The legendary rock supergroup HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES, who were born in the upstairs bar of the RAINBOW BAR & GRILL on HOLLYWOOD's SUNSET STRIP in the '70s and resuscitated by founding member ALICE COOPER and good friend JOHNNY DEPP, have partnered with EPIC RIGHTS and GLOBAL MERCHANDISING SERVICES to create rock-themed apparel, collectibles, wall art and more through their network of licensees. The all-new merchandise, licensing, e-commerce and digital media agreement encompasses concert merchandise, brand opportunities, fan experiences and licensing and retail strategies. In addition, EPIC RIGHTS and GLOBAL will manage the band's official online merchandise shop.
COOPER and DEPP were joined by AEROSMITH's JOE PERRY, along with producer BOB EZRIN to record a brand-new, self-titled album, released on SEPTEMBER 11th, followed by two live performances at THE ROXY in L.A. and an international appearance at ROCK IN RIO in BRAZIL.
EPIC RIGHTS CEO DELL FURANO and GLOBAL's BARRY DRINKWATER jointly stated: "HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES embodies the spirit of the music and artists that really defined the rock attitude and lifestyle we all secretly aspire to, and the mystique surrounding the club translates effortlessly into classic rock merchandise. Now that ALICE and JOHNNY have resurrected the band, it is fueling fan demand for merchandise and social media interaction, and the possibilities are limitless."
