HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD's new single, "Gotta Let Go", now has an impressive video to accompany it. The offering showcases a raw, authentic performance from the quintet and follows the main character during the final moments of his life, including a surreal encounter in outer space where he learns to finally let go of the past. Watch it below.
"We wanted the 'Gotta Let Go' video to be a visceral experience about letting go of something we all have to part with in the end," says Johnny 3 Tears (vocals, bass guitar). "Our mortality is what gives life its defining purpose. It's our greatest gift and our greatest cross to bear. We wanted to capture that delicate legacy in our own way, and this video was our interpretation of life...and its inevitable ending."
"Gotta Let Go" marks a shift in HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD's sound, highlighting a more melodic and upbeat side of the band. More new music is also on the way — "Gotta Let Go" is the first of a batch of new songs to be released over the coming months.
2018 has been a massive year for HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD. The band recently clocked 1.1 billion total U.S. streams across their catalog, as well as garnering 1.7 million total Shazams, 57 million total global streams of their latest album, "Five", and 30 million views on all six music videos from the record. Their music has also landed on a number of impressive playlists: Spotify's "New Music Friday" and "New Noise" and Apple Music's "The A List Rock." The five-piece have also accumulated 5.5 million total Pandora artist station adds and 2.7 million total Pandora radio spins on their latest album.
After wrapping their headline tour across Europe, HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD will head back to North America for a short run of dates across the northeastern U.S. and Canada. The band will play headliners in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire and Poughkeepsie, New York, followed by slots at Bangor, Maine's Impact music festival and Montréal, Quebec's Heavy Montreal. The guys will also perform at the legendary Reading and Leeds festivals in August.
