THE DEAD DAISIES — the hard rock “collective” founded by Australian musician and businessman David Lowy — are slated to release a new digital EP, “The Lockdown Sessions”, on July 17 via Steamhammer/SPV. The effort will contain four acoustic tracks, all of them exclusive to this EP.
Comments SPV label manager Olly Hahn: “We’re proud and happy to continue to work with this fantastic act after our successful collaboration over recent years. The combination of THE DEAD DAISIES and SPV is and will continue to be a recipe for success!” THE DEAD DAISIES add: “No place like home and we are where we belong, ready for the next exciting chapter, our best yet!”
Regarding “The Lockdown Sessions”, Lowy said: “As soon as it had become clear that our tour and album release would have to be postponed until 2021, we recorded these acoustic tracks with our fans in mind. ‘The Lockdown Sessions’ is our way to stay in touch with everyone despite the global restrictions.”
“The Lockdown Sessions” contains four tracks: “Unspoken”, “Righteous Days” and an amazing version of the HUMBLE PIE classic “30 Days In The Hole”, with these three exclusive unplugged versions also featuring as powerful rock tracks on the upcoming album, “Holy Ground”. The EP rounds out with a stripped back version of “Fortunate Son”, featuring drummer Deen Castronovo on lead vocals.
“The Lockdown Sessions” unmistakably proves that Glenn Hughes has already added his distinctive sound to THE DEAD DAISIES.
“As we all know, Glenn is a fantastic bassist and vocalist who is rightly referred to as ‘The Voice Of Rock,'” Lowy says. “We really enjoyed ourselves with him at the studio and can hardly wait to present the new songs and current lineup live on stage.”
