The Dead Daisies to play at the Limelight in July
Austrailian-American rock band and musical collective, The Dead Daises have announced a show at The Limelight 1, Belfast on Thursday 21st July 2016.
Influenced by 70’s and early 80’s hard rock, The Dead Daisies sound is soulful and accessible – equal parts of The Faces, Bad Company and Foreigner: muscular vocals, bluesy riffs, big choruses, powerful melodies and strong hooks. With stellar musicianship and pulverizing live shows, fans across the globe are discovering the band that is bringing back Rock & Roll!
Since exploding onto the scene in early 2013, The Dead Daisies have taken the Classic Rock world by storm, releasing two albums to date & touring with the biggest names in rock including: ZZ Top, Aerosmith, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bad Company, Judas Priest, KISS, Whitesnake and Def Leppard. 2015 was a banner year that saw the band playing to over 300,000 people around the world in support of their second album “Revolución“, make a historic visit to Cuba, join the line-up for some of the biggest European Rock Festivals including Download & Graspop, tour around the globe with Whitesnake and KISS as well as play a sold out triumphant headline show in Paris. The band then returned to the UK for the first time in two years to play a series of headline Sold Out club shows, including the special guest slot at Planet Rock Stock in Wales.
The Dead Daisies feature in their ranks some of the finest Rockers on the planet. The band has just recently announced the addition of Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio) as their new lead guitar player. He completes a powerhouse lineup that features John Corabi (Mötley Crüe, The Scream), Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake), Brian Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne, Foreigner) and David Lowy (Red Phoenix, Mink).
The current incarnation of The Dead Daisies is part of musical collective created by a rotating line-up that have individually and collectively left their mark on the high-class brand of Rock & Roll the band is known for. This includes names such as Richard Fortus (Guns N’ Roses/The Psychedelic Furs), Dizzy Reed (Guns N’ Roses/Hookers and Blow), Darryl Jones (The Rolling Stones, Sting), Charley Drayton (The X-pensive Winos/The Cult), Jon Stevens (Noiseworks/INXS), Tommy Clufetos (Black Sabbath, Rob Zombie) and many more.
The band recently signed an exclusive, global distribution deal with SPV Records and have begun recording their new studio album with mega-producer Marti Frederiksen (Aerosmith, Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Buckcherry) in Nashville.
With the year having just started, The Dead Daisies are well underway to continue to rewrite the book on Classic Rock. With a killer new album in the works, massive touring being booked and fueled by their ever-growing fan base, the band is showing no signs of letting up.
