One of rock ‘n roll’s most exciting new bands — Dirty Honey — have hit the road again on a massive three-month tour across North America, and it just so happens that they hit Rams Head Live! in Baltimore on Friday, Nov. 3, for their Can’t Find The Brakes Tour.
On this tour, vocalist Marc LaBelle, guitarist John Notto, and bassist Justin Smolian will introduce North America to Dirty Honey’s new drummer, Jaydon Bean, a long-time friend of the band’s who came on board this past January, just before the band’s first massive ’23 UK/European headline tour launched. In its review of Dirty Honey’s Manchester tour stop in January, the UK’s Rock at Night wrote, “It’s difficult to believe that drummer Jaydon Bean appeared live with the band for the first time only a few days earlier. His high-quality playing and jovial on-stage persona blends well with his bandmates.”
Dirty Honey visit Rams Head Live! in support of their new album, Can’t Find the Brakes, which is scheduled for release the very day of this show in Baltimore!
Watch the official music video for “Won’t Take Me Alive” by Dirty Honey on YouTube:
“‘Won’t Take Me Alive’ was an instrumental idea I demoed on bass, drums, and guitar at my home studio,” said Notto. “I brought it to the band, we wrote a new chorus, and it was basically finished that quickly. Nick [DiDia] rented some vintage amps and really helped me get the raunchy sound and attitude I wanted for the riff.”
Produced by Nick DiDia (Rage Against The Machine, Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam) and recorded this past April at his Byron Bay, Australia studio, the song is loaded with Marc’s sleazy, passionate vocals and in-your-face attitude, bassist Justin’s throbbing bass, and Jaydon’s fresh and bad-ass grooves. As LaBelle put it about guitarist John Notto, “…the best riff I’d heard in the last decade. The song is full of sex and swagger, but it’s still got the heaviness and the fun that Dirty Honey’s all about.”
