After their successful and critically acclaimed US tour in 2014 with KISS & Def Leppard, THE DEAD DAISIES are thrilled to announce their return to Europe supporting KISS on their 40th Anniversary Tour.
The European KISS tour will coincide perfectly with the release of The Daisies much anticipated second album, which will be released globally on 1st June 2015 via INgrooves.
Joining the musical collective on stage and in the studio will be singer John Corabi (Mötley Crüe /RATT), and beating the skins for this tour will be first time member and current Black Sabbath & Ozzy Osbourne drummer Tommy Clufetos.
Recording for the band’s much anticipated second album titled Revolución has already begun in Sydney, Australia at Studio 301, with tracks being produced by The Dead Daisies and Craig Porteils (Guns N’ Roses/Billy Idol). Additional recording took place in Cuba at Abdala recording studios, Havana, produced by The Dead Daisies and Ben Grosse(Marilyn Manson/Sevendust).
The album title Revolución was influenced by the bands recent trip to Cuba. The new album will feature bassist Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy/Whitesnake), keyboard player Dizzy Reed (Guns N’ Roses), guitarist David Lowy (MINK, Red Phoenix), lead guitarist Richard Fortus (Guns N’ Roses/The Psychedelic Furs), John Corabi (Mötley Crüe /RATT), and drummer Jackie Barnes (Tin Lids/Jimmy Barnes), who is the son of Scottish born Australian singer Jimmy Barnes.
“Well, another chapter with ‘The Dead Daisies’ coming up!!!

About John Corabi:
John Corabi was already an established front man in the rock world following stints with bands such as Andorra and Scream before joining Mötley Crüe in 1992. He co-wrote and recorded their critically acclaimed self-titled album before Vince Neil returned in 1996, following which he joined RATT as a guitarist and also played with both ex-KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick’s band Union and current KISS drummer Eric Singer’s solo project ESP. Corabi was asked to join the revolving collective after recently playing with the band in Cuba as a guest performer for their historic Cuba Rocks for Peace concert in February.
