Mark Daly is proud to unveil “Pieces,” a captivating duet elevated by the vocals of Emily Armstrong, frontwoman of the band Dead Sara. The track features soul-stirring melodies and poignant lyrics, and is the latest glimpse into his forthcoming album Devil’s Arms, slated for release this spring by One Opportunity Records. In addition to the song being released on all streaming platforms, the official music video was also released.

Mark Daly comments on the single, “‘Pieces’ explores the journey of two lost souls who find each other when they thought all hope was lost. The track features my friend Emily Armstrong from Dead Sara. I love how her raspy vocals blend with my smoky ones. I pulled in some Led Zeppelin and grunge influences. The song feels big and alive. I wanted to convey the sadness of longing for someone and then the hope you feel when you find that person you’ve been searching for.”

Emily Armstrong adds, “When I heard Mark wanted me to appear on his new record I was flattered, and when the time came to get into the studio to record, things just flowed so naturally. The whole process just worked out so well.”


Devil’s Arms CD’s are now available for pre-order in the merch shop online:

“Pieces” follows lead single “I Wanna Be More” and is the second track to be released from Devil’s Arms. Additional singles will be released in the coming months in anticipation of the full length release.

Mark Daly launched a three-week U.S. tour in January as direct support for Mr. Big. The Irish rocker supported the band throughout the Midwest and Northeast, while also headlining his own shows, including a marquee performance at the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY.

Hailing from Cork, Ireland, Daly is no newcomer to American soil, having completed numerous domestic tours with heavyweights including CandleboxQueensrÿche, and Queensrÿche’s former frontman, Geoff Tate.

“I absolutely love everything about being on the road – meeting so many incredible people each night, getting lost in the music on stage. It’s pure magic,” says Daly.

Mark was first discovered while performing in his band The Voodoos in Spain. During one of their shows, music manager Brian Message (Radiohead, Nick Cave) was in the crowd and requested that Mark play some original songs. Brian decided to bring the band to London to record their first EP. It was in this defining moment that Mark decided to become a full-time musician and never looked back.

One early highlight in Mark’s career was performing at the MTV EMA Awards with The Voodoos after beating out 10,000+ bands from Europe for the slot. From there, Mark and the band began to tour throughout Europe and the USA. Mark’s first venture as a solo artist hit N0. 1 on the Scottish New Music Charts. Inspired by his son, Noah, the track “Your World” was written for an autism awareness charity.
