THE DEAD DAISIES Release New Single ‘Dead and Gone’

THE DEAD DAISIES – “DEAD AND GONE” – OR ARE THEY??

 

“Burn It Down is a five-alarm fire, a strong contender for Album of the Year.”

– Brave Words Magazine

 

THE DEAD DAISIES are releasing a new single and music video this Friday, June 22nd for “DEAD AND GONE”, one of the crowd favourites off their latest, chart-topping album “BURN IT DOWN”.

The video combines classic performance elements intertwined with appearances from the Undead, which were created, filmed and edited by legendary horror visionary Tony Valenzuela (Black Box TV, Villisca).

During the last run of shows in Europe and when in Berlin, the band filmed the performance sequences at Black Box Music (Rammstein, 30 Seconds To Mars, Linkin Park, Marilyn Manson) with the zombie footage being shot, so to speak, in Los Angeles at the mythical Daisyland studios.

This also marks the official kick-off to the band’s new “Daisyland” platform, which invites everyone from around the world to be a part of the band’s journey.  From day one, The Dead Daisies wanted to provide all lovers of rock music with a place to hang out, have a blast and enjoy the vibe without being ripped off for the experience. “Daisyland” is that place!!!

Singer John Corabi about “Dead And Gone”: “Dead And Gone is one of those tracks that must be played LOUD!!! It’s got a great groove, and it’s basically about living life, (responsibly) having fun, and not letting ANYBODY judge you for wanting to have a great time!!!!”

The previous single “RISE UP” is still climbing the US-Active Rock Charts and being used extensively in NASCAR promotional campaigns across the USA.

The band are about to embark on their 2nd Japanese headline tour followed by a stint of European headline shows and festivals with KISS, Joe Satriani, The Scorpions and Guns n Roses.

August sees the band return to North America for a month long run with long-time mate and current GnR keyboard player Dizzy Reed and his Hookers & Blow.

The album “BURN IT DOWN” has entered the charts around the world! Led by a #6 in the US Billboard Heatseekers Chart, a #10 in the prestigious German Media Control Charts, #12 in the US Hard Music Charts, #14 in the UK Sales Charts, #15 in both Switzerland and Austria as well as numerous other chart entries around the world, the album very much delivered on the promise of “Burning down everything in its path”!

At radio, the single “Rise Up” has been added to massive playlists worldwide. The track is climbing the US-airplay charts (currently #35 at Active Rock), is on huge stations in Germany, Italy, France, Sweden and Spain as well as UK’s Planet Rock Radio adding both the single and the teaser track “Resurrected” to their A-Playlist.

The Dead Daisies are: Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio), John Corabi (Mötley Crüe, The Scream), Marco Mendoza (Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy), Deen Castronovo (Bad English, Journey) and David Lowy (Red Phoenix, Mink).

Rock is indeed alive and well!!!

 

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
