When The Dead Daisies invited fans to contribute their face to the ‘Face I Love’ video over 5000 fans globally uploaded their mug shots.
The video features photo submissions from the fans globally via the “Face I Love” App, which launched the single and invited fans to upload pictures of themselves, or any face they love, to participate in a series of events as well as a contest which included a trip to join the band on the road. The photos from the App were also uploaded to a photo-mosaic portrait for the digital version of the EP.
“For Face I Love we really wanted to make a video to honour our fans because we really appreciate them. They make it so much fun for us and we wanted to make a cool video that featured the faces we love seeing at our shows. We worked with a talented director who came up with the concept – a CGI tornado and our skull logo made up of fan photos…we had our video,” said The Dead Daisies founder David Lowy.
Directed by Israeli filmmaker Gil Elkrief and Israeli Animator Moshe Zilbernagel, “Face I Love” was pieced together during a very tumultuous time for the filmmakers as they are currently in hostile territory. The video includes live performance footage, more than 80 video clips, 200 tour photos and quite a bit of modern technology to bring it creatively together with a tornado!
“Face I Love” is the first single from their current EP, which was released in August, already receiving more than 5,000 spins in just 7 weeks, across the USA.
The Dead Daisies have spent most of 2014 on the road playing to more than 600,000 music fans across the globe, including festivals, as well as recent tours over the summer with Bad Company and Lynyrd Skynyrd, and in August with KISS and Def Leppard, with more dates being routed now!
