Spitfire Music has teamed up with BlackBoxTV to develop a new horror anthology series, "Welcome To Daisyland". Australian-American musical collective THE DEAD DAISIES will provide the soundtrack for the series, which is scheduled to premiere this Valentine's Day (February 14).
"Welcome To Daisyland" was directed by award-winning filmmaker Tony E. Valenzuela ("Silverwood", "Harper's Globe") and stars Pepi Sonuga ("Ash Vs The Evil Dead").
"In 2018, content is king," states the band's manager and series executive producer David Edwards ("Rock Star INXS"). "I'm tired of hearing the same Top 40 music in the background of every film and kept thinking, 'This scene would be so much better with a heavy rock track', so we made it happen." On deciding to go with a horror series, Edwards added: "Horror and rock go hand in hand. Alice Cooper started combining the two back in the 70's with his crazy theatrics and it's a genre we love."
The "Welcome To Daisyland" soundtrack features music from THE DEAD DAISIES' latest album, released via Spitfire Music in April 2018, and includes the tracks "Dead And Gone", "Judgement Day" and title track, "Burn It Down".
In conjunction with the premiere of "Welcome To Daisyland", THE DEAD DAISIES will release a special acoustic version of the show's theme song "Dead And Gone" on February 14 across all digital platforms.
"Burn It Down" is a muscular tour-de-force, a tornado of pounding drums, pulverizing bass, screaming guitars and in-your-face raw vocals.
THE DEAD DAISIES are: Doug Aldrich (WHITESNAKE, DIO), John Corabi (MÖTLEY CRÜE, THE SCREAM), Marco Mendoza (WHITESNAKE, THIN LIZZY), Deen Castronovo (BAD ENGLISH, JOURNEY) and David Lowy (RED PHOENIX, MINK).
