Dirty Honey has been out on the road opening for Slash, and be opening for the likes of Guns N Roses, Ice Cube, Alter Bridge, Skillet, 10 Years and Ministry.  They are the first new band to debut a single this year on active rock radio.  Here is the information that was sent to us about this amazing feat:

White-hot rock band Dirty Honey has already opened for The Who and Slash, was chosen as iHeart Radio’s “On The Verge” Rock artist, has its music video in rotation at MTV, and this week becomes this year’s first new band to have its debut single crack the Active Rock Radio Top 10, with “When I’m Gone” claiming the #9 spot. The blossoming career of the Los Angeles-based rockers is off to a blazing start.

Today, the band announces new dates on its Summer North American tour that will include support slots with Guns N’ Roses, Alter Bridge and Skillet, a handful of headline shows, and appearances on some of the late summer’s biggest music festivals.  All upcoming dates are listed below, and tickets are available now; log on to https://www.dirtyhoney.com/the-band for all ticketing information.

Dirty Honey’s North American tour is in support of the band’s self-titled debut EP, recorded in Australia last Fall by producer Nick DiDia (Pearl Jam, Rage Against The Machine). In addition to the aforementioned opening slots, the band – Marc LaBelle/vocals, John Notto/guitars, Justin Smolian/bass, and drummer Corey Coverstone – has already made its mark this year at Welcome to Rockville, Rocklahoma, Heavy MTL, Epicenter, and Sonic Temple (“…a sweet-as-honey blues-rock vibe with dirty, gritty undertones, and vocalist Marc LaBelle’s diverse vocal range.”/Metal Nexus).
