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.

AsĀ 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.

    Saw these supporting Black Star Riders and they were superb, the debut album lacks the playing of Richie Fortus but this new stuff should match the live feel!
    Just youtube'd their stuff, and I like the guitars and drums, but I don't like the singing. Reminds me too much of Counting Crows type songs.
    Kinda sad that quite a few of the current Guns N Roses lineup do more things outside of that band than anything else (Ashba with Sixx A.M, Bumblefoot with his solo stuff, Fortus with this) Makes me think if they actually made a new album it would be pretty good
    isn't there an australian band with kind of the same name? i think i saw them in the Toronto stop of the rockstar uproar tour
    this reminds me of the Simpsons gag "introducung the 2nd best band in the world" - made up of Garfunkel, Oates etc...
