The Hollywood Vampires, the band featuring Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry, Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp, and shock rock icon Alice Cooper are back with a brand new record. The band will release Rise on June 21 and are streaming their new single "Who's Laughing Now" below. Here's what Alice Cooper had to say about the debut single.
"Rise is not only a totally different animal than the first Vampires album, it is unique to anything I've ever been a part of. I approached it very differently than I usually do when working on an album. Each of us; Joe, Johnny, Tommy, and myself have written songs on this album. What is different though is that I didn't try to change any songs to be more 'Alice-like.' Because each of us has different influences, the sound of this album is very cool. I think that with this album, we are establishing what the Vampires' sound really is, whereas with the first album, we were more tipping our hats to our fallen rock 'n' roll brothers."
The record also features covers of "Heroes" by David Bowie, "People Who Died" by Jim Carroll Band, and "You Can't Put Your Arms Around A Memory" by Johnny Thunders. Pre-order Rise here.
