The Dead Daisies have announced 12 North American shows in August as part of their Live & Louder World Tour, in support of their upcoming live album, Live and Louder, scheduled for a May 19 release on Spitfire Music/SPV/eOne. Heralded “The Dirty Dozen Tour,” the trek is set to kick off Aug. 10 in Chicago, Illinois, and will wrap Aug. 27 Las Vegas, Nevada.

“The Dirty Dozen Tour” is inspired by the classic 1960s movie of the same name. It will be the band’s first North American headline tour.

“We’re all very excited for our very first North American headline run,” said vocalist John Corabi. “We’re kicking it all off on Aug. 10 in Chicago and ending it in ‘Sin City’ Las Vegas! You guys have been amazing with all of your support and requests for shows here, so we’re giving it to you ‘LIVE AND LOUDER’ and ‘down and dirty’ on ‘The Dirty Dozen Tour 2017!'” See ya on the road kids!”

Special guests on this run will be The Dives, which The Dead Daisies made instant friends with on the previous year’s KISS Kruise.

Before being turned loose on North American audiences, the troops will be fresh from playing some of the most prestigious and high-profile U.K. and European rock festivals, coupled with a series of headline club shows, dates in Japan and their debut in South America. From South America, it’s back to one of the EU’s largest festivals, Woodstock Poland, to be part of a “Concert Inspired by Freedom,” which will see the band perform with a 60-piece orchestra.

The Live & Louder World Tour 2017 visit the following countries: Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden, United Kingdom, Holland, France, Belgium, Hungary, Czech Republic, Japan, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Poland, Canada and the United States.

Live and Louder will be available in multiple deluxe formats and was mixed by Anthony Focx (Aerosmith, Bad Company).

Live & Louder really helps define The Dead Daisies’ sound,” said lead guitarist Doug Aldrich. “Like bands I’ve been involved with co-producing (Whitesnake and Dio), we have a great team that makes sure our sound is consistent and we are always looking to pump it up. Onstage I just play guitar but our crew and production team are very instrumental in capturing what happens on stage. Now get out there and go live and louder with us this summer!”

The Dead Daisies lineup:

Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio) —  guitars
John Corabi (Mötley Crüe, The Scream) — vocals
David Lowy (Red Phoenix, Mink) — guitars
Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake) —  bass
Brian Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne, Foreigner) —  drums
