Hollywood Vampires (opens in new tab) have shared a live video showcasing their new single The Boogieman Surprise.

It’s the second track taken from Alice Cooper (opens in new tab), Joe Perry (opens in new tab) and Johnny Depp (opens in new tab)’s upcoming album Rise, which is set to arrive on June 21 through earMUSIC.

The band, who also feature Tommy Henriksen, Glen Sobel, Chris Wyse and Buck Johnson, previously released the track Who’s Laughing Now (opens in new tab) from the follow-up to their self-titled 2015 debut album.

While The Boogieman Surprise will feature on the new album, it’s been part of the band’s live set since 2018, with the new video captured during Hollywood Vampires’ show at the Montreux Jazz Festival last year.

It’s described as having a “laid-back groove, grinding guitars, and smooth strings” to create “an epic, ominous, outsider anthem.”

Last Saturday night, the Vampires played at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, where they were joined onstage by Marilyn Manson and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler (opens in new tab).
