Touring together will prove that rock is far from dead, and will no doubt showcase its very bright future.”

— Eddie Trunk • TrunkNation Sirius XM Radio

LOS ANGELES, CA  — (November 3, 2021) — Two of today’s most dynamic live bands, Mammoth WVH and Dirty Honey, are joining forces to bring their kick-ass rock’n’roll out on a 30-date, co-headline North American tour.   The “Young Guns” tour begins on January 21 and will see the bands alternating the closing slot.  The artist tickets presale begins tomorrow at 10AM local, pre-sale password is YOUNGGUNS;  the general on-sale starts Friday, November 5 at 10AM local.   Log on with this link:  http://younggunstour.komi.io/ 

 

“We played one co-headline show with Dirty Honey back in September.   As soon as the night was over, we knew this would be a great package to take across the US.  We couldn’t be more excited to share the stage with them and give all of the fans an unforgettable night of rock music,” explains Wolfgang Van Halen.

 

Both of these “young guns” spent their summer on high-profile U.S. tours - Dirty Honey with The Black Crowes and Mammoth WVH with Guns N’ Roses.  With only two live gigs under their collective belt, Mammoth WVH’s tour initiation was a baptism-by-fire, opening for the iconic Guns N’ Roses in stadiums.   At the end of the tour, in Hollywood, Florida, Guns N’ Roses brought Wolfgang Van Halen back onstage to join them performing “Paradise City.”

 

After selling out their U.S. headline tour in June, Dirty Honey brought their sexy, bluesy rock’n’roll to amphitheaters with The Black Crowes.  Vocalist Marc LaBelle grew up listening to the Crowes, so this tour was truly a dream come true.  Winning over those who had primarily come to see The Black Crowes, Dirty Honey received standing ovations at the majority of the tour’s 35 shows.  Not bad for a still-breaking, opening act.

 

The "Young Guns” tour is in support of both artist’s self-titled debut albums; Mammoth WVH and Dirty Honey, both released earlier this year.  Both bands saw their debut singles - Dirty Honey’s “When I’m Gone” and Mammoth WVH’s “Distance” - occupy the #1 position on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart.  In addition, both bands’ debut albums made quite impressive bows; Mammoth WVH debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart, and Dirty Honey - the band, totally independent with no label affiliation - claimed the #2 position on that chart.

 

“People who come to our shows are going to see two bands who are looking to prove that rock’n’roll is definitely very much alive and well,” said Dirty Honey’s Marc LaBelle.  “We both carry the weight of that on our shoulders, and there’s a lot to prove.”

ABOUT DIRTY HONEY

To say that 2019 was a breakout year for Dirty Honey would be an understatement.  Recorded in Byron Bay, Australia with producer Nick DiDia (Pearl Jam, Rage Against The Machine), the band released its self-titled debut EP in March 2019.  The band didn’t waste any time before making music history when it became the only unsigned artist ever to hit #1 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Chart with its debut track "When I'm Gone.”  The band's second single, “Rollin 7s,"went into the Top 5 at Rock Radio (and was still headed up when COVID changed everything), and the music video has racked up more than 5.5-million YouTube plays. Between the Fall of 2018 and early 2020, Dirty Honey opened for The Who, Guns N' Roses, and Slash ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, performed at more than a dozen major summer festivals, including Welcome to Rockville, Louder Than Life, Heavy MTL, Rocklahoma, Sonic Temple and Epicenter, and played to SRO crowds at every show on its first-ever headline tour in December, January and February 2020.   Additionally, Dirty Honey was named Canadian Rock Radio's #1 International Breakout Artist of 2019, the band was nominated as Best New Rock/Alternative Artist for the 2020 iHeartRadio Music Awards, and Rolling Stone wrote about the band as an “Artist You Need To Know.”  On March 5, 2021, Dirty Honey unveiled  “California Dreamin’,” the lead single from its debut album that is set for release April 23, 2021.
