The Dead Daisies - street scene
(September 18, 2014) � Contemporary classic rockerss, The Dead Daisies, are set to hit the road again and do a number of huge shows across Australia and New Zealand in November and December, along with releasing a second single, "Angel In Your Eyes", from their Face I Love EP.  
The Dead Daisies will headline shows in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, and Sydney, as well as a much-anticipated performance in Perth for all their West Aussie fans, playing one show in each city.  The band is also excited to announce that they will be playing some dates with the legendary Jimmy Barnes as special guests on the NZ leg of his upcoming tour.  

After a mind-blowing couple of months touring across the USA and performing to massive crowds in excess of half a million people over the summer, with KISS and Def Leppard in August, and Bad Company and Lynyrd Skynyrd during July, The Dead Daisies are looking forward to getting over to New Zealand with Jimmy Barnes, in late November, before heading home back across the Tasman to play 5 shows in Australia, adding to what has already been an extraordinary year for the band.

"I’m super excited to head back to Australia and to visit some new places!  Playing shows with Jimmy Barnes is always fun and it’s always really inspirational. I enjoy touring with those guys...it’s a real family vibe.  Can’t wait to be back in Australia and play some new songs for our fans there!" - Richard Fortus

Set for release in late October is "Angel In Your Eyes", the second single from their latest EP, Face I Love.  "Angel In Your Eyes" is an epic, guitar-fuelled song, accompanied by Stevens powerful vocals, with drums and keys also hitting the mark.

"When the drums kick in you can’t help but start nodding your head to the beat, just before the heavy hi hat rolls in, making the song feel much louder as the vocals ride over the top. The vocals are superb on this EP and Jon Stevens has a naturally soulful voice with a broad range.  Again the keyboards are instrumental in this song providing that subtle melody which is becoming a trade mark of this band." - Rock'n'Load review of "Angel In Your Eyes", Sep 15

With rave reviews pouring in, The Dead Daisies are impressing even the staunchest of classic rock fans with their lives shows, as they wrap up their support tour with Bad Company & Lynyrd Skynyrd, before heading off to join the juggernaut summer tour that is Def Leppard & Kiss as it moves across the States, during August.
 
"The Dead Daisies played second on the bill, and did a fine job, assuredly, of gaining new fans with a flawless half-hour set." - Buffalo News
 
The Dead Daisies are straight up rock brewed from a mixture of classic depth and 80s showmanship - all the cool but none of the spandex..   If it looks like rock, sounds like rock, and hits you in the face like rock - it might be The Dead Daisies, a brand new crew oof seasoned musicians that know their way around a big stage” and These guys are entertaining to watch, the vocals are gritty and powerful, they play like their lives depend on it, and they have the experience to back it up.- Maine Music News
  
The Dead Daisies do, indeed, have the experience to back it up, and the US is loving it - as they should.  Withh veteran of Australian rock,  Jon Stevens on vocals, with more than 30 years of belting out tunes, and the likes of Richard Fortus (Guns N’ Roses/Psychedelic Furs) on lead guitar, Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy/Whitesnake) on bass, David Lowy (Mink/Red Phoenix) on guitar, Dizzy Reed (Guns N’ Roses/Hookers & Blow) on keys, and Brian Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne/Billy Idol) on drums, it’s hard to find a more musically established group of guys when it comes to ROCK.  They know what it is and how to play it, with heavy influences from the late 70s & early 80s shining through. 
 
The Dead Daisies are showing the world that a “classic rock” sound still has what it takes to get people hooked and can stand up to any newer genre it goes up against.  It’s about musicianship, not auto tune and computers.  It’s about rock.  Full stop.

But the excitement doesn’t end there.  Before they join Def Leppard & Kiss on tour, they’re taking some time out to record some new tunes with renowned producer, Ben Grosse (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stone Temple Pilots, Marilyn Manson, Filter, KD Lang), in Los Angeles.  Then August 1st sees the much-anticipated release of The Dead Daisies brand spanking new EP, Face I Love.  
 
The title track from the EP, Face I Love, was launched in late June in conjunction with an innovative App, where fans have been uploading photos of faces they love, which will become part of the artwork for the EP cover and touring posters.  Selected fans faces will also be chosen to appear in the music video.  And not only that, but one lucky person will go on to win the experience of a lifetime - a trip to see the band at one of ttheir upcoming concerts.
