Speaking about the follow-up to their self-titled 2015 debut album, guitarist Perry said: “Rise came from pure creative energy, which is just like playing live with the Vampires. The record showcases everyone doing what they do best without anyone looking over our shoulders. 

“There was no pressure or deadlines, allowing us to write and record an album that is one of the freest and most honest sounding records I’ve been part of.”

Hollywood Vampires have released three tracks from the new record so far: Who’s Laughing NowThe Boogieman Surprise and their cover of David Bowie classic Heroes, which features Depp of lead vocals.
