Hard rockers The Dead Daisies, a ‘collective’ project started in 2012 by Australian guitarist (and one of the country’s leading businessmen) David Lowy, comprising some of rock’s finest players, have today released ‘Resurrected’, a track taken from their upcoming fourth album (‘Burn It Down’).
The band has seen many musicians come and go during its five-year existence, but has more recently stabilised its line-up with founder member Lowy, vocalist John Corabi, bassist Marco Mendoza and lead guitarist Doug Aldrich (all of whom played on the last album, 2016’s ‘Make Some Noise’) now being joined by drummer Deen Castronovo. Previous drummer Brian Tichy announced his departure last year, with the former Journey sticksman taking over the drum stool in time to record this upcoming album. The group have already given selected fans a sneak preview of the album but they have decided to make one track generally available as a taster.
If this track is any indication of the album, then the fourth Daisies platter will be their heaviest one to date. The opening riff smashes in with a guitar sound not far removed from Monster Truck, though early fans will note that it is a long way (to go?) from the first incarnation of the band. When I get the full album a write-up will appear on this blog, and I am looking forward to seeing the Daisies at Bilston’s Robin 2 on their Spring UK tour when they will no doubt play several tracks from this album.
For now, here is the Spotify link to the track ‘Resurrected’ – crank it up, reach for the neck brace and pick up that air guitar!
The Dead Daisies release ‘Burn It Down’ on Spitfire Records, on April 6th 2018 and have a UK/European tour booked for April/May, with further shows planned for Japan, South America, the US and Canada throughout the rest of the year.
