The track "Face I love" will also be made simultaneously available to download on June 23rd 2014, but will also be made the instant grat track when pre-ordering the full maxi single, to be released in the UK on September 8th 2014).

The Dead Daisies were formed by singer-songwriter Jon Stevens and guitarist David Lowy in 2012. They have assembled a powerful musical collective created by a rotating line-up that features some of the best Rock musicians on the planet with a sound that's influenced by late '70s and early '80s hard rock - big choruses, powerful melodies and strong hooks.

The 2014 lineup includes Jon Stevens (Noiseworks/INXS) on vocals, David Lowy (Mink/Red Phoenix) on guitar, Richard Fortus (Guns N' Roses/Psychedelic Furs) on lead guitar, Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy/Whitesnake) on bass, Dizzy Reed (Guns N' Roses/Hookers & Blow) on keys and are pleased to announce the new addition of Brian Tichy (Whitesnake/Foreigner/Billy Idol) on drums.

"This is the first group of songs that Diz, Marco and I have recorded with the Daisies," declares Fortus. "I haven't been this excited about a recording in a long, long time and think they really capture what the band has developed in to over the last year of touring. It's new music for classic rock fans!"

Despite being a band that consists of seasoned rock veterans, The Dead Daisies celebrate technology and are heavily integrated into social media. On Monday, June 23rd, 2014 The Dead Daisies will launch the "Face I Love" App on their Facebook page. Created to represent the iconic daisy skull logo of the band, Facebook users will be able to upload an image of the face they love to the App to create a photo-mosaic portrait of The Dead Daisies skull - and make it bloom.

"Face I Love is dedicated to all MUSIC FANS around the world especially THE DEAD DAISIES FANS because, without you, we don't get to do what we do," attests Stevens. "It's like having a massive extended family seeing your smiling faces at our shows and for us that makes it all worthwhile."

When the project comes to a close on July 27, the photo-mosaic portrait of The Dead Daisies' floral skull, made up of thousands of images of fans of the band, will be used as the artwork for EP, music video, single and other promotional items. The promotion is a true collaboration between the band and their fans, bringing real meaning to the title of the song, "Face I Love".

Marco Mendoza affirms, "'Face I Love,' was written for our fans and all the faces we see out in the audience when we play. I believe it was one of the first songs that we all collaborated on in the studio for the first time and BAM !! Magic !!"

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 Australian tour in 23 years. In August and September, The Dead Daisies were part of the massive 25-date Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival through the US and Canada a long side Alice In Chains, & Jane's Addiction among others.

The Dead Daisies' self-titled debut album was released in the UK and Eire in August 2013 to exceptional reviews. Their first single "Lock 'N' Load", a track co-written by and featuring legendary guitarist Slash received airplay on radio networks across the UK - included A listing on Planet Rock, Kerrang radio and Team Rock radio and plays on the mainstream Radio 2. The band also completely a sold out tour with Black Star Riders and their own sold out debut UK show at The Underworld, London.

This year is set to be a busy year ahead for The Dead Daisies with more dates around the world and the global release of a brand new EP and single in July.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
