DIRTY HONEY ANNOUNCES DEBUT ALBUM AND RELEASES BRAND NEW SINGLE/MUSIC VIDEO, “CALIFORNIA DREAMIN”


After a string of chart hits and live triumphs, one of rock music’s most exciting new bands, DIRTY HONEY, is keeping the momentum going with the April 23, 2012 release of their self-titled debut full-length. The Los Angeles quartet is also releasing a new single, “California Dreamin’,” with a news feature and video that premiered today via Rolling Stone.  Check out the single and pre-order the album HERE.

A bold opener with towering chorus hooks and slipshod grooves, “California Dreamin'” features smoking guitar solos bookended by massive riffs and hooks.  Lyrically, the single puts a different spin on the idea of California as the promised land: vocalist/lyricist Marc LaBelle drew on the tough times he faced after moving west in the early 2010s to craft a bittersweet cautionary tale that hints at personal and emotional turbulence.

The Dirty Honey album does sound effortless and captures the lightning-in-a-bottle dynamics and energy of the band’s live sound. The collection boasts airtight songwriting that plays up their strengths:  sexy, bluesy, nasty rock ‘n’ roll.  LaBelle reaffirms his status as one of contemporary rock’s best vocalists on “The Wire,” while the gospel-tinted “Another Last Time” is a midtempo, organ-fueled album-closer bursting with soul.
