Watch Hollywood Undead’s video for Whatever It Takes

Hollywood Undead

Hollywood Undead have released a video for their track Whatever It Takes, which appears on upcoming album Five. View it above.

The promo was directed by vocalist-guitarist Charlie Scene, who says: “The song is about being driven by your own determination to succeed no matter what anyone else thinks. I wanted the video to show that same message.”

The title “Five” has multiple meanings for the band. They report: “We have five senses. Five points adorn a star. Five represents man in theology. For the five members of Hollywood Undead the digit perfectly encapsulates their fifth full-length offering.”

Johnny 3 Tears adds: “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. The number is significant, and this is a significant moment for us.”

The album is released on October 27 via Dove & Grenade Media / BMG and it’savailable for pre-order now. Hollywood Undead commence a European tour in January, starting with a run of UK dates – see them below.
