There is nothing quite like the news about an exciting Metal and Hard Rock band announcing a tour to wipe away those Monday blues. With that said, here is the skinny on the summer dates that were just announced by The Dead Daisies. Read on down below.
The Press Release:
THE DEAD DAISIES are returning to North America! After a Sold-Out Tour across the UK & Europe, the band are looking forward to rocking out with their US & Canadian fans! Their current single “RISE UP” is climbing the US-Active Rock Charts and being used extensively in NASCAR promotional campaigns across the country. The guys are also happy to announce that an old friend of the Daisies, Dizzy Reed, is bringing his band HOOKERS & BLOW along as the Tour’s Special Guest.
THE DEAD DAISIES are currently on the final leg of their UK & European Burn It Down Tour where they just shot a 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 before finishing in Milan on May 9th.
The album “BURN IT DOWN” has entered the charts around the world! Led by a #6 in the US Billboard Heatseekers Chart, a #10 in the prestigious German Media Control Charts, #12 in the US Hard Music Charts, #14 in the UK Sales Charts, #15 in both Switzerland and Austria as well as numerous other chart entries around the world, the album very much delivered on the promise of “Burning down everything in its path”!
At radio, the single “Rise Up” has been added to massive playlists worldwide. The track is climbing the US-airplay charts (currently #42 at Active Rock), is on huge stations in Germany, Italy, France, Sweden and Spain as well as the UK’s Planet Rock Radio adding both the single and the teaser track “Resurrected” to their A-Playlist.
The band will return to Japan in late June to play three packed headline shows in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya before heading to Europe in July where they’ll play a series of Festivals along with dates with the Scorpions & Guns N’ Roses.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As someone who’s only caught the Dead Daisies once (despite wanting to a number of times before) this is pretty awesome news to see happening. The band kicks some righteous behind and are meant to be enjoyed in the live sense. Sure the records rock as well, but trust me, even after only one gig I was sold. You will be too for sure. What do you think about this news? Chime in down below.
