The Dead Daisies have announced the first part of a world tour.

They’ve revealed dates across Europe, Japan and South America for this summer, with a full list of North American shows to be announced in due course.

The run of 28 performances get underway at Germany’s Rock Hard Festival on June 2 and wrap up at Argentina’s Teatro Vorterix on July 16.

Guitarist Doug Aldrich says: “The Dead Daisies update: Getting my guitars ready for the 2017 Live & Louder tour. We’re gonna be doing a quick blast this summer – come and hang with us when you hear about the band coming through! See ya soon for a good dose of the Daisies!”

The band have lined up the dates to mark the release of the 16-track Live & Louder record which was recorded on their 2016 tour in support of third studio album Make Some Noise. In addition to the standard release, Live & Louder will launch in digipak format containing a DVD featuring a documentary, all the music videos from Make Some Noise and a picture gallery.

It’ll be released on May 19 via Spitfire Music/SPV.

Lead singer John Corabi says: “We’re extremely excited and proud of our new album Live & Louder. A lot of the fans have been writing to us and saying how much they loved our records but were even more blown away by the band live!

“This documents our last UK and European tour, and also shows the world how truly loud and supportive The Dead Daisies fans are!”

A full tracklist and pre-order details will be revealed in due course, but a teaser video – along with all 2017 tour dates – can be seen below.
