“Rock’n’Roll like this is a rarity these days: dirty, passionate, full of anger
and lust for life, without irony or distance.” – Rolling Stone, Germany
Since exploding onto the scene in 2013, The Dead Daisies have taken the rock music world by storm, releasing four studio and one live album to date whilst touring with some of the biggest names in Rock including: ZZ Top, Aerosmith, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bad Company, Judas Priest, KISS, Whitesnake, Def Leppard and the Hollywood Vampires.
In an era where Rock has been proclaimed dead, time and time again, The Daisies defy the critics with ease. With stellar musicianship and pulverizing live shows, fans worldwide are discovering that rock is still alive and well.
The current incarnation of The Dead Daisies features guitarist Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio), singer John Corabi (Mötley Crüe, The Scream), bassist Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake), drummer Deen Castronovo (Journey, Bad English, Hardline), and rhythm guitarist David Lowy (Red Phoenix, Mink).
Past names have included Richard Fortus (Guns N’ Roses/The Psychedelic Furs), Dizzy Reed (Guns N’ Roses/Hookers and Blow), Darryl Jones (The Rolling Stones, Sting), Bernard Fowler (The Rolling Stones), Charley Drayton (The X-pensive Winos/The Cult), Jon Stevens (Noiseworks/INXS), Tommy Clufetos (Black Sabbath/Rob Zombie) and many more.
Their third studio-album, ‘Make Some Noise’ smashed straight into 23 music charts around the world with the title track ‘Make Some Noise’ being featured in a prominent campaign with the New York Yankees, the Arizona Cardinals and NASCAR. They were the first American Rock Band back into Cuba after the embargo was lifted in 2015, toured South Korea with the USO and played a momentous, massive Concert for Peace at Woodstock Poland with a 60-piece-Orchestra in front of over 300.000 people.
During a series of Sold Out shows across the UK & Europe, the band recorded their first live album, “Live & Louder”, which was released in conjunction with a series of shows the following year with nothing but the highest praise from music press and fans alike.
The end of 2017 saw the band head to Nashville to record their 4th studio album with producer Marti Frederiksen at the helm. ‘Burn It Down’ was released five months later on April 6th after which the band embarked on a massive World Tour kicking it off with Sold Out shows in venues across the UK and playing to packed houses in Europe.
With the first single ‘Rise Up’ climbing charts worldwide and hitting the Top 40 in the US, The Dead Daisies followed up with the release of their new single and video ‘Dead And Gone’ on June 22. The amazing zombie-infested video and single received a massive response (third track off the album making it straight to Planet Rock UK’s highly coveted A-List) and landing on playlists in the US, Japan, South America, UK and Europe. June also saw amazing shows in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya where the band’s Japanese fans commitment and enthusiasm are second to none.
July saw the band play a series of gigantic Festival & Headline shows across Europe and the UK, as well as stadiums with The Scorpions & Guns N’ Roses. DaisyLand was launched where the guys played intimate acoustic shows for the first 50 people at each venue. The fans and band loved it so much, this is something they do around almost every headline show now.
With the USA being home to everyone, The Dead Daisies toured North America in the late summer with Special Guests Dizzy Reed’s (GnR) “Hookers & Blow”. DaisyLand Acoustic Sessions hit Guitar Center stores across the country, top-level Music Stores in Canada and the Bartels Harley-Davidson dealership in Los Angeles, all of which cemented the band’s reputation as a true “people’s band”!
The Daisies then hit the highs seas for the fourth time on the epic KISS Kruise VIII for Halloween and Rocked the ship as always ahead of heading to the UK & Europe.
The Winterland UK/EU 2018 Tour kicked off in the UK slaying crowds at Hard Rock Hell, Monsterfest, WinterStorm & Planet Rockstock Festivals along with a series of Sold Out headline shows in O2 Academy venues. A quick trip across the channel will see the band start the European leg headlining fifteen dates and finishing off what has been an amazing 2018!
2018 will be THE YEAR OF THE DAISIES!
Rock is indeed alive and well!!!
