LA rock band Hollywood Undead have today announced that they will return to the UK for the first time since summer 2011 where they completed a headline tour culminating in a main stage performance at Download Festival. The tour will see the band four shows across Birmingham, London, Glasgow and Manchester in November 2014. Hollywood Undead tickets go on-sale 9am on Friday 16th May.
Ever since they clawed their way into the mainstream with their 2008 near platinum-selling debut Swan Songs and its acclaimed 2010 follow-up American Tragedy, the masked Los Angeles collective-Johnny 3 Tears, J-Dog, Charlie Scene, Danny, Funny Man, and Da Kurlzz-never lost sight of where they came from. Their third full-length album Notes From The Underground was released last year to equal acclaim.
The band have played sold out headline shows all over the world as well as rousing appearances at festivals such as the UK's Download and Rock on the Range, Epicenter, and more in the U.S. Their music has also received prime placements everywhere from the trailer trailer for Paramount's hit film, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra to Madden NFL 2009. Meanwhile, in 2011, legends such as Jonathan Davis of Korn and KMFDM contributed remixes to American Tragedy Redux.
Even as the legend expands, Hollywood Undead will never lose their roots in the Underground. "We stay true to who we are musically," says Danny. "If even just one kid identifies with what we do, we've done our job."
