Hollywood Undead announced a Danny Wimmer-produced streaming event Tuesday.

Hollywood Undead announced Hollywood Undead House Party, described in a press release as “a wild, no holds barred, virtual global party event,” on Tuesday.

The hard-rock band’s streaming event, slated for Dec. 18, is the latest show to be staged by Danny Wimmer Presents, and promises a mix of classic Hollywood Undead songs and material from forthcoming album New Empire Vol. 2, due out Dec. 4.

“While we can’t get everyone together in a venue to party, we wanted to do the next best thing and host a night they’ll never forget – but won’t remember the next day,” Hollywood Undead’s Johnny 3 Tears said in a statement.

Early-bird tickets for Hollywood Undead House Party are available now for $12.99, but increase in price on Dec. 1.

The show continues Danny Wimmer Presents’ embrace of the digital space and alternative content models during the pandemic. In October, DWP staged paid livestreams of Slipknot’s Corey Taylor and Puscifer, side project of Tool’s Maynard James Keenan, from Southern California’s The Forum and Arizona’s Arcosanti, respectively.

DWP also got into the drive-in game with “The American Drive-In Tour,” a multi-date run by Godsmack’s Sully Erna and Staind’s Aaron Lewis where the two hard-rockers played their hits side by side.

Earlier in the pandemic, DWP launched “Offstage With DWP,” featuring streamed archival content by the likes of Metallica and Foo Fighters.

“While a lot of companies out there big and small are just sort of paused, the message DWP has for the entertainment industry is that we’re open for business,” the company’s Joe Litvag, who joined DWP as president of live events over the summer, told Pollstar in August. “We’re open to explore new opportunities that make sense within the company’s business model.”
