CD Review: The Dead Daisies Are Ready To "Lock 'N' Load" For Debut

The debut album from one of hard rock's latest super groups, The Dead Daises, will see the light of day on August 13 through Spitfire Music. The new self-titled release features members of INXS, Guns N Roses, Whitesnake, Mink and Nine Inch Nails. They are also currently touring as part of the Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival with is kicking off on August 9th.
The Dead Daises waste no time getting down to business with the opener "It's Gonna Take Time" and Richard Fortus' guitar and Jon Stevens vocals blaze a trail with their performances. The title-song, "Lock 'N' Load" features a guest appearance from Slash as he lends his signature blues/rock sound to this up-tempo rocker. The boys flashback to the big seventies rock sound in "Washington" and have fun with the loose southern rock groove of "Yeah Yeah Yeah" and "Miles In Front Of Me." The Dead Daises slow the tempo down for the power ballad "Yesterday," before getting down and dirty on the guitar shuffle of "Bible Row" and "Tomorrow." The album closes with the hard rock of "Talk To Me" as the band end on a high note with the heavy drumming of Alex Carapetis.
The Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival runs until mid-September so make sure to visit for a complete run-down of dates and to find out more about this latest supergroup.
