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.
