Title - [NOW] Dirty Honey
Artist - Dirty Honey
For those unaware, released in March 2019, the bands debut single, When Im Gone, became the first song by an unsigned artist to reach #1 on Billboards Mainstream Rock chart! [Their second single, Rolling 7s, went into the Top 5].
Dirty Honey opened for The Who, Guns N Roses, Slash and Alter Bridge, and was the must-see at major rock festivals such as Rocklahoma, Louder Than Life, Heavy MTL, and Epicenter. [On their first U.S. headline tour, the band sold out every date].
Their upcoming self-titled Dirty Honey album (due out April 23rd, 2021 via Dirt Records) builds on the bands output to date, driven by the smoking lead single California Dreamin that muses about lifes ebbs and flows, even in paradise.
The band (Marc LaBelle/vocals, John Notto/guitar, Justin Smolian/bass, and Corey Coverstone/drums) worked again with producer Nick DiDia (Rage Against the Machine, Pearl Jam) on this new album that captures the lightning-in-a-bottle dynamics and energy of their live sound.
1. California Dreamin
2. The Wire
3. Tied Up
4. Take My Hand
6. No Warning
7. The Morning
8. Another Last Time
With airtight songwriting that plays up their strengths: sexy, bluesy, nasty rock n roll, melodic hard rock, and soulful 70s blues-rock, the band open on the lead single, and true heart and soul of what these guys are at their core, the pulsating California Dreamin and back that up seamlessly with the rangy rocker The Wire, before bringing forth one heck of a doozy on the Mr. Big-esque, reaching AOR of Tied Up.
Next up is the drum-led Take My Hand and then the gently frenetic guitar rocker Gypsy, which are themselves followed by the melodic rock of No Warning, with the album rounding out on the foot-tapper The Morning, closing (all too soon) on the free flowing majesty of the Black Crowes-esque Another Last Time.
