The Dead Daisies Announce USA Support to KISS and Def Leppard

Posted by on Jun 20, 2014 in News, Record Releases, Tours | 0 comments

London (June 16, 2014) – 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 September 8 through Spitfire Music/PIAS and are elated to announce a month-long US tour with KISS Def Leppard in August.

The band will release their very own “Face I Love” App on their Facebook page on the 23rd June. Created to represent the iconic daisy skull logo of the band and allow fans to be part of the EP cover art and music video, Facebook users are 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 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 Daises 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!”

The ‘Face I Love’ EP is now 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

The brand new album “Black Eyed Sons” kicks off 30th anniversary celebrations. Top value package will include live CD and live DVD and will be released on Monday 16th June, via Off Yer Rocka Recordings.


Following three sold out intimate shows to mark the start of their 30th anniversary, The Quireboys will embark on a 5 month world tour which will commence with a long awaited return to The US & Canada early August.


They will be back mid November for the UK leg, which goes on sale this weekend. Expect new material from the forthcoming Black Eyed Sons, triple pack, rarities plus all the classics.


Special guests for the UK will be Hispanic Blues Rock legends, Vargas Blues Band, who have recently signed to The Quireboys label, Off Yer Rocka Recordings.


The year is 1984. The miners’ strike is in full swing. Apple sells its first Macintosh home computer and Whitesnake release Slide It In. Prince Harry is born…


…and the band that would become the Quireboys makes its infamous debut at a heaving pub in Putney.


Thirty years down the line and it’s time to celebrate a golden age of music with the ultimate party band. In 2014 the Quireboys continue to fuse retro-fuelled hooks with rock n roll evolution: new album “Black Eyed Sons” is the perfect soundtrack to your summer.


Following hot on the heels of last year’s critically acclaimed Beautiful Curse – the band’s biggest-selling record since their early 90s heyday – “Black Eyed Sons” was produced by the legendary Chris Tsangarides and represents yet another career high for a band bang in form.


Spike (vocals), Guy Griffin (guitars), Paul Guerin (guitars) and Keith Weir (keys) have spent more than a decade rebuilding and revitalising one of British rock n roll’s best-loved brands. “Black Eyed Sons” is the triumphant result.


Packaged alongside a CD of The Quireboys’ main stage acoustic set at 2013’s Sweden Rock festival – in front of 40,000 fans – and a live 7 CAM shot DVD featuring the London leg of last year’s Beautiful Curse tour, this is a must-have for long-time fans and new converts alike.


“I’ve always felt like I’m 30-years-old,” jokes Spike. “So this is our time. And I’d just like to raise a toast to the next 30 years.”



UK dates:

 15th November: The Tivoli, Buckley

16th November: Academy3, Manchester

20th November: The Garage, Glasgow

21st November: The Limelight, Belfast

23rd November: The Riverside, Newcastle

26th November: O2 Academy, Islington, London

28th November: Rescue Rooms, Nottingham

29th November: The Corporation, Sheffield
