Marco Mendoza, known from his involvement in Whitesnake, Ted Nugent, The Dead Dasies, Thin Lizzy and more is about to release a new single and music video for the song ‘Leah‘.
This is a ballad about missing my home, my kids and my wife who is amazing and my rock, so I wanted to write something for her”. Mendoza says.
Marco continues “Soren Andersen, who produced and mixed my album had a rough idea and chord progression for a ballad, so before you know it emotionally I was driven to sing to her, after chocking a few times and a few tears ‘Leah‘ happened !!
“it is a beautiful song and after so many requests to play this song live we decided to shoot a music video and release it as single The setting and the weather in Mallorca was perfect! In fact we had a blast shooting it and I hope fans will like and enjoy!! Mendoza ends.
‘Leah‘ will be released on June 14th via Mighty Music.
With July 4th just around the corner, The Dead Daisies wanted to not only celebrate Independence Day but Freedom around the world.
Bassist Marco Mendoza sums it up nicely for all of us:
“My career as a Musician has allowed me to travel around the World quite a few times to experience different lands & cultures. Back in the USA we live with the abundance of life and freedom unequalled anywhere else and that’s a fact! On July 4th let’s fly the flag high and celebrate Independence Day and all it stands for!!! I for one am thankful & grateful to be able to live in the US OF A!!! The land of the free & the home of the brave!! VIVA THE USA and VIVA LA ROCK!!!!”
To that end, the band is proud to announce the release of an American Classic ‘We’re An American Band‘ in celebration of Independence Day and all it stands for. They will also drop a little video for it on July 4th.
Singer John Corabi: “We first did ‘American Band‘ by Grand Funk Railroad for our troops in South Korea. We wanted to bring a little bit of something “American” to our men and women in uniform, and give them a taste of home. So, what better way than a classic American tune by a legendary American band. The song went over so well we decided to keep playing it and subsequently decorded it for our “Live and Louder” album. Enjoy the Daisies version, the video, and your FREEDOM the troops are fighting for on this celebration of our independence as a young, sovereign nation!!!”
Guitarist Doug Aldrich: “Hey Friends!!! We are dropping a new song to celebrate the 4th of July. For me, I think it’s a time to remember and appreciate the Freedom that all of our own countries provide for us. Stay strong and let the music move ya!”
Fresh from their European Tour playing at some of the biggest Rock Festivals and Sold-Out headline shows, culminating in beyond capacity headline performances in Salzburg, Budapest, Prague & Japan, the band are making their way to the USA.
