Daughtry unveils ‘Dearly Beloved’ album

New project due Sept 17th

Daughtry has announced their first LP in three years, Dearly Beloved, due out September 17th. The 13-track album features the Billboard Hard Rock Digital Songs Sales Chart No. 1 and Top 20 active rock radio Hit “Heavy Is the Crown,” along with instant pre-order gift track “Lioness” via Dogtree Records and Warner Music Group’s ADA Worldwide.

This news comes coupled with the announcement of the band’s upcoming headlining tour kicking off this November 2021 and featuring rock legends and fellow collaborators Sevendust, Tremonti and Travis Bracht. Tickets on sale July 23rd via Ticketmaster.

The 30 date tour will feature the band performing recent hits and new album staples “World On Fire” and “Heavy Is the Crown,” along with early buzzers “Evil” and the award-contending “Changes Are Everything.” To hold fans and music lovers over, Daughtry serves us even more sonic art with the single “Lioness,” – a melodic and guitar-laden gem, whose anxiously building tempo beautifully couples vocal lead, Chris Daughtry’s unwavering tone and range. Its lyric video is set to premiere Saturday July 16th at 10 am EST on YouTube.

Three singles released, Dearly Beloved has been clearly provided and marks the yet released body of work as one of their best to date. Maintaining the direction the first two singles have offered the band, they continue to embrace their hard rock roots with new song “Lioness,” as previously evidenced by Chris’ recent praised and applauded collaboration with Sevendust’s Lajon Witherspoon for their reimagining of the hit song “Hunger Strike (Temple of the Dog Cover)” by Eddie Vedder and the late Chris Cornell – which continues to stand as one of their boldest moves.

After performances on Loudwire Nights and TV’s No. 1 daytime talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, fans can expect to see more of the band through performances for iHeart and the upcoming Recording Academy MusiCares and Amy Winehouse Foundation Benefit: Back to Amy, where Daughtry will be honoring the late great singer with his own rendition of her fan favorite “I Know I’m No Good” livestreaming on July 23rd.
