED ON JUNE 21st, 2019 via earMUSIC,
THE FIRST SINGLE “WHO’S LAUGHING NOW?” IS AVAILABLE NOW!!
The Hollywood Vampires return with new music from their explosive second album, “Rise.”
Rock n' roll royalty Joe Perry, Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp and shock-rock icon Alice Cooper join forces once again for the most-unmissable rock album of 2019.
Listening to 'Rise', it’s clear this supergroup has created something special - the chemistry between the individuals is unmistakable when they come together on stage or in the recording studio. Forget the star-studded lineup’s individual reputations, 'Rise' is some of the purest, unapologetic and most enjoyable rock and roll of the year, made by masters of the craft and true fans of the form.
Unlike their 2015 debut record, the new album “Rise” consists mainly of original material, written by the band. There are however, in the spirit of the Vampires’ original mission, three covers of songs originally written and recorded by some fellow rockers who died far too young: an intimate and intense version of David Bowie’s “Heroes”, beautifully performed by Johnny Depp; the late Jim Carroll Band’s “People Who Died,” and Johnny Thunder’s “You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory,” sung by Joe Perry. Raucous rock anthems like “Who’s Laughing Now”, the first single from the new album, captures the natural, raw, celebratory attitude of Hollywood Vampires displayed in their rowdy shows around the world.
"‘Rise' is not only a totally different animal than the first Vampires album, it is unique to anything I’ve ever been a part of. I approached it very differently than I usually do when working on an album. Each of us; Joe, Johnny, and myself have written songs on this album. What is different though is that I didn’t try to change any songs to be more "Alice-like." Because each of us has different influences, the sound of this album is very cool. I think that with this album, we are establishing what the Vampires’ sound really is, whereas with the first album we were more tipping our hats to our fallen rock n roll brothers.” – Alice Cooper
“’Rise’ came from pure creative energy, which is just like playing live with the Vampires. The record showcases everyone doing what they do best without anyone looking over our shoulders. There was no pressure or deadlines, allowing us to write and record an album that is one of the freest and most honest sounding records I’ve been part of. I can’t wait to perform some of these tunes live for our fans.” – Joe Perry
