After the over doses, the inner fighting, years of excess and 25 million albums sold, one of rocks most enduring and iconic bands, Poison is back with a brand new album of their favorite rock covers. POISON’D! featuring all the original members (Brett Michaels, Bobby Dall, C.C. Deville, Rikki Rocket) presents the band’s first new studio recordings since 2002’s Hollyweird.

Produced by Don Was at Hensen Recording Studios in Hollywood, POISON’D! packs 13 explosive tracks, including new recordings of David Bowie’s “Suffragette City,” The Cars’ “You’re Just What I Needed,” The Romantics’ “What I Like About You,” Sweet’s “Little Willy,” The Marshall Tucker Band’s “Can’t You See” and The Rolling Stones’ “Dead Flowers.” Some of Poison’s best previously recorded covers are also featured on POISON’D!, including KISS’ “Rock and Roll All Nite,” Grand Funk Railroad’s “We’re An American Band” and Loggins & Messina’s “Your Mama Don’t Dance.”

“Poison is one of the greatest rock ‘n roll bands in the world and, after 20 years, they can slam better than ever, says POISON’D! producer Don Was. “They’re powerful musicians and very cool guys. We had a lot of fun making this album and I think you can hear it in the grooves – it’s got the jive and is truly alive! I urge everyone to listen to it!”

In support of the album Poison will be touring through out the U.S. Joining the guys on stage will be RATT and White Lion.
