“The powerful musical collective is created by a rotating line-up that features some of the best Rock musicians on the planet with a sound that’s influenced by late ‘70s and early ‘80s hard rock, in that soulful Bad Company meets Foreigner via The Faces kind of vibe – big choruses, powerful melodies and strong hooks. To help capture their sound best, the band turned to American engineer/producer and multi-instrumentalist John Fields. The Dead Daisies debut album was recorded at Wishbone Studios in Los Angeles.
In early 2013 The Dead Daisies were invited to open for ZZ Top in Australia. Word about their dynamic live show spread quickly and the band soon joined legendary American rockers Aerosmith on their first Australasian tour in 23 years. In August and September The Dead Daisies were part of the massive 25-date Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival through the US and Canada a long side Alice In Chains, & Jane’s Addiction among others.
