Black Sabbath ‘Sabotage’ Super Deluxe Edition, Out June 11

Published

on

Super Deluxe Edition Of The Band’s Sixth Album Features Newly Remastered Original Plus Full Live Show Recorded During 1975 Tour.
Both 4-CD And 4-LP + 7-Inch Versions Available via BMG On June 11

Black Sabbath was embroiled in a protracted legal battle with its former manager in 1975 when the band started recording its sixth studio album, Sabotage

The group felt sabotaged at every turn – hence the album’s title – but that feeling helped fuel the intensity of the new music they were making. In spite of the distractions, the band created one of the most dynamic – and underappreciated – albums of its legendary career.

BMG pays tribute to the patron saints of heavy metal with a collection that includes a newly remastered version of the original album along with a complete live show recorded during the band’s 1975 tour. 

SABOTAGE: SUPER DELUXE EDITION 

Will be available on June 11 as a 4-CD set and a 4-LP set that includes the same music on 180-gram vinyl plus a bonus 7-inch with the single edit for “Am I Going Insane (Radio)” and “Hole In The Sky” on the flipside, with artwork replicating the very rare Japanese release of the single. 

Both the 4-CD and 4-LP versions are available for pre-order now. The newly remastered version of the original album will be available via digital download and streaming services on the same day.

Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward recorded Sabotage in London and Brussels and co-produced the album with Mike Butcher. The eight songs were released first in the U.S. in July 1975, and then in the U.K. that September. Certified gold in America and Silver in the UK, Sabotage earned positive reviews for hard-hitting tracks like “Hole In The Sky” and “Symptom Of The Universe,” as well as more experimental music like “Supertzar,” which featured harp, Mellotron, and the English Chamber Choir.

SABOTAGE: SUPER DELUXE EDITION introduces 16 live tracks (13 of which are previously unreleased) that were recorded in 1975 during the quartet’s U.S. tour for the album. The performances include songs that span the group’s career, from the title track to its 1970 debut Black Sabbath to “Spiral Architect” and “Sabbra Cadabra” from its previous album, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath (1973). Sabotage is represented as well with live takes of “Hole In The Sky” and “Megalomania.”

The music is accompanied by in-depth liner notes that tell the story of the album through quotes from band members and the music media along with rare photos and press clippings from the era. 

Also included in the package is a 1975 Madison Square Garden replica concert book and Sabotage 1975 Tour colour poster.

The Dead Daisies Serve Up New Single, Video, Video Game & Tour Dates!

Published

on

The Dead Daisies wows its fandom on every level, serving up a feast of rock music and storytelling on every digital channel using Epic Games’ Unreal Engine

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 Like No Other 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.


LIKE NO OTHER – THE SINGLE & VIDEO

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’. 

DAISY’S REVENGERETRO MOBILE GAME

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 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.

Rock while you play Daisys Revenge! Available to download on the App Store & Google Play Store now.

Check out the mobile game here: www.daisysrevenge.com/


THE DEAD DAISIES – LIVE SHOWS

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.”

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.
