Interscope/UMe to release tenth-anniversary two-LP vinyl edition of Hollywood Undead’s landmark debut ‘Swan Songs,’ on May 11
LOS ANGELES, March 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — In 2008, Hollywood Undead’s explosive, platinum selling debut album Swan Songs rose from the streets of Tinseltown, delivering a raw, edgy mix of rock, hip-hop and metalcore. Building an enthusiastic fan base through social media, the band—whose members wore stylized masks on stage—grew to include six members: J-Dog, Tha Producer, Charlie Scene, Johnny 3 Tears, Funny Man and Da Kurlzz.
On May 11, Interscope/UMe celebrates Swan Songs‘ tenth anniversary with the album’s first-ever vinyl release, in a specially packaged, two-LP edition, as well as a limited edition, two-LP set on 140-gram blue-vinyl. Only 500 copies of the blue-vinyl version will be pressed and available exclusively from the online retailer uDiscover.
The 14-song album encapsulates the brash, rebellious attitude that’s kept Hollywood Undead going ever since. Throughout Swan Songs, Hollywood Undead deliver sharply humorous raps that slash at the jugular of mainstream pop culture, with tracks like “No. 5,” “Undead,” “Sell Your Soul” and “California” reflecting a dark, transgressive aesthetic that comments on their hometown’s depravity.
Despite the controversy and threats of censorship that accompanied Swan Songs‘ release, the album reached No. 22 on the Billboard Top 200 and spent more than a year and a half on the album chart. It also proved to be the kickoff for a long and productive career that’s established Hollywood Undead as a reliably popular act, spawning the successful subsequent albums American Tragedy, Notes from the Underground, Day of the Dead and Five.
Now, with this anniversary release of the album that started it all, the Hollywood Undead experience is more compelling than ever on heavy-duty vinyl!
