The Dead Daisies – the superstar collective featuring past and current members of the likes of Guns N Roses, Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy and Mötley Crüe – are to release their second album, ‘Revolución’, via INgrooves on June 1.
The band have also confirmed that they will be returning to Europe this summer, as special guests on Kiss’ 40th anniversary tour. For both the album and the tour, the Daisies have been joined by former Mötley Crüe /Ratt singer John Corabi, while the tour will also feature current Black Sabbath and Ozzy Osbourne drummer Tommy Clufetos.
The new album features Corabi, bassist Marco Mendoza (ex-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) and drummer Jackie Barnes (Tin Lids/Jimmy Barnes).
Mendoza said: “Well, another chapter with ‘The Dead Daisies’ coming up!!! After finishing what is sounding great in the studio by mid-April, and releasing it in early June, we are all excited by the prospect of sharing the same stage again with the mighty KISS, this time in Europe. We also can’t wait to share our show and new music with our European fans. Europe – get ready for some good ol’ Rock & Roll In your Face. WE ARE COMIN’ TO GETCHA!!!! SEE YA”LL THERE….ARE YOU READY?
Corabi added: “The Dead Daisies have been an absolute BLAST for me so far. The guys are all GREAT Musicians, and also just incredibly easy to work and write with!!! I had so much fun in Cuba, and now here I am writing in Sydney for the upcoming record. Can’t wait to see what the future brings for us all!!!
Dizzy Reed commented: “John Corabi loves deep sea shark fishing, passionate about it. He’s also a whiz with a motorcycle helmet and baseball bat. We are making a new record together. It’s gonna rock!”
