Things went pretty well for all-star hard rock collective The Dead Daisies last year. In addition to dropping a blistering EP (“Face I Love”), the five-piece landed a plum supporting gig for legendary rockers Kiss and Def Leppard. That tour included an August 2014 stop at First Niagara Pavilion in Burgettstown.
The band — which features guys who have played in Guns N’ Roses, Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy, Psychedelic Furs, Motley Crue and RATT— are back at with hard-driving new full-length “Revolucion.” They’ll also be part of Whitesnake’s Purple summer tour.
“We destroyed Europe (on their recent overseas tour with Kiss),” singer John Corabi says. “It’s awesome. We are bringing the ‘Revolucion’ back to the United States, our home country, and we can’t wait to tour with Whitesnake.”
The riff-tastic album launches with lead single “Mexico” and The Dead Daisies are in full bloom on standout cuts “Looking for the One,” “Empty Heart,” “Get Up, Get Ready,” power ballad “Sleep,” “Devil Out of Time” and “Leave the Truth Behind.” This album proves there’s still a place out there for a balls-to-the-wall classic rock record.
