The Dead Daisies are a powerful musical collective with a rotating line-up that features some of the best Rock musicians on the planet and a sound that’s influenced by late ‘70s and early ‘80s hard rock – big choruses, powerful melodies and strong hooks. The Daisies release the Face I Love EP on August 5 via Caroline/Universal and are elated to announce a month-long tour with KISS & Def Leppard in August. These follow the seven East Coast dates the band has with Bad Company and Lynyrd Skynyrd starting July 10.
The Dead Daisies were formed by singer-songwriter Jon Stevens and guitarist David Lowy in 2012. The 2014 lineup includes Jon Stevens(Noiseworks/INXS) on vocals, David Lowy (Mink/Red Phoenix) on guitar, Richard Fortus (Guns N’ Roses/Psychedelic Furs) on lead guitar,Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy/Whitesnake) on bass, Dizzy Reed (Guns N’ Roses/Hookers & Blow) on keys and the new addition of Brian Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne/Billy Idol) on drums.
For this tour, KISS and Def Leppard will be honoring their dedicated fans in the armed services by partnering with numerous military organizations. All military personnel will be given exclusive access to discounted tickets for the tour and military charities will receive a portion of ticket sales with the money raised being split amongst all the non-profit organizations participating with the summer tour.
\”I am pretty pumped to hit the road with The Dead Daies and bring some some kick ass, analog rock and roll music to all of you with the legendary KISS and Def Leppard and help make your summer as memorable as possible,\” proclaims Dizzy Reed. \”So fire up the grill, chill the beer and the Jager and get ready to ROCK! See you soon!\”
On Tuesday, June 24, 2014 The Dead Daisies will release the \”Face I Love\” single and launch the “Face I Love” App on their Facebook page, which will allow fans to be a part of the album cover art and music video. Created to represent the iconic daisy skull logo of the band, Facebook users will be able to upload an image of the face they love to the App to create a photo-mosaic portrait of The Dead Daisies skull – and make it bloom. The promotion is a true collaboration between the band and their fans, bringing real meaning to the title of the song, “Face I Love”.
That same day, the EP will be available for pre-order with the title track given away as an instant-grat track to those who pre-order the album. Enjoy an early taste of the track and the band performing live with the video of The Dead Daisies performing \”Face I Love\” Live. View the video HERE and feel free to post.
