MetalTalk's Band Of The Year 2016, The Dead Daisies, have had a line-up change with drummer Brian Tichy leaving the band to be replaced by former Journey drummer Deen Castronovo.

The Dead Daisies are about to begin the recording of their fourth album which due in early 2018.

A statement from the band reads:

"Deen is here in Nashville with us where we are beginning the recording of the new album today. We'd like to thank Brian Tichy who has decided to pursue other projects next year. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

"We cannot wait for you guys to hear this new album we are working on! It will be a real bone-shaker!"

Castronovo was a member of Journey from 1998 to 2015 and has also played drums with Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler, Steve Vai and Paul Rodgers.

The Dead Daisies guitarist Doug Aldrich collaborated with Castronovo in Revolution Saints on their second album, 'Light In The Dark', came was released in October and was reviewed in the very first edition of MetalTalk's brand new audio album review show, You Spin Me Round. You can take a listen right here:

Castronovo was fired from Journey two years ago after he was arrested for a variety of charges involving a former fiancée, including physical abuse, coercion and unlawful use of a weapon. He later spent fifteen days in jail and was sent to rehab for the fifth time, this time for seventy-five days at the Hazelden Betty Ford Springbrook facility in Beaverton, Oregon.
