On their hotly anticipated second album, Los Angeles hard rockers Dirty Honey take us on a thrilling journey through a wide range of emotions, exploring themes of love, loss, regret, and redemption.
In the tumultuous world of rock 'n' roll, some bands take years to find their groove, but for Los Angeles-based quartet Dirty Honey, success was an instantaneous revelation. Their meteoric rise began in September 2019 when they made history as the only unsigned artist in nearly four decades to top Billboard's Mainstream and Hard Rock Charts with their debut single, "When I'm Gone."
Fast forward to 2023, and Dirty Honey has firmly established themselves as a force to be reckoned with. Opening for legends like the Who, Guns N' Roses, and the Black Crowes, they not only held their own but garnered glowing reviews and standing ovations along the way. In 2022, they co-headlined the Young Guns Tour with Wolfgang Van Halen's Mammoth WVH.
Perhaps their crowning achievement was their self-titled album, which debuted at No. 2 on the Current Hard Rock chart, without the benefit of a major label. Upon its release, Rolling Stone, dubbed them "An Artist You Need To Know." Since then, they've become a "do-not-miss-band" throughout major North American summer festivals and their own headlining tours.
Now Dirty Honey is back with their latest album, Can't Find The Brakes, which they recorded in Australia. The first single, "Won't Take Me Alive," which dropped in July, is a raw, unapologetic rocker, while the follow-up, "Coming Home," is a deeply personal, heart-wrenching ballad that showcases their ability to move your soul.
As they embark on their 2023-24 world tour, Dirty Honey is proving they're more than just a flash in the pan. They're a hurricane of talent and energy, ready to leave a lasting mark on the music world.
With Marc LaBelle's goosebump-inducing vocals, John Notto's masterful guitar work, Justin Smolian's thunderous bass lines, and the addition of new drummer Jaydon Bean's bad-ass grooves, Dirty Honey is unstoppable. Their journey from chart-topping upstarts to international rock sensations is a testament to their unwavering dedication and undeniable talent.
