The Dead Daisies is a band that originally started as a rock based jam band in Australia back in 2012. The band was made up of various seasoned rock musicians who were known for touring with various bands like Whitesnake, The Rolling Stones and Guns n Roses. Early on, the band had constant revolving members, but they eventually put out a debut album. In 2014, John Corabi joined the band for a tour and by the end of the tour the band decided to solidify its line-up with Corabi on vocals. Corabi being involved in this band is when I got interested in them. For those who don't know, John Corabi is the singer/songwriter who took over as the lead singer of Motley Crue for their brilliant 1994 self-titled album. I've been a fan of his ever since. His songwriting and vocals are simply killer. He has fronted several bands and even released a solo album over the years, but it really feels like he has found his home with The Dead Daises.
With Corabi in place, The Dead Daises quickly released an album in 2015 and while that album was pretty good, it felt a bit rushed. Their newest album, Make Some Noise, doesn't feel rushed at all and it really shows how great this band can be. Anybody who knows Corabi's lyrics and music can just hear his influence on this album and that is a great thing. The album starts with the lead single called Long Way To Go, which is a great rock song that describes how we as human beings haven't progressed the way we should have by now. Other songs on this album that I really dig are We All Fall Down (my favorite from the album), Make Some Noise and Mine All Mine. The entire album features great hooks and Corabi's great rock vocals.
The Dead Daises are touring the entire planet to promote this album and I'm sure that is a classic rock show worth checking out. Hopefully I will see them if they come back to the States.
