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”!

Artist: Journey Title: “Revelation” Label: Columbia Records Release Date: 6/3/2008 Genre: Rock Rating: 4/5
If you haven’t been keeping track of this kind of stuff, let me begin by saying that the new Journey release “Revelation” finds the band stronger than ever with their new and fourth singer. Yes, I did say fourth, as Steve Perry left for good after the brief touring for “Trial By Fire” and was replaced by Steve Augeri. He would record two albums with the band before blowing out his voice and finding himself replaced by former Yngwie Malmsteen front man Jeff Scott Soto, who after the cited “musical differences” was replaced by newcomer Arnel Pineda. Are you still with me? Good, let’s continue along then. According to press, Arnel was found on YouTube.com singing Journey covers with his band and the voice he demonstrated having made the bands hierarchy decide that he was the perfect person for the role. The new album would be a colossal effort that was sure to impress even the most doubting of fans who wonder how the group can continue in good conscious without Perry or even Augeri. To those people I have to say when you get an earful of how Arnel sings you will be impressed enough to give the guy a chance. With “Revelation” the band has chosen to not only give you a full album of new music, but also an additional CD of re-recorded, or “re-visited” classic numbers as done by the bands roster of 2008 and a full length concert DVD that covers both worlds. Given the scope of the release I have broken it down into a few sections to make more sense of it. Continue reading “Revelation” by Journey→
