GNR/Whitesnake Supergroup Joins Def Leppard/KISS Tour

Rock supergroup The Dead Daisies are about to join up with the mammoth Def Leppard/KISS summer tour, after already smashing it on the road with Bad Company and Lynyrd Skynyrd this month.

The band features Jon Stevens (Noisewoks, INXS and rumour has it a 90s Van Halen audition) on vocals, guitarists Richard Fortus (Guns N’ Roses/Psychedelic Furs) and David Lowy (Mink/Red Phoenix), bassist Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy/Whitesnake), Dizzy Reed (Guns N’ Roses/Hookers & Blow) on keys, and drummer Brian Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne/Whitesnake/Billy Idol).

Before joining the Def Leppard/KISS tour, the band will hit the studio with producer Ben Grosse (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stone Temple Pilots, Marilyn Manson, Filter, KD Lang) in Los Angeles to record some new material.

But fans and the curious won’t have to wait too long to hear new music: the band will release a new EP titled Face I Love on August 1, featuring four hard-hitting rock tracks including a cover of The Beatles’ “Helter Skelter.” The EP’s title track was launched in late June in conjunction with an innovative app where fans were encouraged to upload uploading photos of faces they love, to become part of the artwork for the EP cover and touring posters.
