|Already seen as one of the most exciting new rock acts in the home country of the USA, Dirty Honey are set to establish themselves in the UK and Europe in the summer of 2022 with their debut album release and full UK and Europe touring schedule. Their 14 track debut release, “Dirty Honey EP / LP”, will be released on the 20th May 2022. |
The band will then support this with 28 shows across twelve countries in the UK and Europe – including headline shows, festival slots and supports to Guns n’ Roses, KISS and Rival Sons.
Vocalist Marc LaBelle Says, “It’s an honour to finally bring our music across the Atlantic. I’ve always thought we’d be well-received in the UK and Europe and it just felt right to release both the EP and LP together after having had to wait so long to get there. It really feels like the right time to introduce Europe to our particular brand of Filthy rock n’ roll and I also can’t wait to bring our live show to European audiences. Our maiden voyage across the pond is literally hitting every type of venue from our own headlining club shows to theatres with Rival Sons and stadiums with Guns n’ Roses and KISS. I can vividly remember busking in Piazza di Santa Croce in Florence and never in my wildest dreams did I think we’d be playing some of the biggest stadiums in Europe.
“Whilst harking back to the band’s influences, “Dirty Honey EP / LP” is at the same time a completely fresh, contemporary-sounding record. From the dirty groove of LP opener “California Dreamin'” to the laid-back melodic beauty of EP track “Down The Road”, from the driving “Gypsy” (LP) to the riffs and infectious chorus of “Heartbreaker” (EP), this is a stunning collection of groove-laden rock songs.
The band’s first single from the album will be “When I’m Gone”. With a performance-based video HERE, the song was the first-ever track from an unsigned band to reach the No 1 spot on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart.

Dirty Honey are an established live act in the USA. After a sell-out USA headline tour in June last year, the band supported The Black Crowes for their 35 date USA tour in late 2021.
The band are currently on a 33 date USA co-headline tour with Mammoth WVH titled the “Young Guns” tour. In the words of legendary USA radio broadcaster Eddie Trunk, “Dirty Honey and Mammoth WVH are two of the best new, real, emerging rock bands we have today. Touring together will prove that rock is far from dead, and will no doubt showcase its very bright future.”
