HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES have unveiled the brand-new song "The Boogieman Surprise". At the aforementioned L.A. performance, Steven Tyler, the AEROSMITH frontman and longtime musical partner of Joe Perry, turned up for a guest appearance, as did Marilyn Manson. Johnny Depp took lead vocals on David Bowie’s "Heroes" and the "world’s most expensive bar band," as proclaimed by Alice Cooper, delivered a live master class of rock ‘n’ roll, which included "The Boogieman Surprise".
The song has been part of the band’s live set since the 2018 world tour and is a highlight of every HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES live show. Written by the band, it features the undeniable chemistry between rock and roll royalty Perry, Hollywood superstar Depp and shock rock icon Cooper. A laid-back groove, grinding guitars, and smooth strings create an epic, ominous, outsider anthem with Cooper’s vocal sounding as fierce as ever. Their stage telepathy is showcased in the accompanying live video, filmed at the Montreux Jazz Festival 2018.
"Rise", the band’s second album, 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, "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 "Heroes", again beautifully performed on record by Depp; the JIM CARROLL BAND’s "People Who Died" and Johnny Thunders’s "You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory", sung by Perry.
Produced by Tommy Henriksen and the HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES, "Rise" will be released on June 21 on earMUSIC as a CD digipak, 2LP+download and digital.
"Rise" track listing:
01. I Want My Now 02. Good People Are Hard To Find 03. Who’s Laughing Now 04. How The Glass Fell
05. The Boogieman Surprise 06. Welcome to Bushwackers (feat. Jeff Beck + John Waters) 07. The Wrong Bandage 08. You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory 09. Git From Round Me 10. Heroes 11. A Pitiful Beauty 12. New Threat 13. Mr. Spider 14. We Gotta Rise 15. People Who Died 16. Congratulations
Completing the HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES live lineup are rock star musician friends Glen Sobel(ALICE COOPER) on drums, Chris Wyse (THE CULT) on bass, and Buck Johnson(AEROSMITH) on keyboard and vocals.
