Hollywood Undead Announce New Empire Vol. 2 Album and Drop “Heart Of A Champion” Music Video ft. Jacoby Shaddix and Spencer Charnas

Hollywood Undead have announced the second installment of their critically-acclaimed two part opus, New EmpireNew Empire Vol. 2 produced by Matt Good (Asking Alexandria, Sleeping with Sirens) will be released on Friday, December 4th via BMG/Dove and Grenade Media. New Empire Vol. 2 can be preordered here

In addition to the new album announcement, Hollywood Undead have also released a new version of fan-favourite track, “Heart of a Champion” featuring special guests Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach and Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills. The long-overdue collaboration was created in January this year in anticipation of the three musical titans hitting the road in Europe. That release was subsequently delayed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, which ground the touring world as well as their own highly successful European Tour, to a halt. Today, the long-awaited collaboration has been finally unleashed on the world.

Speaking on the track, Hollywood Undead’s Johnny 3 Tears says 

Heart of a champion is about digging in deep when things appear at their worst. Finding the strength to overcome any and all odds against you.

Jacoby Shaddix adds

““As soon as Johnny and Charlie and the boys floated the idea, we were in. The video shoot was like a reunion too – Last time we all saw each other we were blowing the doors off a show in Germany 7 months ago”” 

Spencer Charnas adds

“I’ve always been a fan of Hollywood Undead and when we toured together this past winter we hit it off immediately. It’s an honor to be part of such a strong song and having Jacoby on it as well is just the icing on the god damn cake.”
