The Dead Daisies fifth studio album HOLY GROUND sees the light of day on January 22, 2021. The band have covered a lot of ground getting to where they are today with singer/bassist, Glenn Hughes. As a band they have finally reached holy grounds with the leaner four-piece outfit delivering a new urgency and vigour to the overall sound and vibe. This album exudes an undeniable force that will please even the most hardened rock devotees.
Fans for years have been bemoaning the media’s attempt to declare ‘rock is dead,’ The Dead Daisies have fought back brilliantly with this body of work. Moody, at times dark, powerful and rhythmic, the album raises the bar for the genre. Laden with the chart-topping hits such as ‘Unspoken’, ‘Bustle and Flow’ and ‘Holy Ground’, these tracks have appeared on multiple Rock Charts and hundreds of playlists & digital radio stations around the globe.
HOLY GROUND is eleven tracks of pure unadulterated rock and is already receiving rave reviews.
Glenn Hughes says – “From the opening track HOLY GROUND, we were building a strong foundation. Each song has its own theme, full of drama, emotion and groove, all the way through to ‘Far Away’ the autobiographical last song. We gave it our all, focused and passionate. Take this ride with us, maybe you’ll find yourself in the lyrics.”
The band can’t wait to play these songs live! When they do hit the road, returning to the Daisies amazing line-up is the monstrous, hard-hitting, powerhouse drummer, Tommy Clufetos (Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne).
So strap in, this is going to be one hell of a ride!
“HOLY GROUND makes me happy when listening to it now that it’s done and we’ve had time away. It’s heavy, groovy and is a fresh start for the band. It has the guitars that you expect, but a new direction lyrically from Glenn. His lyrics are deep and leave room for imagination.” – Doug Aldrich
With Holy Ground, The Dead Daisies have ensured that they will no longer follow anyone. They are leaders. And they stand, proudly, on HOLY GROUND.
