Dirty Honey had been scheduled to fly to Australia yesterday to record new music and make its down-under debut at the Byron Bay Bluesfest in April. The guys did not make the trip, but are currently hunkered down in their respective L.A.-area homes, staying safe and healthy.
ABOUT DIRTY HONEY:
Unafraid to defy the innocuous music trends of today, the seemingly out-of-nowhere DIRTY HONEY, featuring Marc LaBelle/vocals, John Notto/guitar, Justin Smolian/bass, and Corey Coverstone/drums, has proven in just one year that their reinvention of rock n’ roll is so close to heaven yet so far from God. NPR cautioned, “Don’t believe anyone if they tell you ‘rock is dead.’ Dirty Honey rocks in the best possible way.” In November 2018, the Los Angeles-based rock band was completely unknown, recording its self-titled debut EP in Australia. The band launched on the scene by opening for heavy hitting legends Guns N’ Roses, Slash, and The Who and stunning audiences at major outdoor summer festivals including Sonic Temple, Heavy Montreal, Rocklahoma, Louder Than Life, Exit 111, and Welcome to Rockville. The strength of the band’s live show paved the way to dive straight into 2020 with a string of sold-out headline shows around the country. Rolling Stone referred to Dirty Honey’s live performance as being “rich in both riffs and rock-star vibes.”
