Australian-American rock collective THE DEAD DAISIES recently revealed music from their latest album, Burn It Down, would feature exclusively as the soundtrack for the upcoming horror anthology tv series, “Welcome To Daisyland,” which is scheduled to premiere this Valentine’s Day, February 14th, across numerous platforms.

In conjunction with the premiere of “Welcome To Daisyland,” THE DEAD DAISIES are releasing their new single “Dead And Gone” (Swamp Version) and have launched a music video highlighting performance and behind-the-scenes footage from their recent 2018 world tour. Get a glimpse of life on the road and head over to BLABBERMOUTH.NET for the exclusive premiere here: or stream it below. The track will also feature in Episode 2 of the series.

“We’re very excited to have had The Dead Daisies exclusively record a special acoustic version of their hit song “Dead And Gone,” states Executive Producer David Edwards. “Rock & Horror are a great fit and the bands music sets the tone for the series.”

Directed by award-winning filmmaker Tony E. Valenzuela (Silverwood, Harper’s Globe) and starring Pepi Sonuga (Ash Vs The Evil Dead), “Welcome To Daisyland” debut episode will air on www.welcometodaisyland.com as well as the YouTube horror channel BlackBoxTV. Check out the official synopsis and trailer below!

Set behind the gates of the Daisyland Carnival, a music & mayhem shadow show, the carnival is a small but legendary one that began its run sometime in the early 1970s. No one knows for sure exactly when, only that is has appeared every fall, across the country in a series of vacant lots and overgrown fields, far from the reach of city lights and the law. Once the gates have closed and all the patrons have gone home, the cast of the carnival comes to life. Each member of the troupe has a dark gift and job to fulfill, as Daisyland is a place for the collection of souls. Daisyland is open from dark to dawn. Where dreams come true and nightmares begin.

The Dead Daisies To Unleash ‘Burn It Down’ On April 6th, 2018!

The Dead Daisies To Unleash ‘Burn It Down’ On April 6th, 2018!

2018 is shaping up to a huge year for The Dead Daisies. The band has announced an April 6th, 2018 for their upcoming album, “BURN IT DOWN.” The album is a muscular tour-de-force, a tornado of pounding drums, pulverizing bass, screaming guitars and in-your-face raw vocals. Evoking the best of 70s Rock, with moments of Birmingham’s finest, blended with the early works of Boston’s best, “Burn It Down” will do just that: Burn down everything in its path until there is nothing left standing.

Recorded in Nashville with Marti Frederiksen at the helm, the band finished their 4th studio album “Burn It Down” in December, with Anthony Focx once again handling the mix and mastering legend Howie Weinberg adding his magic.

John Corabi about the new record:
“I’m extremely excited about our new record “BURN IT DOWN”! It was a pleasure to once again work with Marti Frederiksen and the band on what I believe is the next great step in The Dead Daisies journey. This is a balls-out old school rock record!!! Enjoy it, and see you all on our massive 2018 world tour!!!! Peace, Crabby” 

Doug Aldrich puts it quite simply, yet to the point:
“The new Daisies album will melt your face! It is raw and in-your-face with a whole new sound!” 

With the band eager to get on the road and in true Daisies’ fashion, the band announced the first of many BURN IT DOWN TOUR dates slated for 2018 right before Christmas with fans turning out in droves at the on-sale date. Many more dates are to be announced including the band’s highly anticipated return to Japan, North America, Mexico and South America!

The Dead Daisies Announce The The Dirty Dozen Tour 2017

The Dead Daisies Announce The The Dirty Dozen Tour 2017

THE DEAD DAISIES awesome live juggernaut is set to storm into North America in August for a dozen prime live dates as part of their Live & Louder World Tour, in support of the release of their landmark ‘Live And Louder’ album on Spitfire Music/SPV/eOne on May 19th. Heralded “The Dirty Dozen Tour”, the trek is set to kick off in Chicago, IL on August 10th and will wrap in Las Vegas, NV on August 27th.

“The Dirty Dozen Tour” is inspired by the classic 1960s movie of the same name. “Rehearse them, Excite them, Arm them – then turn them loose on the Fans!”
It will be the band’s first North American Headline Tour where demand has been steadily building after 2016’s smash success of their third album “Make Some Noise”.

Lead singer John Corabi – “We’re all very excited for our very first North American headline run. We’re kicking it all off on August 10th in Chicago and ending it in “Sin City” Las Vegas!!! You guys have been amazing with all of your support and requests for shows here, so we’re giving it to you “LIVE AND LOUDER”, and “down and dirty” on “The Dirty Dozen Tour 2017”!!!! See ya on the road kids!!!”

Before being turned loose on North American audiences, the troops will be fresh from playing some of the most prestigious & high profile UK & EU Rock Festivals coupled with a series of headline club shows, dates in Japan to then make their long-awaited debut in South America. From South America it’s back to one of the EU’s largest Festivals “Woodstock Poland”, to be part of a “Concert Inspired by Freedom” which will see the band perform with a 60-piece Orchestra.
The “Live & Louder” – World Tour 2017 will visit the following countries: Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden, United Kingdom, Holland, France, Belgium, Hungary, Czech Republic, Japan, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Poland, Canada and the USA.

”LIVE & LOUDER”, will be available in multiple deluxe formats & perfectly captures the awesome vibe of their supreme, sweat drenched, roof-raising live sets, recorded on a heady high at the end of an unbelievable 2016. The result, once again mixed by Anthony Focx (Aerosmith, Bad Company), is an absolute stunner!

Lead guitarist Doug Aldrich has some choice words about the upcoming live album – “Live & Louder really helps define The Dead Daisies’ sound. Like bands I’ve been involved with co-producing (Whitesnake and Dio), we have a great team that makes sure our sound is consistent and we are always looking to pump it up. Onstage I just play guitar but our crew and production team are very instrumental in capturing what happens on stage. Now get out there and go Live & Louder with us this summer!!”

Special Guests on this run will be THE DIVES which the band made instant friends with on the previous years’ KISS Kruise and who will add their own blend of signature rock and roll to the fiery package.

Rock & Roll is indeed alive and well!!!
