Johnny Depp Shapeshifts In Serbia (VIDEO)

2018 wasn’t exactly a good year for actor/rocker Johnny Depp. His ongoing battle versus his ex wife, Amber Heard, has reached a new level of disgraceful, on top of the fact that Depp was fired by Disney from working on any future Jack Sparrow Pirate films, he got sued by his own business manager (and lost a multi million dollar settlement), along with being taken to court by his own bodyguards for acting too belligerent on the movie set, not to forget another man who claims the actor punched him in the gut after losing his cool.

“Prior to ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ – the first one in 2003 – I had been essentially known within the confines of Hollywood as box office poison, you know what I’m saying? You know, I basically had built a career on 20 years of failures.” – Johnny Depp

DEMON HUNTER – Premiere New Music Video

DEMON HUNTER have issued a new music video for “More Than Bones,” a track from their album, Peace, available now through Solid State Records. The clip was directed by Andy Maier and can be viewed above.

For nearly two decades, Demon Hunter has weathered the changing tides of rock subculture, proving ever resistant to trends, and ever resilient, making music as determined and resolute as the men within the band.

In 2019 the band unveils not one but two brand new full-length albums on the same day...
