Fresh off ZZ Top’s Australian Tour, The Dead Daisies are set to release their lead single ‘Lock ’N’ Load’. Featuring the signature guitar riffs of Slash and laced with Jon Stevens’ trademark vocals this classic track will rock you to your very core.
“Slash and I wrote ‘Lock ‘N’ Load’ which was recorded with John Fields, who produced The Dead Daisies album. Slash loves the song and the album, and is really happy with the way they have turned out. He doesn’t just play on anyone’s album… this is a labour of love.” – Jon Stevens
Slash recently tweeted on March 23:
‘Heard the mix of “Lock & Load.” A song Jon Stevens & I wrote. Sounds great. He’s recorded it w/his band DEAD DAISIES. W/my gtrs’.
Joining The Dead Daisies directly off the Thin Lizzy Australian tour is Californian, hard rock bassist Marco Mendoza. With a career spanning more than twenty years, Mendoza has played with the cream of the rock industry, including Thin Lizzy, Ted Nugent and Whitesnake.
Hammond keyboardist extraordinaire Clayton Doley (The Divinyls, Jimmy Barnes, Silverchair), also joins The Dead Daisies for the Aerosmith Tour dates.
‘Lock ‘N’ Load’ will be released digitally on iTunes on April 19, 2013 – but you can check out a quick teaser for the single below:
