Johnny 3 Tears of Hollywood Undead discusses New Empire 2 on Mosh Talks

Posted by Ramon Gonzales in Mosh Talks on August 7, 2020

Johnny discusses the double record, the unreal work ethic of Tech N9ne, and gives a shoutout to Pornhub.

Though the world is at a standstill, Hollywood Undead continue to charge ahead. The band recently released the first single from the second installment of their two-part epic, New Empire.

“Idol” features Tech N9ne and offers another example of the band’s ability to blend genres fluidly. 15 years into their career and relevant as ever, Hollywood Undead released the first installment of New Empire in February of 2020 and are now gearing up for second portion of the collection.

Johnny 3 Tears checked in on the Knotfest series MOSH TALKS to discuss the recent collaboration with Tech N9ne and concept behind releasing a double record.

In championing the work ethic of Tech N9ne (Tech was also featured on Corey Taylor’s solo debut single. “CMFT Must Be Stopped”), Johnny also confirmed there are more guest features on New Empire 2 including Killstation and a yet-to-be-named artist that is big enough to be worried about announcing.

From the skepticism of releasing a double record to Pornhub, the guys cover a lot of ground in a short time. Watch the exchange on Mosh Talks below.
