Hard Rock revivalists The Dead Daisies have announced details of their new album 'Make Some Noise'. Due for release via SPV on 5th August 2016, the band will preface it with a series of U.K. shows that includes a stop off at the Ramblin' Man Fair festival in Kent.
Featuring a host of names from some of the most recognisable band names in rock, The Dead Daises count among their number former Mötley Crüe vocalist John Corabi, travelled bass man Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake), and drummer Brian Tichy who has put in stints with both Ozzy Osbourne and Foreigner. The band recently announced the addition of former Whitesnake and Dio six stringer Doug Aldrich to the fold, as their new lead guitar player.
Speaking about the pending shows, John Corabi enthuses; “Europe is always a blast! We love the festivals, and we’re very much looking forward to playing another run of shows in the U.K. as well as our own dates in Germany. We’ll bring new songs, a new monster player on guitar - so let‘s do this!”
Adds Doug Aldrich; “I can‘t wait to finally get going with The Dead Daisies and bring our new record to the people. This will be fun, loud Rock‘n‘Roll. Promise!”
The band put the finishing touches to their new studio album in March. Produced by mega-producer Marti Frederiksen who has previously worked with the likes of Aerosmith, Def Leppard, Mötley Crüe and Buckcherry, 'Make Some Noise' is their third studio effort, preceded by 2013's self-titled debut and 2015's ‘Revolución’.
Speaking exclusively to eonmusic via gigsandfestivals at Download Festival 2015, Corabi - who had just signed on in time for ‘Revolución’s recording - enthused about joining The Dead Daisies. Said the singer; "it’s been crazy. I literally got a call, I went to L.A to meet them, and like two weeks later I was in Cuba. Three weeks after that I was in Australia writing and recording the record, and then a month after that I was in L.A rehearsing with them".
Going on to talk about the bands influences, the singer said: "we all love all that seventies s**t. We all grew up listening to Grand Funk, Deep Purple, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles", adding; "we want to somehow try and leave everything at the door and go back to being those seventeen or eighteen year old kids that were in a garage just dreaming about our heroes".
Speaking about the use of the term 'supergroup', meanwhile, Corabi said that it wasn't something that he associated with the band; "to me, it’s just a bunch of super cool guys", he said, continuing; "super players? Yes, I’ll take any day, but I don’t like the title ‘supergroup’, none of us do - It is what it is".
The Dead Daisies have already established themselves as a must-see live act, having toured with the likes of ZZ Top, Aerosmith, Bad Company, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Def Leppard, as well as their long-time friends in Kiss. The band are due to hook up with Kiss once again following their U.K. commitments, for an extended U.S. tour that starts on 10th August.
