The Dead Daisies are a powerful musical collective with a rotating line-up that features some of the best rock musicians on the planet and a sound that’s influenced by late ‘70s and early ‘80s hard rock – big choruses, powerful melodies and strong hooks. Following the release of their critically acclaimed album in late 2013, The Dead Daisies release the Face I Love EP on September 8 through Spitfire Music/PIAS. In addition to the driving rock of title track the EP is backed with new songs “Angel In Your Eyes” and “Your Karma” that will leave you wanting to hear more. The EP ends with a cover version of the bands live favourite “Helter Skelter”.
The band has already released their very own “Face I Love” App on their Facebook page on the 23rd June. Created to represent the iconic daisy skull logo of the band and allow fans to be part of the EP cover art and music video, Facebook users are able to upload an image of the face they love to the App to create a photo-mosaic portrait of The Dead Daisies skull – and make it bloom!
