The Dead Daisies at Trees
The Dead Daisies
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
Influenced by 70's and early 80's Rock, The Dead Daisies sound is soulful and accessible — equal parts of Aerosmith, Bad Company and Foreigner: muscular vocals, bluesy riffs, pulverizing live shows, fans worldwide are discovering the band that is bringing back Rock!
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).
Since exploding onto the scene in 2013, The Dead Daisies have taken the music world by storm, releasing three studio albums and a live album to date and touring with some of the biggest names in Rock including ZZ Top, Aerosmith, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bad Company, and Judas Priest, KISS, Whitesnake, Def Leppard and the Hollywood Vampires as well as headlining shows around the world playing at prestigious rock festivals such as Download UK, Hellfest France, Graspop Belgium, Sweden Rock and the Wacken & Bang Your Head Festivals in Germany.
As The Dead Daisies love a challenge, they were the first American Rock Band back into Cuba after the embargo was lifted, toured with South Korea with the USO and played a momentous, massive Concert for Peace in Poland with a 60-piece-Orchestra.
In an era where Rock ha been proclaimed dead time and time again, the Daisies defy the critics with ease. Their previous studio-album, 2016's 'Make Some Noise' with twelve songs packed full of exciting Rock hooks and riffs, smashed straight into 23 charts globally.
the title track «Make Some Noise» was also featured in 2017 campaigns with the New Your Yankees, Arizona Cardinals and NASCAR.
The real Rock magic happens on-stage, with the band and audience feeding off each other's energy, which is where The Dead Daisies really excel. By capturing their show in all its loud and powerful glory, the band created 'Live & Louder' — their first ever live record, which received nothing but the highest praise from music press and fans alike following its worldwide release on May 19th, 2017.
At the end of 2017, the band headed to Nashville to record their 4th studio album with Marti Frederiksen at the helm. With the masses hungering for new material, 'Rise Up', the first single off the upcoming album, has been unleashed on March 9th. Sporting Arenas across Europe have been playing the song with the fans «rising up» to support their favorite teams!
«Rise Up» has exploded on the airwaves with the song being added to some of the biggest and most prestigious rock playlists around the world. The band landed a real coup when both «Rise Up» and the album teaser track «Resurrected» landed on the Planet Rock UK A-List simultaneously!
In late March the band rehearsed the new material at the renowned SIR studios in New York city before releasing their highly anticipated, brand new album entitled 'Burt It Down' on April 6th on Spitfire Music/SPV.
Right after, The Dead Daisies have embarked on yet another massive World Tour kicking off with shows in Sold-Out venues all over the UK, then seeing the band play packed houses in Europe in April & May before making their long-awaited return to Japan in June.
Following up, July holds a run of gigantic festival shows featuring appearances at the renowned Rock Fest Barcelona, Rock & Blues Customer Show UK, the Steelhouse Festival in Wales and dates with The Scorpions & Guns N' Roses.
Not backing down in the least, the unstoppable Rock juggernaut that is The Dead Daisies will then hit the US & South America in August, September, & October, before seising the epic KISS Kruise VIII on Halloween. Novermber then sees these Rock mavens return to dry land for Hard Rock Hell, Monsterfest, WinterStorm Rock Festival and Planet Rockstock in the UK.
Despite this massive schedule, more 2018 dates are yet to come!
The Dead Daisies are extremely excited to have Crystal Head Vodka come on board as a brand partner for the 'Burn It Down' tour. Crystal Head Vodka is a multi-award winning, ultra-premium vodka created by Dan Aykroyd and John Alexander. This additive free, pure spirit is housed in the iconic skull-shaped bottle.
