The Dead Daisies

Opening for Bret Michael on August 9th @ Pappy Hoel Campgrounds

“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, big choruses, powerful melodies and strong hooks. With stellar musicianship and pulverizing live shows, fans worldwide are discovering the band that is bringing back Rock & Roll!

The  current  incarnation  of  The  Dead  Daisies  is  taken  from  a  musical  collective  created  originally by a rotating line-­‐up that has left their mark on the high-­‐class brand of Rock & Roll the band is known for. The group features in their ranks some of the finest Rockers on the planet,  among  them  one  of  the  premier  lead  guitarists  of  this  day  and  age,  Doug  Aldrich  (Whitesnake, Dio). He completes a powerhouse lineup consisting of charismatic singer John Corabi  (Mötley  Crüe,  The  Scream),  bassist  extraordinaire  Marco  Mendoza  (Thin  Lizzy,  Whitesnake), the drumming powerhouse of Brian Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne, Foreigner) and bringing  the  thunder  from  down  under,  Australian  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.

Since  exploding  onto  the  scene  in  2012,  The  Dead  Daisies  have  taken  the  music  world  by  storm, releasing three albums to date and touring with 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 when Rock music has been proclaimed dead time and time again, the Daisies defy the  critics  with  ease.  This  is  more  than  evident  on  their  last  studio  album,  2016’s  ‘Make  Some Noise’ with twelve songs packed full of exciting Rock & Roll hooks and riffs.

It’s loud, energetic & uplifting – and most importantly: it’s real. The songs were written and recorded  with  mega-­‐producer  Marti  Frederiksen  (Aerosmith,  Def  Leppard,  Mötley  Crüe),  receiving huge praise from the music press, and smashing straight into 23 charts globally.

The  ‘Make  Some  Noise’  World  Tour  2016  kicked  off  in  Germany  with  The  Hollywood  Vampires then onto some of the biggest festivals in Europe among them the colossal Wacken  Open  Air  in  Germany  and  Woodstock  Poland  where  they  played  to  over  250.000  people. Sold-­‐out Summer Club Shows, a US trek with KISS on their “Freedom to Rock Tour”, US headline gigs in LA at the Whisky-­‐A-­‐Go-­‐Go and Webster Hall in New York City followed. The band then headed to the Far East for the first time, where they wowed the crowds at Loud Park Festival in Japan which led right into their first USO Tour, playing shows for the US Military in South Korea. It was then onto KISS Kruize VI followed by a hugely successful sold-­‐out tour of Europe finishing 2016 on a high.

The real Rock & Roll magic happens on stage, with the band and audience feeding off each other’s  energy.  And  this  is  where  The  Dead  Daisies  really  excel.  Capturing  that  adrenalin  soaked power and committing it to tape was a great way to showcase the bands live potency. A live album entitled ‘Live & Louder’ is the result that presents The Dead Daisies in all their loud, raucous and powerful glory. ‘Live & Louder’ will be released worldwide on May 19th.

There is a whole planet to be conquered, and 2017 will be another landmark year for the band  as  they  plot  a  world  tour  that  will  see  them  play  to  an  ever-­‐increasing  audience  including the continent of South America for the first time with shows in Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Mexico City. The Dead Daisies will once again play some of the biggest festivals in Europe  including  Download,  Hellfest,  Graspop,  Sweden  Rock,  Woodstock  Poland  and  Rock  Hard Festival as well as a month-­‐long headlining Summer tour throughout Europe. Enthusiastic Japanese fans have clamored for the band to return to the Land of the Rising Sun as soon as July for two headline performances. Their first US-­‐headline run, aptly titled ‘The Dirty Dozen’, kicks off in August, which will see the band storm through 12 major cities across North America including New York, Chicago, Toronto, Los Angeles finishing up in Las Vegas...

One thing is for sure, The Dead Daisies are going to be “Live & Louder“ in 2017!

Rock ‘n’ Roll is alive and well!!!
