DIRTY HONEY, the hotly-buzzed band that is giving the Millennials and Gen Z what they've been starved for - high-energy, sexy, gritty, and unapologetically-loud-AF rock'n'roll - announces a series of new dates added to its "Rolling 7's 2020 U.S. Tour," as well as its first-ever concerts to be played in Australia and Japan. The itinerary includes headline shows, appearances at major music festivals including Sonic Temple, Rocklahoma, Download Festival in Tokyo, and the Beale Street Music Festival, as well as several major rock radio station-sponsored festivals. Also, Dirty Honey will head to Byron Bay, Australia in early Spring to record new music with producer Nick DiDia (Rage Against the Machine, Pearl Jam) who produced the band's self-titled EP. This announcement is made as the band's second single, "Rolling 7's," blasts into the Top 10 at Active Rock Radio at #9, following in the footsteps of Dirty Honey's debut single, "When I'm Gone," that made record business history last Fall when it went to #1 on Billboard's
Mainstream Rock Chart, the first time in the chart's 40-year history that an unsigned band's single went to the top of that chart.
Dirty Honey has played to SRO crowds on all "Rolling 7's" headline dates, and the band's upcoming, confirmed 2020 itinerary is listed below. "Rolling 7's Tour" VIP packages and public on-sale starts Friday, February 21 at 10AM (local). Log on to https://www.dirtyhoney.com for all ticketing and VIP packages details.
Dirty Honey - Marc LaBelle/vocals, John Notto/guitars, Justin Smolian bass, and Corey Coverstone/ drums - kicked off 2020 with a Best New Alt/Artist nomination for the upcoming 2020 iHeart Radio Music Awards, being named on Revolver's Fan Poll as one of the "5 Bands Likely to Break Out in 2020," recognized as Canadian rock radio's #1 International Breakout Artist for 2019, and has accumulated more than 16-million total streams. Not bad for a developing - and still unsigned - rock band.

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."
