Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp and Joe Perry Deliver New Hollywood Vampires

The Hollywood Vampires, the supergroup featuring Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp and Aerosmith’s Joe Perry, have a new song ‘Who’s Laughing Now’ and a new album ‘Rise’ on the way.

That first Hollywood Vampires album of 2015 was mainly covers. ‘Rise’ is an album of mainly originals.

“‘Rise’ is not only a totally different animal than the first Vampires album, it is unique to anything I’ve ever been a part of,” Alice Cooper said in a statement. “I approached it very differently than I usually do when working on an album. Each of us; Joe, Johnny, Tommy and myself have written songs on this album. What is different though is that I didn’t try to change any songs to be more “Alice-like.” Because each of us has different influences, the sound of this album is very cool. I think that with this album, we are establishing what the Vampires’ sound really is, whereas with the first album we were more tipping our hats to our fallen rock n roll brothers.”

The non-originals are David Bowie’s “Heroes”, performed by Johnny Depp; the late Jim Carroll Band’s “People Who Died,” and Johnny Thunder’s “You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory,” sung by Joe Perry

Joe Perry said, “’Rise’ came from pure creative energy, which is just like playing live with the Vampires. The record showcases everyone doing what they do best without anyone looking over our shoulders. There was no pressure or deadlines, allowing us to write and record an album that is one of the freest and most honest sounding records I’ve been part of. I can’t wait to perform some of these tunes live for our fans.”
