Hollywood Undead is an American rap rock band from Los Angeles, California. The group was formed in 2005. In early 2010, the group announces the departure of its singer Deuce. Deuce will soon be replaced by Daniel Murillo, nicknamed Danny. They have four albums: Swan Songs in 2008, followed two years later by Desperate Measures which contains both unpublished songs, covers, live recorded songs and a 60-minute DVD of a concert. The album American Tragedy is published on April 5, 2011. The single Hear Me Now has been available since December 21, 2010 and on February 5, 2011 at midnight, the band is putting on line a new song from their latest album, entitled Comin 'In Hot', it's Danny's debut album since Deuce's departure.
Their third album Notes from the Underground is published on January 8, 2013>. The fourth album of the group entitled Day of the Dead is published on March 31, 2015>. Their fifth album, titled V, is scheduled for October 27, 2017. On November 2 of the following year, the band released an EP titled Psalms that features 5 songs.
The group was formed on June 3, 2005 under the name of The Kids. The band is composed of Jorel Decker (J-Dog) and Aron Erlichman (Deuce). They are soon joined by Jeff Philips (Shady-Jeff), George Ragan (Johnny 3 Tears or Tha Server), Jordon Terrell (Charlie Scene), Dylan Alvarez (Funny Man), and Matthew Busek (Da Kurlzz).
Some time later, Shady leaves the group as a result of a conflict with Deuce. Shady explains that during her birthday party, Deuce is aggressive towards guests. After threatening to call the police, Shady turns Deuce with a gun to force him to leave, telling him that no one had the right to threaten him or his family. Deuce later asserts in an interview that Shady had pointed the gun at him for no apparent reason. Shady is now working as a mechanic. During these two years, the band searched at length for a record company that would not try to censor their first album. They all signed a contract with MySpace Records in 2005, which wanted to censor the album. So it's at A & M / Octone Records that they sign.
