The Dead Daisies, a band whose music evokes the rocking songs of the late '70s and early '80s, are releasing their self-titled debut album Aug. 13 via Spitfire Music. Their first single, 'Lock' N' Load,' features a collaboration with guitar great Slash, who also co-wrote the tune.

The band features the talents of singer Jon Stevens (INXS), Guns N' Roses guitarist Richard Fortus and keyboardist Dizzy Reed, drummer Alex Carapetis (Nine Inch Nails, Julian Casablancas), and Thin Lizzy bassist Marco Mendoza. Their freewheeling, relaxed, and hook inspired approach to rock is evident with 'Lock 'N' Load,' and it's an attitude that they are taking on the road with their participation on the Rockstar Energy Uproar festival. One of their most recent tweets had the band professing their love for "good 'ol fashioned rock n roll," and to sample more of their stylings, fans can download their 'Man Overboard' EP for free.

The debut album, recorded by producer John Fields (Jimmy Eat World, Switchfoot) at Wishbone Studios in North Hollywood, took just two weeks to complete. The Dead Daisies start their Uproar festival journey August 9 in Scranton, Pa. (Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain) in support of their debut album.
