Back on March 31, Hollywood Undead released their fourth studio album, Day Of The Dead through Interscope Records. Hollywood Undead is known for being high energy, and something special, and this album is no different.
There's plenty of your fun, catchy, party type songs, but there's a few pretty meaningful ones too. You have "Take Me Home" which tells a very interesting story that shouldn't be explained, only listened to. There's enough to it to make a pretty great plot line for a book, and someone should get on that.
Then you have "Dark Places" which is all about working toward something even though things are going wrong. That is a message I can get behind! "When you come from nothing, you want to die for something. So I started to run and just kept on gunning." This is definitely the best track on the album!
Then there's more party type tracks like "War Child", "How We Roll" and "Usual Suspects."
Over all, its a decent album, but may not exactly be for everyone. If you're in it for the meaning, you're not going to love it. If you're in it for fun though, you just may love it. Either way, if you are interested, you can get the album now on iTunes and can catch Hollywood Undead on tour with Crown The Empire starting September 8. In the middle of that tour will be the Rock Allegiance festival, and just after it concludes will be the Aftershock festival! For more information, please visit the respective websites.
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
