The Dead Daisies have announced a European tour for next year.

The band will play throughout April and May in support of their as-yet-untitled fourth studio album – the follow-up to 2016’s Make Some Noise.

The band say in a statement: “We are so excited to announce the first part of our world tour for 2018. Having been in the studio for a few months it certainly feels great to rise up and get ready to do what we do best.

“We really cannot wait to burn it down with you guys and get the spirit of rock to set us free – and we can finally stop bitching about not having any new songs to play!”

In the UK, The Dead Daisies will be joined by special guests The Treatment and The Amorettes, while German outfit The New Roses will join them on dates on mainland Europe.

Tickets will go on sale from December 21 (Thursday).

Last month, it was announced that The Dead Daisies had recruited former Journey drummer Deen Castronovo. He took over behind the kit from Brian Tichy, who left to “pursue other projects.”
