NEW YORK, Jan. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Dead Daisies are proud to announce the addition of Doug Aldrich to the lineup as lead guitarist in the powerful music collective. Guitarist Richard Fortus and keyboardist Dizzy Reed will be taking a break from the band for a momentous project in 2016.
Aldrich is currently in Nashville with the Daisies working with producer Marti Frederiksen on their follow up to Revolución, released last year following the all-star outfit's trip to Cuba, where the hard rock group were part of a cultural exchange as guests of the Cuban Ministry of Culture, Cuban Institute of Music and the Cuban Rock Agency. The still untitled album will come out globally on SPV Records later this year.
Aldrich joins bassist Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake), guitarist David Lowy (MINK, Red Phoenix),John Corabi (Mötley Crüe, RATT) on vocals and Brian Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne, Billy Idol) on drums.
"I'm very, very happy to join my friends Marco, Brian, John and David in the next chapter of The Dead Daisies. I love the band and I'm looking forward to getting busy on the new record. This band is bringing back a raw, back to the bones sound that a lot of groups go for but The Dead Daisies are looking to nail. At this point in time, we are looking to have a kick ass Rock 'n' Roll album in the can by spring 2016." – Doug Aldrich
