The Dead Daisies will release “Locked and Loaded,” an album of cover songs on Aug. 23.
“This is a ‘tip of the hat’ to our heroes, bands that influenced us when we use to buy their records as teenagers,” singer John Corabi said. “Now we’ve put them all on one album and it seriously rocks!! You may think of us as ‘rock stars,’ but at the end of the day we’re just huge music fans!”
“Playing these songs live is a total adrenaline rush for all of us,” guitarist Doug Aldrich said. “Our audiences go nuts with our Daisified versions of these songs that come from an incredible time in music. It’s our way of paying homage to the ‘greats’ of rock.”
“Locked and Loaded” will be released in multiple formats, including digipak CD. colored vinyl with a CD, digital download and streaming.
