Los Angeles quintet, Hollywood Undead have announced the second instalment of their critically-acclaimed two part opus, New Empire. New Empire Vol. 2 will be released on Friday, December 4th via BMG/Dove and Grenade Media.

In addition to the new album announcement, the band have also released a new version of fan-favourite track, ‘Heart of a Champion’ taken from the first album New Empire Vol. 1 featuring special guests Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach and Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills. 

Speaking on the track, Hollywood Undead’s Johnny 3 Tears says: 

“Heart Of A Champion is about digging in deep when things appear at their worst. Finding the strength to overcome any and all odds against you.”

Jacoby Shaddix adds:

“As soon as Johnny and Charlie and the boys floated the idea, we were in. The video shoot was like a reunion too – Last time we all saw each other we were blowing the doors off a show in Germany 7 months ago.”

Spencer Charnas adds:

“I’ve always been a fan of Hollywood Undead and when we toured together this past winter we hit it off immediately. It’s an honor to be part of such a strong song and having Jacoby on it as well is just the icing on the god damn cake.”

This track has it all. Guitars to knock down walls and immaculate delivery on the rapped verses. But again it’s the chorus where the song comes alive.
