The Dead Daisies New Single and Short Film Unleashed Friday



Riveting Hard Rockers The Dead Daisies have lined up the release of their captivating new single ‘A Song And A Prayer’, for today, November 4th on Spitfire Music / SPV.

A short film, reflecting the poignant story behind the lyrics of ‘A Song And A Prayer’, the new single to be taken from The Dead Daisies’ much acclaimed new album ‘Make Some Noise’, which crashed into the album charts worldwide in August, was unveiled Friday at:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KDJu9I2zYkY&feature=youtu.be      

Says John Corabi: “This song turned out to have a special vibe to it, very accessible, which is really cool. But the lyrics are rather dark. In the end it's about hope, it talks about all the troubles we're all going through - and that you have to be hopeful, that you will come out of it. Always look on the positive side, that's the message.”

The Dead Daisies, who were recently special guests on KISS’ entire ‘Freedom To Rock’ US tour, have just played their first ever USO headline tour for Servicemen and –women in South Korea.
Today, November 4th, they commence performing with KISS on the Kiss Kruise in Cozumel, Mexico, until November 9th.

The Dead Daisies, a ‘must-see’ live act then fly in to the UK to perform sold out shows starting November 12th.


The Dead Daisies are: Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio), John Corabi (Mötley Crüe, The Scream), Marco Mendoza (Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy), Brian Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne, Foreigner) and David Lowy (Red Phoenix, Mink).
