The Dead Daisies and The Answer, two of rock’s most celebrated, dynamic and utterly consummate bands to have emerged in recent years, have teamed up to play a UK and EUROPEAN co-headline tour in November and December.
The Dead Daisies’ hotly anticipated new album Make Some Noise, released August 5th on Spitfire Music / SPV, is a stunning, full-on hard rock ‘n’ roll triumph, packed with huge hooks, giant, intense guitar riffs and glorious, distinctive vocals. Superbly recorded and produced by Marti Frederiksen (Aerosmith, Def Leppard, Mötley Crüe, Buckcherry) in Nashville in February and March 2016, Make Some Noise way more than lives up to the legendary ‘classic third LP syndrome’ epithet. Which is exactly what you’d expect from such an incredible band, boasting former members of the likes of Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy, Foreigner, Dio, Mötley Crüe and more.
The Answers’ latest and 6th studio album, Solas, is uncharted territory for one of Northern Ireland’s finest exports and is set for release October 28th on Napalm Records, two weeks prior to the commencement of the tour. Solas, the Gaelic work for ‘light’, is a mind-blowing modern rock album with a daring cinematic and multi layered approach further reflecting the band’s Celtic roots for the first time. It was produced by Andy Bradfield and Avril Mackintosh (producers of the Rise album) and features an innovative co-write from iconic British composer and Massive Attack producer Neil Davidge.
“Solas is new and exciting. It’s a deeper, darker slant on what we do and a piece of work we’ve building towards since we first started writing songs together in our loft. The fact that we get to debut this new material with our mates The Dead Daisies just adds to the rush we’re currently experiencing. You really don’t want to miss this one!(Cormac Neeson, The Answer)
“Just getting ready to kick-off our Summer Tour in support of our new album “Make Some Noise”. I am super excited to announce we are coming back to the UK and Europe in the fall for a double dose of good old fashioned, no frills, kick-in-the-teeth, take no prisoners rock ‘n’ roll with our good friends in The Answer!” (John Corabi, The Dead Daisies).
