There is a proven audience for Horror Anthology series based on the continually returning “American Horror Story” which just completed what felt like its 15th Season on FX. This new project holds some interest to me based on it being a new network to my media database and one that will feature music from that kickass Hard Rock band The Dead Daisies. Check out the trailer and press copy that I received not too long ago.
The Press Release:
For those that claim rock music is a fading trend, Spitfire Music has teamed up with BlackBoxTV to develop a new horror anthology series “Welcome To Daisyland”. Spitfire Music have enlisted the Australian-American musical collective THE DEAD DAISIES to provide the soundtrack for the series, furthering their stance that rock music is alive and thriving. “Welcome To Daisyland” is scheduled to premiere this Valentine’s Day (February 14). Directed by award-winning film maker Tony E. Valenzuela (Silverwood, Harper’s Globe) and starring Pepi Sonuga (Ash Vs The Evil Dead), the first official trailer for the series is out now and can be seen here:
“In 2018, content is king,” states the band’s manager and series Executive Producer David Edwards (Rock Star INXS). “I’m tired of hearing the same Top 40 music in the background of every film and kept thinking, ‘This scene would be so much better with a heavy rock track’, so we made it happen.” On deciding to go with a horror series, Edwards added, “Horror and rock go hand in hand. Alice Cooper started combining the two back in the 70’s with his crazy theatricsand it’s a genre we love.”
The “Welcome To Daisyland” soundtrack features music from THE DEAD DAISIES latest album released via Spitfire Music in April 2018 and includes the tracks “Dead And Gone,” “Judgement Day” and title track “Burn It Down.”
In conjunction with the premiere of “Welcome To Daisyland,” THE DEAD DAISIES will be releasing a special acoustic version of the show’s theme song “Dead And Gone” on February 14 across all digital platforms.
Burn It Down is a muscular tour-de-force, a tornado of pounding drums, pulverizing bass, screaming guitars and in-your-face raw vocals. Burn It Down will do just that: burn down everything in its path until there is nothing left standing – a perfect sound for an equally spirited show!

ABOUT WELCOME TO DAISYLAND:
“Welcome To Daisyland” is a horror anthology series set behind the gates of the Daisyland Carnival, a music & mayhem shadow show. The carnival is a small but legendary one that began its run sometime in the early 1970s. No one knows for sure exactly when, only that is has appeared every fall, across the country in a series of vacant lots and overgrown fields, far from the reach of city lights and the law. Once the gates have closed and all the patrons have gone home, the cast of the carnival comes to life. Each member of the troupe has a dark gift and job to fulfill, as Daisyland is a place for the collection of souls. Daisyland is open from dark to dawn. Where dreams come true and nightmares begin.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I view the trailer as more of a “teaser” clip than another substantial, I am definitely interested in this one since its going to be something that brings the music of the Dead Daisies to more and more people. I don’t know if you’ve managed to catch them yet but if you haven’t you are cheating yourself out of a good old fashioned Hard Rocking time. Let’s hope that this puts them in front of more people and that we see a major act give them the nod for direct tour support. I’ll likely share additional trailers and broadcast announcements since it will add more topical content to our “Film and Television” area which we never mind doing. What about you readers? Does this interest you at all? Chime in down below.
