Marco Mendoza will release his new solo album, “Viva La Rock”, on March 2, 2018 via Mighty Music. The disc was recorded in Denmark with the multi-talented producer and guitar player Søren Andersen (Glenn Hughes, Mike Tramp). “Viva La Rock” will be the first solo album in eight years from Mendoza, whose last effort, “Casa Mendoza”, coming out in 2010.
Mendoza has split his time on the road either with THE DEAD DAISIES or as a solo artist, he was delighted when Mighty Music offered him the opportunity to release an album.
“I am really excited about the release of this album,” says Marco. “It will be my first collection of new songs in seven years! I have been extremely busy with THE DEAD DAISIES since 2013 so when the opportunity to get some new music together came along, I jumped at it! I hope you guys have as much fun listening to it as I did recording it!”
Current Guns N’ Roses rhythm guitarist and Izzy Stradlin look alike Richard Fortus lent his talents to the album, guest starring on the Thin Lizzy Cover of Chinatown. It’s also important to note that Fortus did have a brief stint with Thin Lizzy back in 2011 when he replaced Vivian Campbell while he was back touring with Def Leppard.
