The Hollywood Vampires have a few new album projects in works. The hard-rock supergroup mainly comprised of Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry, Alice Cooper, and Johnny Depp will attempt to release two new albums before the end of the year, according to a post shared by Perry to his Instagram on Wednesday.
“Super-group The Hollywood Vampires has revealed they are planning on releasing two albums this year,” reads the social media statement. “Alice Cooper has said that the band will be unleashing a live album recorded last year in Europe, as well as their second studio record, comprised of originals sung by Cooper and three covers handled by Joe Perry and Johnny Depp.”
The announcement didn’t go on to reveal any further details on either of the albums, but fans should assume that at least one of them will arrive around the time the rock band hits the road for their upcoming spring tour, which begins on May 10th in Las Vegas.
The band released their self-titled debut in September 2015, which was comprised of classic rock covers and three originals, with guest appearances from Paul McCartney, The Doors’ Robby Krieger, Orianthi, Dave Grohl, late actor Christopher Lee, Slash, ACDC’s Brian Johnson, Joe Walsh, and Perry Farrell. The band’s unique name was inspired by a drinking club which Cooper co-founded in the 1970s along with some of his famous friends including John Lennon, John Belushi, Joe Walsh, and longtime Elton John collaborator Bernie Taupin.
Joe Perry will have a busy schedule ahead of him in the coming months. Aside from planning the release of two Hollywood Vampire albums, Perry will rejoin his Aerosmith bandmates when their “Deuces Are Wild” Las Vegas Residency at the Park Theater at Park MGM Resort begins on April 6th.
