Dead Daisies, a supergroup consisting of Guns N' Roses and Rolling Stones members have officially announced recording their first tracks as a band and are aiming to unleash a fresh EP in the near future.
The band itself features GN'R's Dizzy Reed and Richard Fortus, the Stones' bassist Darryl Jones, David Lowy on second guitar, drummer Charley Drayton and vocalist Jon Stevens, known for his three-year stint with INXS.
As Classic Rock reports, the band has wrapped up three new tunes, marking their first recorded material as a unit. "I think we do well under pressure," Reed said. "We had some riffs and I think we all sort of found a common ground. We all listened to the same music. It's kind of what we do.
"When people hear it - there's not a lot of bands doing this - I think they're pleasantly surprised," the keyboardist noted. "You're making people happy because you're playing good rock 'n' roll music. There's not any other way to describe it. It's just good rock 'n' roll music."
When it comes to more specific future plans, Stevens added: "We're doing some shows in Australia in February/March and we'll hopefully get in then for a few days and do some stuff."
The band's self-t-tled debut was made available back in 2013 as a part of Classic Rock magazine.
