After their sold-out tour across the UK & Europe, The Dead Daisies announced today they are returning to North America. Joining the guys on the road is their old friend Dizzy Reed along with his band Hookers & Blow. A buzz has begun to build that The Dead Daisies latest album, Burn It Down, a strong contender for ‘Album of the Year.’ The album hit #6 on the US Billboard Heatseekers Chart. The band’s current single “Rise Up” is ascending the US-Active Rock Charts as well as being used extensively in NASCAR promotional campaigns across the United States.
Hookers & Blow is the legendary project by Guns N' Roses keyboardist Dizzy Reed and Quiet Riot guitarist Alex Grossi. They are celebrating their 15th anniversary this year. Along with Reed and Grossi, the summer line up for the band includes Robbie Crane (Black Star Riders) on bass and Mike Dupke (W.A.S.P., John Mellencamp) on drums. Dizzy Reed recently released his very first solo record Rock & Roll Ain’t Easy, which features members of Guns N' Roses, No Doubt, Quiet Riot, W.A.S.P., The Psychedelic Furs, Thin Lizzy.
The Daisies shot their music video for the band’s next single “Dead And Gone” at Black Box Music (Rammstein, 30 Seconds To Mars, Linkin Park, Marilyn Manson) in Berlin. In late June The Dead Daisies, Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio), John Corabi (Mötley Crüe, The Scream), Marco Mendoza (Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy), Deen Castronovo (Bad English, Journey) and David Lowy (Red Phoenix, Mink) will return to Japan to play three packed headline shows in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya before heading to Europe.
