We Are is the first official single from Hollywood Undead's third official album Notes From The Undearground and will be released as the fifth track on the album. [1]

Composition and Lyrics

The song is sang by several members of the band; Danny singing the chorus, Johnny 3 Tears rapping the first verse and J-Dog rapping the second verse, and the final verse is shouted by the entire band. The song is often put next to the Swan Songs single Young by fans as it has similar vibes and meaning's to the song.

The lyrics of the song where inspired by America's Youth quoted by Johnny 3 Tears, as he continues "...I feel a full-on empathy for what kids are going to have to go through cause it doesn’t seem to be getting any better. In fact, it seems quite the opposite. It’s pretty sickening sometimes, man.” with a interview with Loudwire. [2]

Music Video

The official music video was released on the 10th of December, which was directed by Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan, the percussionist of Slipknot. The music video has various different scenes happening, such as Da Kurlzz isolated in a fenced area being ignored by the crowds walking by, Funny Man robbing a liquor store, Danny smashing up televisions in front of a young and frightened girl, Johnny 3 Tears aligning what appears to be cocaine into the phrase "We Built From Broken Parts" and Charlie Scene setting a suited man on fire. [3] Crohan made sure to add as many different things in the video to keep it visually interesting, and as he explains in the 'Behing the Scenes' video, and it also mentioned that the video was shot in California in what Danny describes "...the most haunted place in California..." [4] which was later revealed in an interview with Charlie Scene by bloody-disgusting.com 'Linda Vista Hospital'. [5]

New Masks

This music video was also the first video by the band to include the latest masks -

  • J-dog: A white mask with two gas mask filters on the cheeks with a dollar symbol and his eyes glow red and Gods all seeing eye on his forehead.
  • Johnny 3 Tears: Left side of his mask consists of the number 3 and his right consists of butterflies with a blue background as before, but this mask has a mosaic design added.
  • Charlie Scene: Dark grey bandanna with matt black specticles, same as before.
  • Funny Man: A black cloth mask with silver outlining, much like a Lucha Libre mask, on the right cheek, 3 dots, on his forehead are his initials FM.
  • Da Kurlzz: More threatening, his left is all sad, while is left is burnt red evil.
  • Danny: Mask seems more metal plated, and the latin cross on his eye has been replaced with bullets.

Lyric Video

Prior to the release of the single, a lyric video was published on Hollywood Undead's official YouTube channel on the 29th of October, a day before the single was released onto iTunes. The video, aswell as providing the lyrics of the song, has various clip scenes of advertisements and urban landscapes, from sky scrapers to rubble.
