About Hollywood Undead:
Since the release of Hollywood Undead’s RIAA platinum-certified 2008 debut album, Swan Songs, the band’s distinctive and infectious music has incited a cult audience of millions of fans, resulting in sold out shows across the globe, in addition to receiving nods in the press from the likes of Consequence of Sound, Billboard, Alternative Press, Rolling Stone, and Revolver. The quintet, comprised of Johnny 3 Tears (vocals, bass guitar), J-Dog (vocals, guitar, bass guitar, keyboards, synthesizer, programming) Charlie Scene (vocals, guitar), Funny Man (vocals), and Danny (vocals, keyboards, guitar, bass), have garnered massive mainstream appeal, with their 2011 sophomore record, American Tragedy, going gold and hitting #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Their 2013 full-length, Notes From The Underground, seized the #2 spot, and in 2018, Hollywood Undead crossed 1 billion total global streams across their catalog.Legends such as B-Real of Cypress Hill and Jonathan Davis of Korn have also jumped at the chance to collaborate with the boys over the years.
About Bad Wolves:
Bad Wolves consists of vocalist Tommy Vext (ex-Divine Heresy), drummer John Boecklin (ex-Devildriver), guitarist Doc Coyle (ex-God Forbid), guitarist Chris Cain (Bury Your Dead), and bassist Kyle Konkiel (ex-In This Moment). They released their debut album, Disobey (May 2018), via Better Noise Music, which reached #22 on the Billboard Top 200, #2 on the Hard Rock Chart, #4 on Rock, and #8 on the Top Current Albums Chart. Their single, “Remember When” reached #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart for 2019. Their global breakout single, “Zombie,” is platinum in the U.S. and Sweden, double platinum in Canada, gold in Australia and IMPALA Diamond in Europe. The track has topped charts worldwide, including the U.S. iTunes overall and rock charts, Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs chart, Spotify’s Global Viral 50 chart, while also reigning atop the Active Rock radio chart for three straight weeks. The official music video for “Zombie,” a tribute to the late singer Dolores O’Riordan of The Cranberries and an homage to the original, has garnered over 255 million views across platforms. On June 19th, 2018, Bad Wolves presented a $250,000 check to O’Riordan’s four children, with a continued promise to donate all of their royalties from the song to them. In 2019, they continued that momentum with their sophomore album, N.A.T.I.O.N. The stunning 12-track follow-up to their debut album, Disobey, is a bit of a departure – staying in the same realm musically, but breaking beyond. N.A.T.I.O.N. came in at #1 upon its release on the Top Hard Rock, Current Hard Rock and Billboard Hard Rock charts. The first single from N.A.T.I.O.N. – “Killing Me Slowly” – is the band’s 4th consecutive #1 song at Active Rock radio.
About From Ashes To New:
The story of From Ashes to New is truly that of pursuing a dream regardless of the obstacles that may arise. The band’s debut album Day One earned the band a Top 10 track at Active Rock radio with the single “Through It All.” They bettered that number on the next album The Future, with a number 2 track “CRAZY.” The Lancaster, Pennsylvania-based band, now comprised of frontman / rapper / programmer Matt Brandyberry, guitarist Lance Dowdle, vocalist Danny Case, and drummer Mat Madiro (Trivium), is poised to reach new heights.
About Fire From The Gods:
Armed with a bold hybrid of rock, metal and hip-hop, Fire From The Gods punch through genre and cultural barriers and make a provocative and powerful statement with each subsequent album. Averaging 450k monthly listeners on Spotify with nearly 50 million total streams as of 2020, the Austin, TX outfit introduced themselves on 2016’s Narrative and expanded 2017 follow-up Narrative Retold. Signing to Five Finger Death Punch guitarist and mastermind Zoltan Bathory for management and Eleven Seven Music for label in 2019, the group served up its most potent offering yet, American Sun, which sees them adopting the tagline “In Us We Trust” meaning “we the people” are responsible for change. The album’s first single “Right Now” racked up 3.4 million Spotify streams in a few months’ time and is climbing the Active Rock charts from a current #11 position. Fire From The Gods continue to support the release of their sophomore album with strong touring following an arena tour with Five Finger Death Punch and playing sold-out shows across Europe and the UK in early 2020.
