"Dave Davies Kronikles: Mystical Journey" to Be Released on February 9th, 2010; Davies to Play Select U.S. Shows in Early 2010

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 28, 2009) - As co-founder of The Kinks and as an iconoclastic solo artist, Dave Davies is one of rock's most influential and identifiable figures. The legendary guitarist/singer/songwriter's fans will be introduced to another side of Davies with the release of "Dave Davies Kronikles: Mystical Journey" on February 9th, 2010. A feature-length memoir of Davies' lifelong pursuit of spiritual enlightenment, the DVD documents the artist's extensive inquiries into a variety of eclectic areas, including Eastern philosophies, spiritualism, psychic phenomena, astrology and meditation.

The DVD exclusively features Davies' new single, "New Dawn, New Day." In addition, Davies will perform select shows in the U.S. around the DVD release date for the first time in 5 years.

"Dave Davies Kronikles: Mystical Journey," which Davies co-directed with his son Martin Davies, offers a compelling mix of newly shot footage, interview segments and archival material, including new Davies performances and rare vintage home movies of The Kinks on tour. Davies serves as on-screen narrator of the film, whose soundtrack features a variety of music drawn from various periods of his remarkable career.

Dave Davies' four-and-a-half-decade body of music, both with The Kinks and on his own, is one of rock's most formidable catalogues. His innovative guitar work has been a seminal influence upon multiple generations of musicians, while his uncompromising persona has established him as a beloved icon of rock 'n' roll attitude.
