The past few months have been a blur for Hollywood Undead. The SoCal Rap Metal sextet celebrated their A&M/Octone debut, ironically titled Swan Song, last September and promptly took the show that made them one of the Hollywood club scene’s hottest draws to a national audience.

Hollywood Undead began as high school friends (Johnny, J-Dog, Deuce, Charlie Scene) playing in various conventional Hard Rock band structures. When things didn’t progress, they briefly abandoned music. But they reassembled four years ago with two new members — Funny Man and Da Kurlzz — and the idea to create something new from their previous and subsequent experiences.

They play Bogarts with with Senses Fail, Brokencyde and Haste the Day. Get Sound Advice here.
