As the world slowly comes out of lockdown, rock group THE DEAD DAISIES today blasts out of  the gates with a smorgasbord of treats for rock fans all over the world. Releasing their latest  single and using Epic Games’ Unreal Engine (best known for the hit game Fortnite), the band  worked with Creative Works London to create the video and its own mobile game DAISYS  REVENGE. The Dead Daisies are taking it up a level at the intersection of the entertainment  industry where rock music meets gaming.

Committed to making the music from their widely acclaimed, chart-storming album Holy Ground  as accessible as possible throughout the pandemic, the band decided to cover every possible  touchpoint with their music and the story of Daisy, their eponymous heroine.

Out today, the latest radio edit single featuring drummer Tommy Clufetos ‘Like No Other’, is the  fifth to be released from the HOLY GROUND project. This is accompanied by a new video  which continues the narrative of Daisy who starred in the video on one of their previous singles  entitled ‘Bustle And Flow’.

That narrative continues with the launch of a rock-fuelled rapid-fire retro mobile game, Daisys  Revenge, based on the popular ‘Duck Hunt’ console game of the 80s. The game follows Daisy  on her quest through Daisyland and streams HOLY GROUND throughout, thrilling and  challenging the player while they rock out!

The excitement doesn’t stop there with the same storyline featuring as part of the live shows with the first dates announced kicking off 23rd June in the US and more dates to be announced  in the coming months as live shows return globally.

“The Dead Daisies are known for creating unique and engaging fan experiences” said rock  impresario David Edwards, the band’s manager. “We like to innovate and connect with rock  music fans on every level - we already have live podcasts, and a show on Monsters of Rock  radio and now with the game and video we can further extend the music’s reach while keeping  fans guessing what Daisy will do next.” 

The Dead Daisies worked with London-based agency Creative Works, to develop this inventive  way of creating new and meaningful connections with rock fans while they waited for live events  to be rescheduled. Taking the graphics and narrative from The Dead Daisies chart topping  music video ‘Bustle and Flow’, Daisys Revenge, a free to play mobile game, is a world-first for the music industry. Featuring supernatural heroine Daisy, it transforms the music’s video’s  narrative into a high impact, fast-paced, loud and rocking, FPS game.


This ground-breaking multi-platform interconnecting narrative, first sees Daisy emerging from  the Daisyland underworld in the Bustle and Flow music video. Then she dominates in the  Daisys Revenge mobile game, setting player challenges in Daisyland, and her journey  continues with The Dead Daisies latest single release ‘Like No Other’ where the story picks up,  following Daisy who has travelled to the future to face a new enemy.


The catalyst for this pioneering approach came as a result of the global pandemic seeing the  postponement of all of 2020’s live music tours. Live music shows are the lifeblood of the music circuit. Now, music fans and especially fans of The Dead Daisies, ‘one of the most exciting  bands in modern rock’ have a concert in their pocket. And with the announcement of a raft of  global tour dates set for the second half of 2021 The Dead Daisies music is now accessible on  every platform: Live and Digital.


There is more to come: Daisys Revenge is the first of a series of planned media brands from  The Dead Daisies. Talks are underway with major players to create DAISYLAND, the TV series.
