May 27 — The Dead Daisies is scheduled to release its new album this summer, and in anticipation of its release, will officially debut the album’s lead single next week.
The band will officially premiere the album’s lead single, ‘Radiance’ June 2 through blabbermouth.net. ‘Radiance’ is available to stream and download here. Its musical arrangement is a heavy, plodding work whose guitar line immediately lends itself to comparison to works from the likes of Black Label Society.
The song’s lyrical theme is meant to deliver a socially conscious message according to the band.
Drummer Brian Tichy has rejoined The Dead Daisies for its new record. Tichy, who was a founding member of The Dead Daisies left the band in 2014, but returned in 2015, remaining with the band in his second stint until 2017. He was replaced with a rotating cast of drummers along the way, such as John Tempesta (Rob Zombie, The Cult, Testament), Charley Drayton (The Cult, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young) and most recently Tommy Clufetos (Black Sabbath, L.A. Rats, Alice Cooper).
“I’m excited for everyone to hear ‘Radiance’, a little slab of new Daisies rock!,” Tichy said. “It’s been a lot of fun recording with Doug, Glenn and David, and now I’m psyched to throw down live with the guys! Hope to see you all out there on tour this year!”
