HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD Releases Video For 'We Own The Night'
October 13, 2017
"We Own The Night", the new video from HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band's fifth full-length album, "V" (Five),which will be released on October 27.
HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD's Johnny 3 Tears told Loudwire about the track: "That is very specific. One night, after the studio, we were out getting drunk, I'll be honest. And we went down to Hollywood Boulevard and which, to be honest with you, I don't do very often anymore. I used to live down there, pretty much, but all the bars are different now. Anyway, we were doing it. We were walking around and we really wanted to write a song about the nocturnal qualities of the city.
"It's weird, because you can be in one spot and it's a different world than that twelve hours later, it's completely different. You've got everything going on, there's the bank and there's the supermarket and everyone's doing their normal thing, and then twelve hours later, instead of selling food, they're selling crack and all these other things. It was a take on the nocturnal aspects of our lives and we thought it would be cool to tell that story.
"We've always been on the darker side, subject matter-wise, with music. I suppose that's just the way we are. It was our take on those things. I never liked 'party music,' you know, 'Let's party all night.' I've always looked at the other sides of those things. It's just a take on that activity and where we were at at that point."
Regarding the "V" title, Johnny 3 Tears said: "We're five brothers, and this is our fifth record. Nothing gets to the essence of the music like this number does. Numerology has a lot of power. When we said 'Five', it just made sense. The fact that we could all agree on one word codifies who we are. It also nods back to 'No. 5' from our first album, because it was our fifth song. Moreover, it hints at this secret society of fans supporting us for the past decade. The number is significant, and this is a significant moment for us."
