The Dead Daisies released its new album, ‘Revolución’ in the U.S. on Friday, July 31. ‘Revolución’ features bassist Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake), keyboard player Dizzy Reed (Guns N Roses), guitarist David Lowy (MINK, Red Phoenix), lead guitarist Richard Fortus (Guns N Roses, The Psychedelic Furs), John Corabi (Mötley Crüe, RATT) on vocals, Brian Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne, Billy Idol) on drums and additional drumming from Jackie Barnes, son of Scottish born Australian singer Jimmy Barnes. Also included on the album is Cuban musician Yaimi Karell Lay on percussion.
Back in February 2015, the Daisies got the chance to play some Rock n Roll in Cuba and it proved a revelation as the boys started conceiving their next album. The passion theyd experienced in Cuba was confirmation the world needs to be reminded that classic rock is alive and kicking and with the new album, The Dead Daisies were going to deliver just that, an album of classic rock Revolución! They even found time to record tracks for ‘Revolución’ at Abdala recording studios with producer Ben Grosse (Marilyn Manson, Sevendust), who accompanied them on the journey.
The entire Cuban adventure has also been made into a documentary film and photo book, both of which was unleashed on August 1. Also titled ‘Revolución,’ both were shot by photographer Katarina Benzova and Cuban videographer Karel Renzoly Green, while the documentary was edited by filmmaker Kenn Michael and produced by music and film producer Danny Saber.
