When I recorded an interview with Marco Mendoza on 3rd January he accidently let slip the name of the new album from The Dead Daisies and we had to bleep it out when the Show was uploaded – http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/interviews/3279-ni-rocks-interview-with-marco-mendoza.html .  This week the band have officially announced that the album will be entitled “Burn It Down” and that it will released via Spitfire Music/ SPV on 6th April 2018. The new album will be the first to feature drummer Deen Castronovo of Bad English / Journey fame. Tour dates have also been announced, but unfortunately they don’t include Belfast or Dublin. However, Marco Mendoza does play a gig in Voodoo, Belfast on 18th February with support coming from the Pat McManus Band.






Press release below -

BURN IT DOWN” is a muscular tour-de-force, a tornado of pounding drums, pulverizing bass, screaming guitars and in-your-face raw vocals. Evoking the best of 70s Rock, with moments of Birmingham’s finest, blended with the early works of Boston’s best, “Burn It Down” will do just that: Burn down everything in its path until there is nothing left standing.

Recorded in Nashville with Marti Frederiksen at the helm, the band finished their 4th studio album “Burn It Down” in December, with Anthony Focx once again handling the mix and mastering legend Howie Weinberg adding his magic.

John Corabi about the new record:

“I’m extremely excited about our new record “BURN IT DOWN”! It was a pleasure to once again work with Marti Frederiksen and the band on what I believe is the next great step in The Dead Daisies journey. This is a balls-out old school rock record!!! Enjoy it, and see you all on our massive 2018 world tour!!!! Peace,Crabby”

Doug Aldrich puts it quite simply, yet to the point:

“The new Daisies album will melt your face! It is raw and in-your-face with a whole new sound!”


With the band eager to get on the road and in true Daisies’ fashion, the band announced the first of many BURN IT DOWN TOUR dates slated for 2018 right before Christmas with fans turning out in droves at the on-sale date. Many more dates are to be announced including the band’s highly anticipated return to Japan, North America, Mexico and South America!


With Deen joining the bands line-up to record the new Album, The Dead Daisies are: Doug Aldrich(Whitesnake, Dio), John Corabi (Mötley Crüe, The Scream), Marco Mendoza (Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy), Deen Castronovo (Bad English, Journey) and David Lowy (Red Phoenix, Mink).


One thing is for certain: within a short amount of time, The Dead Daisies have made a massive impression on the rock scene and managed to garner the one thing that every band desires but only so few ever have: HARD CORE FANS! They love the Daisies and the Daisies love them back!


Rock is indeed alive and well!!!
