Hollywood Undead have released the new single "We Are" from their forthcoming album Notes From The Underground and sent over these details about the track.
The song is being serviced to Modern and Active Rock Radio. "We Are" reunites the band with producer Danny Lohner [Nine Inch Nails, Puscifer], Johnny 3 Tears explains, "The song is about collective resistance. It's the silent majority, but we're using Los Angeles as the backdrop. Every time we work with Danny, he takes our music to the next level. He's willing to go as far outside the box as we are. As a whole, it's a good introduction to Notes From The Underground because it encompasses the band idealistically. Think of it as an ode to our misled youth."
The album title is an homage to the Fyodor Dostoyevsky novela Johnny 3 Tears personal favoritethe moniker alludes to what's really under the mask. "We've maintained an underground identity," Johnny 3 Tears remarked. "When we write songs, we're coming from a place people don't like to look at or talk about openly. As people get older, they get used to lying. We have a bond with so many kids because they have a trace of that honesty. They don't know how bad some things get yet. We tell them the truth."
