Supergroup The Dead Daisies have launched an animated video for Bustle And Flow, the second single to be taken from their upcoming album fifth album Holy Ground. A limited edition 12" vinyl release will be released at the end of the month. 

Bustle And Flow follows in the footsteps of Unspoken, released in April, and Righteous Days, released in August 2019 as news broke that former Deep Purple vocalist and bassist Glenn Hughes had joined the band, replacing John Corabi and Marco Mendoza. Righteous Days will also feature on the album, but has been re-recorded.

“Filled with energy and vigour, Bustle And Flow emerged as one of the last tracks to make the cut," says Glenn Hughes. "It builds and builds and has great movement. It’s about walking through the fear."

“I love the timing of the riff," says founder member and guitarist David Lowy. "It’s unusual and unexpected, kinda like a surprise. The chorus is a classic mix of Aussie rock (me), UK rock (Glenn) and US rock (Doug/Deen). It’s unmistakably borne out of the DNA of The Dead Daisies, pure badass rock."

The spooky animated video for Bustle And Flow was made by Creative Works London, who produced concert graphics for Guns N' Roses' Not In This Lifetime tour, and was built using Unreal Engine, the gaming software used to power Fortnite, Gears Of War and Batman: Arkham City.

Holy Ground was recorded at La Fabrique Studios in the South of France with producer Ben Grosse, and will arrive on January 22, 2021.

"When we started the new record with Glenn, we knew we had something very special," says drummer Deen Castronovo. "I'm so proud of this record, more than a lot of others I've played on in the past! Glenn along with Doug [Aldridge, guitar] and David created magic on this. We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we did recording it."
