HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD has released a brand new video for the song “Black Cadillac”, taken from the band’s latest album, “V”. The video and the track both feature B-Real from CYPRESS HILL.
“We haven’t done a straight-up hip-hop song like this in a while, so this one made sense, and we got B-Real on it, who we all grew up listening to. It was an honor to have him participate,” said HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD‘s J-Dog.
“Filming the video was a bitch! Brian Cox had to find a black cadillac in nowhere Minnesota; then we filmed shots in The Rave in Milwaukee, at a cemetery in Pennsylvania and on a green screen in Calgary Canada. But it was all worth it.”
“V” was released on October 27 via Dove & Grenade Media/BMG and debuted on the Billboard Top 200 album chart at #22 and #7 on the Top Current Albums sales chart. The album is the band’s fifth Top 25 debut overall.
The number five holds a deep significance and for the five members of HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD — Johnny 3 Tears, J-Dog, Charlie Scene, Funny Man and Danny.
“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.”
HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD is currently wrapping up a North American tour that launched in September with BUTCHER BABIES as support. European dates will begin on January 24 in Glasgow, U.K. at the O2 Academy.
