Hollywood Vampires Releases New Single "Who's Laughing Now"

Hollywood Vampires have finally unveiled a new song from the band's forthcoming sophomore album.

The album has been in the works for over a year while core members Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Johnny Depp juggled multiple projects in 2018.

The bass guitar-driven lead single, "Who's Laughing Now" features both vocals by both Cooper and Depp, the latter of whom took the lead on the album's lyrics. The new album, Rise, is due out June 21.

Cooper explained last summer, when Hollywood Vampires did the bulk of its recording for Rise, that one of the most exciting things for him about the new album was letting Depp take the conceptual reigns. The Godfather of Shock Rock praised the actor for pouring his soul into the new batch of songs.

Being that Cooper is accustomed to driving the creative aspects of his own band, he added that it was a nice change to worry only about his own performance.

"I come in and do a littler surgery on the lyrics," Cooper explained at the time. "But it's interested for me to be singing about Johnny's angst."

The single comes as the band prepares for a short run of live concerts in mid-May.
