In 2008, Hollywood Undead's explosive, platinum selling debut album Swan Songs rose from the streets of Tinseltown, delivering a raw, edgy mix of rock, hip-hop and metalcore. The 14-song album encapsulates the brash, rebellious attitude that's kept Hollywood Undead going ever since. Throughout Swan Songs, the band delivers sharply humorous raps that slash at the jugular of mainstream pop culture, with tracks like "No. 5," "Undead," "Sell Your Soul" and "California" reflecting a dark, transgressive aesthetic that comments on their hometown's depravity.
Despite the controversy and threats of censorship that accompanied Swan Songs' release, the album reached No. 22 on the Billboard Top 200 and spent more than a year and a half on the album chart. It also proved to be the kickoff for a long and productive career that's established Hollywood Undead as a reliably popular act, spawning the successful subsequent albums American Tragedy, Notes from the Underground, Day of the Dead and Five.
Interscope/UMe celebrates Swan Songs' 10th anniversary with the album's first-ever vinyl release, in a specially packaged, two-LP edition.
