includes: Richard Fortus (Guns N Roses/The Psychedelic Furs), Dizzy Reed (Guns N Roses/Hookers and Blow), Darryl
Jones (The Rolling Stones), Charley Drayton (The X-pensive Winos/The Cult), Jon Stevens (Noiseworks/INXS), Brian Tichy (Ozzy

In early 2013 The Dead Daisies were invited to open for ZZ Top in Australia. Word about their dynamic live show spread quickly
and the band soon joined legendary American rockers Aerosmith on their first Australasian tour in 23 years. In August & September
the band were introduced to the US market headlining one of the side stages as part of the massive 25-date Rockstar Energy
Drink UPROAR Festival which toured throughout the US & Canada alongside Alice In Chains & Janes Addiction amongst others.
The Daisies then headed to the UK and played 18 dates throughout the country with Black Star Riders kicking it off with their
first ever UK headlining show at The Underworld in Camden to rave reviews.
The bands first single Lock N Load featuring Slash, off of their self-titled debut album was
an international hit and stormed the US & UK radio airwaves hitting Number 1 on Planet Rock Radio with Classic Rock Magazine
listing it as one of the top 20 songs of the year. The bands second single Washington went to #18 on the Rock
radio chart (MediaBase) in the US and received airplay on Triple M in Australia.
The Dead Daisies closed out 2013 playing two shows in Israel, with a SOLD OUT epic headline show at The Barby in Tel Aviv
leaving the crowd begging for more.
Kicking off 2014, February saw the band return to Australia playing a number of dates in support of their debut album and
growing their hometown crowd. In July the band headed to the USA where they played 9 shows across the country as Special Guest
to Lynyrd Skynyrd & Bad Company. The month of August saw The Daisies playing across the US with Def Leppard & KISS where they
impressed even the die-hard KISS fans.
On August 5th, 2014 The Dead Daisies released their brand new EP and single called Face I Love. An innovative
Facebook app was launched along with the single giving fans the opportunity to participate by having their faces appear on
the EP cover, in the promotional video & posters with the single going top 25 on the Rock radio chart (MediaBase) in the US.
In October the band released their next single Angel In Your Eyes before heading for their first live performances
on the high seas, joining KISS on the KISS Kruise IV around the Bahamas. November & December then saw The Dead Daises in Australia
headlining shows in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, and Sydney, as well as a much-anticipated performance in Perth. The band
also played dates with the legendary Jimmy Barnes on the New Zealand leg of his tour.
As with every other year for The Dead Daisies, 2015 is no different. After months of planning, the band kicked off the year
with an historic visit to Cuba. Within months of trade restrictions being relaxed by the Obama administration, the band made
a landmark visit to the Caribbean island country where they played two Sold Out shows, visited music schools and played with
local Cuban musicians. The line-up featured long standing collective members Richard Fortus, Dizzy Reed, Darryl Jones, David
Lowy, and Marco Mendoza. They were also joined by singers John Corabi (Motley Crue/RATT) and Bernard Fowler (The Rolling Stones)
for the first time. The trip was historic, monumental and left a lasting impression with the Cuban people and the band with
the world media covering the trip extensively.
The guys have just completed recording their second album in Australia, which will feature Marco Mendoza, Dizzy Reed, David
Lowy, Richard Fortus, John Corabi & Jackie Barnes, son of legendary Australian front man Jimmy Barnes on drums. The much-anticipated
album will be released in Europe June 2015, and in the US and Australia in September 2015.
