Today The Dead Daisies have announced this years European Summer dates, in what will be a two month run covering eighteen different countries. Its a combination of arena and amphitheatre shows (appearing with both Judas Priest and Foreigner). The Dead Daisies will also perform at  festivals such as Graspop and Hellfest .

The tour kicks off in a small, sweaty club in Essen, Germany, at the end of May.

The Daisies have rung in their next chapter welcoming new member Glenn Hughes to the band. Glenn has taken over lead vocals and bass guitar, joining guitarists Doug Aldrich and David Lowy and drummer Deen Castronovo.

Glenn told MetalTalk:

“I love performing live, the moment is NOW. I’m really looking forward to going out on tour with the Daisies and playing as many stages across the planet as possible. Writing and recording the new album was euphoric and I can’t wait for you all to hear this Epic. Peace and Love see you soon.”

The upcoming, new album, is slated for a late-May release to coincide with the tour and was recorded by producer Ben Grosse at La Fabrique Studio in the South of France.
