The US summer is synonymous with bands going on the road and for The Dead Daisies they’ll be spending it on tour with British Classic Rock giant Bad Company led by singer Paul Rodgers and American Southern Rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd for dates in the United States starting July 10.

Following the release of their self-titled debut earlier this year, The Dead Daisies are proud to announce the Face I Love EP, out Friday 1 August. The eponymous single drops Friday 20 June along with an innovative interactive Facebook Application that will allow fans to be a part of the album cover art and music video. The Dead Daisies are happy to announce that they have signed and will release their new single and EP with local indie label Social Family Records in Australia and New Zealand.

“This is the first group of songs that Diz, Marco and I have recorded with the Daisies,” declares Fortus. “I haven’t been this excited about a recording in a long, long time and think they really capture what the band has developed in to over the last year of touring. It’s new music for classic rock fans!”

The touring lineup includes Jon Stevens (Noiseworks/INXS) on vocals, David Lowy (Mink/Red Phoenix) on guitar, Richard Fortus (Guns N’ Roses/Psychedelic Furs) on lead guitar, Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy/Whitesnake) on bass, Dizzy Reed (Guns N’ Roses/Hookers & Blow) on keys and are pleased to announce the new addition of Brian Tichy (Whitesnake/Foreigner/Billy Idol) on drums.

“I am PSYCHED to hit, and I do mean, HIT!, the road, as well as every drum I can fit on the riser, this Summer with my buds in The Dead Daisies. We clicked the first time and we get to do it again with some of our favorite bands of all time! Bad Company with Simon Kirke! Lynyrd Skynyrd with good bud Michael Cartellone!! Yeah! My goal; groove hard, have fun, and swing for the cheap seats! I look forward to “A Dead Daisies Summer Of Rock, Volume, Ampitheaters, Power And Friends! See y’all there!!! – Brian Tichy

Despite being a band that consists of seasoned rock veterans, The Dead Daisies celebrate technology and are heavily integrated into social media. On Monday, June 23, 2014 The Dead Daisies will launch the “Face I Love” App on their Facebook page and as well as a mobile app. Created to represent the iconic daisy skull logo of the band, Facebook users will be able to upload an image of the face they love to the App to create a photo-mosaic portrait of The Dead Daisies skull – and make it bloom.

“Face I Love is dedicated to all MUSIC FANS around the world especially THE DEAD DAISIES FANS, because without you, we don’t get to do what we do,” attests Stevens. “It’s like having a massive extended family seeing your smiling faces at our shows and for us that makes it all worthwhile.”

When the project comes to a close on July 27, the photo-mosaic portrait of The Dead Daisies’ floral skull, made up of thousands of images of fans of the band, will be used as the artwork for EP, music video, single and other promotional items. The promotion is a true collaboration between the band and their fans, bringing real meaning to the title of the song, “Face I Love”.

Marco Mendoza affirms, “’Face I Love,’ was written for our fans and all the faces we see out in the audience when we play. I believe it was one of the first songs that we all collaborated on in the studio for the first time and BAM!!  Magic!!”

This will be the bands second tour of the United States, The Dead Daisies were part of the massive 25-date Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival through the US and Canada, along side Alice In Chains, & Jane’s Addiction among others in August and September of 2013.

The Dead Daisies’ self-titled debut album was released in the US and Canada through Caroline/Universal in August 2013 to exceptional reviews and was a featured iTunes release.

It has also received spins on the UK’s largest station BBC Radio 2. Their follow-up second single “Washington” was equally successful and went top 20 on the US Rock radio chart (Mediabase).

THE DEAD DAISIES Skull Photos Banned From Facebook!

DAISIES FANS STAND UP TO FACEBOOK IN THE NAME OF ART! 

As reported by The Dead Daisies:

As all our Dead Daisies fans know, we love skulls. We endeavour to find the coolest skulls the internet has to offer and share them with everyone on our Facebook page. Last Saturday we posted a photo of a human skull. It was created by seven women covered in body paint, lying down to form the shape of a skull. It was a modern interpretation of Salvador Dali’s masterpiece ‘In Voluptas Mors’.

The photo was a received extremely well, with huge appreciation, only to have it removed by Facebook with their reason being that it “didn’t follow the Facebook Community Standards”.

See image below…

Skull - 7 ladies shape - art

Not knowing whether Facebook realised that this was in fact an interpretation of Dali’s masterpiece, we then posted an image of the original masterpiece, which included an image of Dali, and asked the fans if they deemed the image to be of offensive/inappropriate nature.

Salvador Dali - In Voluptas Mors - 330990

The comments poured in, with thousands of fans sharing their absolute disbelief that such great art was banned. But alas, Facebook stepped in AGAIN, and removed the image, even after all of the support on the post.

We then decided to research these ” Facebook Community Standards”, and came across the following:Facebook - nudity and pornography rules - 2014

After reading this, it is abundantly clear that we have NOT in anyway, breached their guidelines as we have not shared any explicit sexual content, and have shared a significant art piece by one of the greatest artists of our time.

The Dead Daisies are big believers in freedom of speech and do not want to sit quietly while Facebook exercise unjust and inconsistent censorship.

It makes us ask, what should be deemed acceptable and what is unacceptable when there are thousands of images and videos of violence, racism, sexism, and hate that circulate daily?

We want to take a stand for the arts, and we need you to help!!

Today we want everyone to post either of the images we posted on Facebook to their personal or artist page, and use the hashtag #DaisiesLiveForArt.

Let’s rally together (peacefully!), and make a stand for good art!

Thank you all for your time!
