Fan Reactions To Tichy’s Tweet

The reasons behind his departure aren’t clear. This statement received lots of reactions from fans. Many expressed surprise and disappointment over the news. One person wrote:

“Oh no! With you on the drums, DD’s had the best lineup. Won’t be buying a ticket now.”

Another one shared a similar feeling and said:

“You are an amazing drummer. Their loss. Looking forward to hearing about your next chapter.”

The Return Of Clufetos

The Dead Daisies took to their Instagram account to share the news of their summer tour in the USA and the return of Clufetos to the band. The announcement came with a group photo featuring Tommy. The band wrote the following in the caption:

“We’re hitting the road in the USA this Summer for a limited number of killer dates in some of our favorite cities! We’re gonna rip up these joints, playing some new music and, of course, all of your favorites! We’re happy to welcome TDD alumni Tommy Clufetos back to the lineup, so strap yourself in for these ball-tearing shows! Stay tuned; we’re working on getting the ticket links….
In the meantime, sign up for ticket notifications!”

The Band’s Upcoming Album And Tour

Clufetos first joined the Dead Daisies in 2015 and is returning after a stint by Tichy. The band is currently working on a new album with producer Marti Frederiksen. The album will probably arrive later this year. In a statement, John Corabi noted:

“We’re very excited about a ton of things happening as of late. We’ve been working really hard on new material with our good pal Marti Frederiksen down at Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals and at Sienna Studios in Nashville. We can’t wait for you all to hear what we’re doing and have done! We’ve also brought back our long-time buddy (and Daisies alumni) Tommy Clufetos to kick this new music in the teeth. We’re looking forward to seeing all of our incredibly supportive friends, fans, and family out on the road, right here in the ‘Good Old U.S. of A’ kicking off June 6… Thank you, we love you!”

The Dead Daisies plans a month-long U.S. tour starting June 6 in New York, NY, and ending on June 22 in Roseville, CA. The tour will visit several cities, including Columbus, OH; Nashville, TN; and Los Angeles, CA.
