Hot off the back of their historic tour to Cuba and the critically acclaimed US tour in 2014 with KISS & Def Leppard, The Dead Daisies are thrilled to announce their return to Europe touring with KISS on their 40th Anniversary Tour in 2015.
The European KISS dates will coincide perfectly with the release of The Daisies much anticipated second album, which will be released globally in June 2015.
The album title Revolución was influenced by the bands recent trip to Cuba. They are currently recording in Sydney, Australia at Studio 301, with tracks being produced by The Dead Daisies and Craig Porteils (Guns N’ Roses/Billy Idol). Additional recordings took place in Cuba at Abdala recording studios, Havana, produced by The Dead Daisies and Ben Grosse (Marilyn Manson/Sevendust). The new album will feature bassist Marco Mendoza (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), John Corabi (Mötley Crüe /RATT), and drummer Jackie Barnes (Tin Lids/Jimmy Barnes), who is the son of Scottish born Australian singer Jimmy Barnes.
“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?” – Marco Mendoza.
