After the enormous success of their first single “Lock ‘N’ Load” feat. Slash which saw the band reach #1 status on Planet Rock Radio in the UK, their second single “Washington” which saw airplay on over 15 US rock radio stations and Triple M in Australia, The Dead Daisies are now set to release their third single “It’s Gonna Take Time” on the 21st of January 2014.
About the song: “It’s a personal view on the world we live in today. We’re all running around on this planet consuming everything in our path. There are so many distractions, that the simple things in life, we don’t seem to have time for anymore? Is it just me? Everyone seems to be in a rush nowadays. This song is about stopping for a minute and identifying what is really important in your life! Simple really, but hard to do in this day and age! I hope whoever hears this song, will leave all their other distractions at the door, turn up the volume and Rock Out!” – Jon Stevens
The Dead Daisies new single “It’s Gonna Take Time” is an unrestrained and imposing track that showcases Stevens’ faltering wail against relentless and crunching guitar riffs. With a thumping cadence that contributes to the rhythm as much as the melody, “It’s Gonna Take Time” features a raw and unforgettable sound seemingly plucked directly from the Golden Era of 1970’s classic rock.
