Deriving from Hollywood, four-piece metalcore disrupters HOLLYWOOD NIGHTMARE have released their punch-to-the-gut, leading single/video “Temptation (Jager Swag),” pulled from their sophomore album Inferno, out now and released independently. Marking the group’s first collection release since their 2019 debut Scary AF and first new music since 2021, Hollywood Nightmare resurrects the crunchy metalcore made popular amongst Warped Tour mainstage acts such as Escape The Fate and Motionless In White and highlights the group’s expert guitar work and Kyle Davies’ dynamic vocal delivery.
“The fun fact about this song is that from music to the video, it’s all a drunk idea,” the band shares of the track. “Someone on Scott’s live stream challenged him to come up with a banger on the spot, at that point, he was so drunk after 3 shooters of Jager Meister and he was so addicted to ‘The Dirt’ at that time, that’s why it sounds like a Glam-Core kind of vibe. With the support and input from everyone in the group, this video made everyone smile, and we believe that it is a good sign.”
